Speaking of agency.....every single one of our appointments fell out this week. Gahhhhh!!! Each and every one! We were so bummed, and I was very discouraged at first. But then I realized that everything happens for a reason and if all our appointments were falling out and nobody we went by on was home, there must be an individual out there that we needed to find in that moment. Right? Glass half empty to glass half full:) Conversions don't come easy in this part of the world...it takes so much faith!! Sister Green and I proceeded to call each potential ever written down in our Area Book, every former investigator, and every less active. We made probably 20 calls before Familie Kaindel, a less active family, answered. The Kaindels live really far away, and are really old, and therefore makes it really hard to come to Church. They were almost in tears when we called. They were so happy to get a call from the missionaries! We were able to set up an appointment for Thursday. (They live in Neudorf, which is literally right on the border of the Czech Republic...so it will be an adventure in itself to get there!)
Thought for this week? Blessings come when we work --- and have faith. After our phonecall session and a couple hours of going by on people and street contacting, we got phonecalls from Nicole, Ludwig (the blind actor), potentials, former investigators, and a less active family. We have appointments made for Tuesday,Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with these people! MIRACLES HAPPEN FAMILY!!!
I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for the opportunity and blessing I have had to serve here in this incredible city of Vienna.
I know that the Lord has been mindful of ME...just like He is mindful of each of you.
I love you all so much!!!
Schöne Woche meine Lieben!
