This past week has been full of learning and growth experiences for me. I went on exchanges again with Elder Roggow and we had heaps of spiritual experiences in that one day. Mainly because he came to me and asked me about how he can have better prayers because he feels like he can get more out of it and I told him pretty much everything that I've been sending in my last emails about prayer.
Then when we prayed together I told him some special advice, i recounted to him how the Savior is with us on our missions and in our lives. So if we pray as if Heavenly Father were kneeling next to us I asked him what would he say, at that moment the spirit was already testifying to him and me of what I was saying to him. And when we prayed it was AMAZING. I think he realized what prayer really was, a conversation with Heavenly Father. But among that were heaps of other experiences, I met this lady named Jenny and we were talking at a table across from a coffee shop and we just talked about life, religion etc. I finally asked her if she had any concerns about religion, and she spoke up and said that she is just missing a clear direction in her life. She doesn't know quite how to take care of herself (spiritually). I was able to teach her about some of the principles about the gospel like God being our father, and that he has a plan for us to be happy. I also taught her some of the steps of repentance and all in all it was actually the best street contact visit I've ever had so far!
