My Companions and I did a 24hr fast for our investigators, that they would be able to find a way to make it to church. Its tough for the ones that live across the Polochik River in Puente Viejo because its almost an hour walk to town and they all have little kids. So we prayed and fasted for them. We got to church and at first we didnt see any of our investigators, so we we were discouraged but then we turned around and there was one of our investigators with her baby! We were so happy that just one of our investigators had come! Throughout sacrament meeting we kept noticing less active members that we had been visiting had come as well!
After sacrament as my companions and I were heading to teach a sunday school class, a whole family of 5 walked in the church, OUR INVESTIGATORS from Puenta Viejo! It was an amazing feeling to see such a miracle, and I know it was because our fasting, prayer and obedience that they were able to come to church.
The power of fasting is real, I know it. I see miracles everyday, but to see our specific fast and prayer answered was a true testimony builder.
Also I earned my Q´eqchi´ name plaque this week! I had to bear my testimony in the language during district meeting. So, I’m an official Polochik Elder now.
See ya, I’ll check back in soon. Back to Work.
