Del City, Oklahoma- Week 87

It's been a good week, the weather has been nice, and we heard that it is going to be warming up part of the week, then a cold front might roll through, so I guess we will see how it is going to go. We have been continuing to share the new Easter video with everyone, and we have been able to see many miracles from it. One miracle is with a less active member and his wife who is not a member. So we have been going over there for a while, but not much has happened, and his wife didn't talk to us that much, so we went over there and shared the video with them, they all loved it and we started talking. We were talking about family history, and that's when his wife got excited and showed us this really old Styrofoam cup with  a lot of faded writing on it. She told us that her mother one day wrote down all the family history that she knew on the cup with names and dates before she pasted away many years ago, and she has kept it ever since. So we called one of the people in the ward who is good with family history and asked if she could come with us to see them later in the week. She did and helped them with a few things, we came back the next day after that, and his wife was totally different, she was excited to see us and let us inside, and they told us that it was great that that member was able to come over! They weren't able to set up a account that day, so I played around with it for a while, and finally I was able to make everything work, and showed them a little how to do it, and find people on the church's family history website. So I connected a few people together on the members side, he already had some family lines that went back to 1300. Someone else in his family has been doing it as well, but it was really cool to be able to show them that! He then said its probably time he gets back into church. Got a miracle all because of family history!!! On Thursday, we went on exchanges with the zone leaders, it was fun, I went to their area. It was nice to be able to be in a car all day! :) We had some miracles with that as well. The last appointment of the night we tried a former investigator again, and we taught him the restoration, and set a baptismal date with him, it was soo cool! So our investigators are doing good! :) We have a baptismal date set with one of them, that we are really excited about!
