Our success this week was we got a baptismal date for our investigator, br. rock. he has decided to forgo surgery for the time being for his baptism. dont worry, he is not endangering himself, but he is super solid for his baptism.
My personal highlight of the week was a lesson we had with 2 less actives. we were meeting and chatting with them when E. Petersen felt prompted to ask one of them, Anil, if he knew what a priesthood blessing was he. he didn't and so we taught him about it and told him if he wants one, he is welcome to ask for one. He decided he did, and asked me. Mind you, this was my 2nd time meeting the guy so i barely knew him. That blessing of comfort and counsel was the most powerful blessing I have ever given, and the spirit was there SO strongly. As I had my hands on his head i felt like a pulse, between my hands and his hair, its really hard to describe. In the blessing I used some wording to the effect of how he was going to meet Heavenly Father after this life, and if he lived up to what he needed to do to get there, that he would be able to embrace him in a hug, which was really weird thing for me to say, but i said it. After the blessing, he told me how when I said that that he was having the same thought, and how it was exactly what he was thinking at the time. We all just sat there for a couple minutes after and just basked in the spirit that was in that room. I have never felt the spirit so strongly to my recollection. I KNEW it was the spirit there, my chest felt warm, i was joyful and content, and it felt like there was an outward pressing from my chest. Super cool experience and I can testify today that The Holy Spirit and the Priesthood authority are real. I know it as sure as I live. I know the Lord has given us these things to bless and lead us.
I hope you all have a good week, and know that this is true, what I am doing here.
