|I can crush this castle betwixt my fingers!|
Can I just say something? I have never seen a missionary with more faith than Soeur Gerritsen. Every time she says someone is going to get baptized now, I believe her.
Quick Giovanni update before I get on with the flood of miracles. We weren't able to find out anything the ENTIRE week. BUT last night we passed his apartment for the 100th time and a woman answered the door. She said that he is super ill (like has to stay in bed all the time ill) and she is taking care of him. He can't even have visitors. (I know what this feels like......remember the week after spinal tap????) Please pray for him!

SUPER COOL MIRACLE.
Last week we were heading to the church for a reason that I can't even remember but I think we had a RDV so we were in a bit of a hurry. But I was completely drawn to contact this man as we were walking there. It was one of those moments when I don't think I could have not contacted him even if I wanted to. It was like angels shoved me into him. We had a nice conversation on the road but nothing life-changing but we set a time to meet the next week. So the day before our RDV comes and I call him to confirm. He answers on like the 2nd ring (WHAT) and then asks ME if we're still good for the RDV at 5 the next day....... this may not sound amazing but it is. Friday comes and we get to the church like one minute after 5 and he was already there. It keeps getting better trust me. Found out that Pedro is PORTUGUESE (I really wish I could speak Portuguese.... should have learned it in my 6 months at home hahaha). Our lesson was with Frere Giles (bishop) so it was extra spiritual. Pedro 100% opened up to us and told us basically his entire life story about his beliefs. He was baptized Catholic, became atheist and then about a year ago he had a really cool experience in which he received a confirmation that God was there. He told us that if we had contacted him a year ago he wouldn't have even spoken to us. He said that everything happens for a reason and there's no such thing as "coincidence." HE IS AWESOME. We just need to get him better integrated in the ward and he could be completely golden... PRAY FOR HIM TOO!!
