Gotta Love God's Work!

Friends & Family!
Wow, there is so much I want to say, so many miracles I want to share..I don't even know where to start! God's Hand is in this work people! It is such a blessing to get to see it every single day. It is such a blessing to see the continuing fulfillment of prophecy: Him "proceeding to do a marvelous work and a wonder among this people" (Isaiah 29:10-14). (Daniel 2:44-45) "The stone cut out of the mountain without hands" rolling forth, to gather in the last dispensation "together in one all things in Christ (Ephesians 1:9-10). He is actively engaged in every moment and as missionaries we get to witness it first hand!!:) What a gift this time we have to serve is!!
Haha  I will try to summarize this as quick as possible :) but eventually I would love to share the full story because it is simply amazing, the details crazy! On Friday we needed our oil changed because our car said that we were down to 4%. We decided to just go over a lunch hour so we could get it over with real quick and get back out. But when we went to check the car in, the guy wanted us to come back at 4:30...haha even though there wasn't anyone else in line in or waiting, and they don't normally do appointments, but we were excited and said "Okay!" knowing that God had a plan--He always does! Haha and this day was no exception :)
We walked in at 4:30 to try checking the car in and after we handed over the keys, a girl who was waiting in the lobby area (which was now full and busy) seeing our badges said "Hey! I know missionaries." We got talking with her and found out she had been taught before and was going to be baptized and then moved to E-town the week before her baptism. We ended up teaching her, prayers and all, right there in Monro while waiting for our car to be done. Her car had finished long before but she felt she needed to stay and keep talking with us. We invited her to church with us for Sunday and she came and had the most powerful revelatory experience sitting there in Sacrament. She pulled us into a room right after the first hour and expressed how God was speaking to her and she just knows that God wants her to be baptized and she needs to get to the temple and she had a vision of her in the temple. She said she won't feel complete until she does whatever it takes to get to the Lord's House.
Saturday was also such a happy day!!:) Tracy entered the waters of baptism, making covenants with the Lord that she had been seeking her whole life. The scriptures in Doctrine & Covenants 6:14-15 just describe Tracy perfectly :) "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, blessed art thou for what thou hast done; for thou hast inquired of me, and behold, as often as thou hast inquired thou hast received instruction of my Spirit. If it had not been so, thou wouldst not have come to the place where thou art at this time. Behold, thou knowest that thou hast inquired of me and I did enlighten thy mind; and now I tell thee these things that thou mayest know that thou hast been enlightened by the Spirit of truth" Tracy is a true disciple of Christ, always yearning to follow Him and find His truth. She knew there was more and went from church to church looking for His fullness. It got to a point after learning and trying everything she started to lose hope that Christ's church was not on the Earth anymore, and decided that she would just have to settle with, what she calls, "watered down Christianity". And then one late night working at the hospital (she is a trauma surgeon) she got talking with a coworker expressing all of her questions and hopes. Her coworker was a member of the church and Tracy was so excited as they spent the night hours searching all over the church website. Tracy was so excited all of her questions were being answered, the spirit was filling her soul! She came to church, continued to ask, seek, and knock and God continued to open His truths to her. He guided her every step of the way. It was such a blessing to get to be in her lessons and see His Spirit enlighten and open her mind on how she can follow him more fully. I wish all of you could have been there to see the joy and peace in her countenance as she came out of the water.
Keep the faith brothers and sisters! Let your faith move you forward, always growing closer to God as you allow Him to teach you and guide you in His paths. Trust Him, pray to him! He will answer every question, and open every door as long as you have the faith to ask HIM.
