This week was a pretty good week.
We had committed our investigator Steven, who is trying to find a job, to fast and pray, and then go out and search for a job. We testified of the many blessings that come as we fast. Guess what?!?!?!?! HE FASTED!! He said that it was good but he didn't feel a whole lot different. We told him to be patience, continue looking, and the Lord will help and bless him. That was amazing that he had a strong enough faith to fast. We are so proud of him. Also, we have a Less-active named Shakira that we have been visiting recently. We also felt prompted to commit her to fast and pray and she took the challenge as well. She is a busy Mom of two and is going through a struggle right now. She said that she felt better after fasting and can feel God's love for her more abundantly right now as well. She is so sweet.
Sunday was so amazing!!! First of all, our branch president asked me to give a talk this Sunday on Teaching by the Spirit. So, with the little time I have as a missionary I whipped up a little something Sunday Morning (I am not proud of this fact) and it actually went pretty well. The spirit truly was the teacher. AND....drum roll please!!!! We had 2 investigators at church!!! That was the first time I have had investigators come to church in a long time...since before I was here on Barbados. What a blessing that was. Sherri and Sandrene came to church. We were a little nervous at first because we had told both of them that we would bus with them. Obviously we couldn't be in two places at once. We were blessed because one of our members, Sister Griffith (who comes out teaching with us) lives near Sandrene and was willing to bus with her to church. I LOVE BUSING!! It is so fun haha. I feel like more of a missionary when I am walking around and busing. While it is a blessing to have a car, it can get a little boring after a while. You don't get to talk to as many people. Also, on Sunday we had 15 contacts. It was pretty sweet :)
We met a really nice lady named Marcia and a guy named Shakeel who lives there too. They let us come in and share a message with them. I think Shakeel is Marcia's son or nephew or something like that. They were very nice. I am excited to go visit them again.
Anywho, I hope you have a fantastic week. I love and miss you.
Love, Sister Breana Stewart
