I love you all so much. being able to see you all yesterday was the coolest. it feels like i was right there with you all! im sorry i failed to express how much i really love you all. but please know at least one thing; that all of the success i am receiving, is thanks to YOU and YOUR obedience and faithfulness and prayers. a missionary is nothing without the support of his heavenly father and his earthly family. i am absolutely positive that the Lord is allowing me to be an instrument and allowing me to receive blessings because my family is acting in such a manner that i deserve to be happy. i dont know if that makes sense really haha but yea.
plleeeaase dont think that i am not at home because i dont want to be. i cant be home just yet because the Lord has continued preparing people that need to hear my testimony. please know that i adore you all and miss you so so much!!! im doing my best to stay focused, its going to be such a short time till im back i promise. not even a full month! im so lucky to be able to know of the restored gospel and to be able to share it with all people!! even on pday!
on saturday this guy stopped us in the street, desperate to know the truth. i say desperate because her approached us as someone dying of thirst, and im not exaggerating. we gave him a pamphlet and our number so we could teach him later on. its always about a 50/50 chance that those people return the call or ask for more info, but this morning he called us and asked to meet with us. so we told him to go to the church and we would meet him there. we took one of our investigators with us that will be baptized next weekend, and it was the coolest lesson ever!!! he was amazed that there are people that actually know what the bible is saying. and he felt the spirit so strongly, and our investigator Karla bore her testimony and told him that she knows this is all true and that he is right where he needs to be. it was so awesome!!! he just wanted to know everything!! we invited him to pray to know if its true but he said, "well yes ill pray and ask, but i already know that what you have told me today is true." and he accepted to be baptized!! what!! he doesnt live in our area but how awesome! we just called up the sisters to pass him along and hes going to church on sunday. he got it. he understood. he was starving for the truth, like amos 8:11-12 states, (dont know how it translates in english) but there is no feeling like being an instrument for another person to feel the spirit.
also, i am so grateful for every teacher in sunday school that prepares their lessons with the spirit and teaches by it! the lesson manuals are perfect! our investigator Angel whos getting baptized this friday had every last doubt answered in the 3rd hour! he is so excited!! the church is true. still. and forever.
if you really love our Father in Heaven, you will be obedient to his every commandment. so be strong. dont leave your room in the morning without praying for the strength to overcome every temptation and be guided in every step that you take. be an instrument in the Lord's hands. if you show him your willingness, He will give you lots to do!! i testify of all these things and leave you by saying that miracles are real and faith is necessary in order to experience them, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
love, hermana zimmerman.
p.s. hna morales says im officially a ghost is this mission haha.
