This week was rough. Almost everyday this week our appointments fell through. And we were trying to stay positive, but it was difficult.
One night we felt that we should revisit an old investigator and when we got there we saw that her mom was worried because she (our investigator) was not moving. We didn't know what to do in the moment, but we felt that we should give her a blessing. We explained that a blessing is given by a Melchizedek Priesthood holder, by the laying on of hands and by inspiration, to one who is sick or otherwise in need of special counsel, comfort, or healing and if the blessing is for this sick, consecrated oil is used (James 5:14-15). Afterward we gave the blessing. Moments after the blessing she was the same, but then she started moving again and she was moving her eyes. It was a amazing experience to be able to use the priesthood.
This week our church attendance wasn't as high as last week, but it was higher than normal. Also I just finished reading Jesus the Christ. It felt good to have finally completed reading the book.
