This work is truly wonderful. I had many experiences this week that confirmed that fact to me. Let me tell you one of them. So last night we had about 45 minutes of free time so we decided to do some contacting. We were walking down a street that we walk down all the time and Elder Clifford felt impressed to knock a certain door. So we did. After knocking a little boy answered the door and we asked him to go and get his dad. His father, Lazerus, came to the door and before we could even say anything he invited us to come in. He walked us to the back of his house where his wife was, sat us down, and then thanked us for coming over. We hadn't said more than good evening at this point. haha. So once we sat down we told them who we were and why we knocked their door, and they just continued to thank us and thank us. During all of this I was sitting there just nodding my head saying, "this work is incredible...". When else would this ever happen? Someone letting complete strangers into their house without saying a word. We were with them for about a half an hour and we were able to teach the restoration and find out a little bit more about them. They asked if they could come to church and we said no. haha just kidding. We told them the directions and they committed to coming. Another family! I love my job so much... What we're selling sells itself, it's great! I truly couldn't be happier. We are seeing great progress with those that we are teaching and we have quite a few people on their way to baptism. Life is good! Let me tell one more story. So this week we didn't have much time for finding since our time was limited due to our trip to Huambo, which went great by the way, so we were kind of worried that our ares would suffer a little bit. But the Lord had our backs. We had 4 consecutive lessons in which the person that we were going to teach had a friend or family member there waiting to hear our message. It's so nice when you're investigators do your finding for you! A phrase that is commonly used here is "God is good". How true is that? He truly is hastening his work and preparing a way for His children to hear his Gospel. I love this work so much and am so grateful for this time the Lord has given me! God is good!

Thank you for your prayers and support! I love you all so much!
