Elder Tavis Smith

Indian Outlaw

Pretty crazy and amazing week!!!!

Each week we find and talk to so many people. Some more willing to talk than others. Every once in a while we will find someone that we think, "man this might go somewhere." Sometimes it does but other times it doesn't. 

A few weeks ago Elder Smith and I were walking into an apartment complex and I saw a lady outside smoking. I felt prompted to go and talk to her.When I did, she told us that she would really enjoy us coming over and talking to he about the church.  This was one of those experiences that I thought, "man this might go somewhere." We set up a time to come back and then departed ways. The next week we went to her house for the scheduled appointment. We knocked on the door a few times but no one answered.  We decided to call her... No answer there either. A couple hours later we sent her a text and we felt like we were left on read...Not going to lie I felt a little upset and was wondering what happened!  But we moved on quickly!
This week we were going to a lesson in that same apartment complex.  As we approached the complex I saw a lady get out of her car and I thought, "She looks super familiar, but I don't know why..."  We walked up to her and realized it was Danielle! She showed us her phone and said she never answers texts.  She had over 200 text messages that were left on read!  We again set up a time to come back for the next day.
The next day we go over there and notice that her door is wife open! I was pretty stoked because I thought for sure she was home. We knocked and we heard someone walk around in the back room, but no one came to the door! Upsetting...We called her and surprisingly she answered and told us that she was on her way home.
Long story short we had an amazing lesson with her. She asked a lot of questions about the Plan of Salvation!  At the end of the lesson I invited her to attend Christ's church and she and her brother accepted.  They said they will come next week!
I know that God's timing is not ours! I am grateful for a perfect plan that has been set forth by God and made possible by our Savior! 
Love, Elder Johnson
