Small Miracles

Dear everyone,

This past week has been one of cool tender mercies of the Lord! A lot of it happened on Wednesday, it was pretty funny we started out the day by just going and knocking on some doors and then after that it was lunch time. So Elder Choi asked if we could go to Subway because we had a coupon so I said sure. While we were there ordering our food a guy working there was like "Hi Elders" but then he just kept doing his thing. But when we were checking out he said to me, "I want to thank you I really felt the spirit today while you were here." and Elder Choi and I were like... uhh okay. Then he asked us why we were here in Beenleigh and I said serving the Lord. and he said I know my family are in the such and such ward. And then we pretty much said goodbye. 

Then after lunch we had to go help one of the elders in our district fix their tire because they had a flat tire and no jack... haha so we went and helped them. Then afterward I had to go conduct a baptismal interview (my first one.....) haha I was pretty nervous but it was all good it was just a nine year old. So that went really well! but then afterwards when we got back to the car we got a phone call. Then when we answered she was like is this Elder Choi and Elder Pierce the missionaries who went to Subway today?.... umm... yep. She said The boy at the counter was my brother who has decided to be inactive for years and chose to live a life very against the gospel and he swore that God wasn't real. But she said that after we came in to Subway that day he felt the spirit so strong that he knew that God was real and that everything that he used to believe was true! and we were like.... uh no way! We didn't even say that much to him but then she thanked us for serving missions and said that this was probably one of the reasons that Heavenly Father sent us to the Brisbane mission. And now the boy is going to prepare to serve a mission and turn his life around. It was an amazing experience and one that I will hold close to my heart :) 

Also we have been having some troubles getting anyone to come to church so Elder Choi fasted for it and then out of the blue an old investigator who we didn't invite or see in a while out of the blue turned up and said that she just felt she needed to come!

 Really cool stuff, the church is true.  I love you all have a great week!
Elder Pierce
