Words don't even explain!!

Well Holy Crap this Week has been hard but amazing at the same time! to start of with we went to the temple on friday and it was great! we were  able to have a great time. i was able to feel peace and not stress for one of the few times on my mission! haha Bro banner is crazy as ever! he gives me more and more crap every day! but what ever. Well To the amazing part of last week! i will start from the first! so 3 weeks ago we got a refferal from church head quarters! Our refferal secratary actually called us and said she had a new refferal for us. she said that she had just talked to a women on the phone for about 30 mins and that she was golden! so we thought sweet we will contact her right away! so i called and no answer... well we thought that we would try later that week so we called her all that week but she never answered. the referral secratary said that this girl Lyndsay would be out of town for til the following sunday so we just figured thats why she was not answering. Well that sunday we finially got a hold of her she said she had just got back from colorado and she would love to meet and the sooner the better! so we scheduled the apointment for tuesday at 9. so like always we decide to take brother banner! so we should up that morning hoping for the best that she would just be there but we did not expect what happened next. we knocked and she was there. she welcomed us in and took us to her living room and told us to sit down. She then proceed to tell us her story from about three weeks ago and told us how she found the church. i will start her story from the first. She is 29 and has a boyfriend that lives in colorado. he is a green Beret is the army.  and they were playing on getting married in may. 3 weeks ago hey called her and told her that he was a member of the LDS church and that his faith was important to him even though he was inactive. and he asked her if she would support him in going back to church. and she said well i would but i dont want that kinda of marriage i want a marriage that we are right by each others side through everything! so i am going to look into the church! so she started talking to her boyfriends sister who is a member and started researching everything about the Church. as we were talking to her the spirit was amazing and she just wants to do what God wants her to do! we keep talking and she told us that she was 50 pages in to the Book of Mormon already and we asked what she had read and she told us all about Nephi and Lehi and Lehi's dream and it was awesome! it was amazing so we got into the lesson of the Restoration from there! everything just clicked with her and made sense! she then asked but how do i know this is true and how can i know i am feeling the spirit! and brother banner said i am feeling right now and just started craying. then elder bloskas had tears then she had tears! i bore my testimony of the holy ghost and it was just amazing! she is so prepared! we scheduled a lesson for thursday 2 days latter! we met with her again and taught the plan of salvation. and one of the first questions she asked was, " well if we have to come to earth to gain experience and a body to become like God, did God have to do the same on a different planet and does God have a God?!" what kinda investigator asks that! so we told her yes and she said ok makes sense! it was amazing! so we taught the rest of the Plan of Salvation up to the Earth life and left with a pamphlet. and invited her to church! and to come early so we could give her a church tour for her and her son parker who is 6. so they showed up to church and we gave them a tour! it was awesome! then we went to the rest of church. during sacrament me and parker drew pictures of monsters and he drew a picture of jesus i will send those later. then in gospel doctrine Lyndsay told us that after we have left her house on tuesday that she was reading the Plan of Salvation pamphlet about the atonement and it hit her! she said she just started balling! she realized what the savior had done for her! the she said she turn the page and it talking about repenting and so she starting pray and asking God for forgiviness of all she has done! She is awesome!!!!!!! it is amazing to she the gospel touch peoples lives like this! we are going to see them to night and have a family home evening with them! well i hope you all have a great week! love Elder Dunn
