Week #21 -give will to the Lord

Greetings all, This was a blessed week here in Hamilton. A couple great things happened here. I had been reading a talk sent from home called "the fourth missionary" which talks about the 4 kinds of missionaries. The 4th missionary is the, in a sense the greatest missionary. He does everything he's supposed to do, but what separates him and the third missionary in that he completely gives his will to God. He leaves behind everything for the work and does everything the Lord would have him do. He just gives it all to the Lord. So I decided to pray and just totally surrendered my will. That's when the amazing things started to happen. 
On Tuesday we went to a investigators and went over the baptismal questions with him which he seem pretty ready for. As we were leaving we were driving, it was snowy and we were coming up to an intersection so i put on the brakes and the car started sliding into the intersection and went halfway into it before we stopped and cars passed just in front of us coming from the right. No cars came from the left though and if they did we would have been t-boned right on my side but for some reason no cars came from that direction and we got out of there without a scratch. Just crazy.
 Then the next day our investigator had his baptismal interview and he passed. It was so exciting! The next day we were doing some tracting and though we didn't have any immediate success we were able to talk to a woman who was a Anglican minister and also a guy who gave us a book he had worked on and told us to spread it around which was interesting haha.
 As soon we were heading back home we got a call from a member saying that her friend who was a woman we had taught on splits wanted to be baptized which was pretty great. we Were also able to find some new people to teach.
 Then on Saturday we saw a BAPTISM! It was so great to be able to see the work of the Lord and see our friend enter the waters of baptism and then on Sunday he found his own way to church which was awesome.

 Since giving my will to the Lord I have seen tons of miracles and my conversations have been much more fruitful with tracting and contacting people. Just yesterday we were working in the area and met a man who is Pentecostal and invited us in and we were able to share with him more of the gospel.

Just great things happening here. Love you all.
