Miracles (posted by mom)

I love this work, I know it is directed by God and as long as we are striving to do his will, he will allow us to be in the right place at the right time.

We have certainly seen many blessings here in Gangshan. This past week while we were at the church meeting with a recent convert, one of our investigators saw us and came in. He had a changed heart. We were able to bear testimony of baptism and help him resolve to read scriptures, pray, and come to church. He accepted the goal, and we sent him on his way.

We were shocked when the next day while meeting with a recent convert, another investigators passing by stopped in and sat down with us. I care about this investigator and until now, has not been willing to take the next steps toward baptism. We shared with him a scripture about how 'the Spirit will not continue to strive with man' and encouraged him to set a baptismal goal and keep the word of wisdom while the spirit was still striving with him. He accepted the goal and set up a baptismal interview, and now he is on track to be baptized.

Among our recent converts is a Liu family. The Liu mom finished the Book of Mormon about a week ago! We set a goal with them to go to the temple in a year to be sealed for time and all eternity. We are really excited for their family! They have two daughters and one grandson who are still not members. One of their daughters and their grandson live in our area. They are both busy, but one of my biggest desires right now is to help them accept the gospel and allow their new found family tradition bless future generations for eternity.

We are working hard, and seeing many blessings! Love, Elder Harris
