The Blessing- Week 46

We had another great week here in Lawton! I love Elder Dutson and we are having so much fun together! 

The rain the last couple days has been quite a sight, seeing roads turn into rivers and parks turn into lakes... 

For a miracle this week; We have been trying to see Ryan, Sherita and DJ for the last week since we met with them and taught them about the Restoration and they desired to be baptized and agreed to work towards being baptized on July 9th. So we had an incredibly spiritual and powerful visit with them, set a return appointment and then couldn't ever make contact with them again. Then yesterday, we got home at about 8:50 and decided to make a few calls and when neither of them answered we made the decision to go back out until 9:00 to try and find someone we could talk to. We walked outside and started walking but to our dismay, we saw Ryan and DJ taking out the trash and we offered to help and got to talk to them. He said that he had gone online after our last visit so we immediately gasp for air out of fear of what is the greatest fear as a missionary. But, the response never came, he didn't get into any of the anti-Mormon literature and came out knowing all sorts of things about the restoration and Joseph Smith. We also learned that he is working 2 jobs so he works from 7:00a.m. to 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. most days of the week and that is why we hadn't been able to catch them but we set up another return appointment for a time he isn't working and we got his number. #MiracleAfterMiracle

Of course, we experienced many more miracles this week but all in all, we are working hard, having fun, and being obedient, all of the great things that lead to a happy mission and life.

Keep the faith,
Elder Ricks
