Yay we just finished skyping! I now only have 20 minutes to email so I'll try to make this fast :)
I'll just share a few miracles we had. On Wednesday we were sitting on a bench on the busway and Sister Xiao was contacting a lady, and then this guy comes up to us and asks us if we are Mormon. He said he just barely finished a conversation with one of his friends about finding truth and where he could find it. He said he had learned about all these different religions and his friend asked if he had learned with Mormons and he said no but that he wanted to. So then right after that he ran into us. And we always have our Books of Mormon out so he recognized us. We talked to him for a bit and then he said he had time right then to meet with us. We had an appointment and he was a man, so we called the Elders and helped him find Senopati and he met right then. He also came to church this Sunday :) It's so true that the Lord puts people in our path, but really that the Lord puts us in their path! Hopefully he has a lot of progress in the next few weeks.
Saturday we did a service project at an inactive members house. His name is Brother _________. His house is pretty large and has a flooding problem, so they want to try to do some renovations to fix the house and the problems. But it is only him and his older sister there who are in their middle sixties so it is hard for them to do very much with the home. They had massive book shelves and wardrobes down in this area that they couldn't move, so the Elders, the Jensens (mission couple) and some members came and we helped clean out some of their house. We are no way near done but at least the men got the furniture out :) The Elders were late at the beginning, so we were able to teach Brother ________ older sister, _________. She doesn't really have a religion, so we taught her a little bit. When we invited her to church, she said that the door was broken because the wood had warped so they couldn't close it so there always had to be someone at home. Well, Elder Jensen heard that and him and Sister Jensen own a construction house building company, so miraculously there was a planer so he fixed and sanded down the door so it could be locked. So they said since they fixed it that means she has to come to church :) AND SHE DID! She was shy but she is fun if she knows people as well. We really hope the service we gave them and having us go visit her and uplift her will open her up to the gospel :)
Our other Investigator at church was ________. She is a friend of a member who is from Indonesia but now lives in North Dakota. The member came to visit for a while, so she invited her and some of her other relatives who aren't members to learn with us. So we taught her once and she had quite a few questions after church, Now we have an appointment with her on Thursday. :)
Hopefully we will have more information about them for next week. Next week is stake conference so that will be fun to write about too.
Also _______ my convert in Bogor, got her patriarchal blessing so that's really cool!
Love, Sister Davis
