Letter from January 23rd, 2012

This week has been normal, we did several divisions this week with the district leaders. I went with Elder Lewis in his sector and it was fun to work with him again.  I also went with Elder Smith this week.

We had a cool spiritual guidance moment this week. It was later at night and my companion suddenly stopped and knocked a door (which was actually an intercom doorbell). Generally the intercoms we call "rejection boxes" because the people usually are really annoying when they answer them, especially at night. But this time they came out, gave us a piece of cake (it is quite normal for people to offer you food or something to drink at the door here) and the lady said, "My parents said they don´t have time right now, but said to come back tomorrow." We were really surprised. They weren´t there the next day, but we passed by the day after and they were there. They even received us when they had tons of vistors at their house (generally people do not let us in in these cases). They had shared with missionaries before and are a united family (Mom and Dad love each other, their kids are respectful, etc.). So it was really cool to see that even when we don´t realize it, the Spirit is guiding us.

Anyways, I hope you all had a great week.
Elder Taylor Thomas
