September 30, 2013 - 4th Week

Well, it’s been another week, and I can’t believe how fast it has gone. I really can’t. It seems like  right when you don’t think that you can fit anymore appointments or lessons, somehow you do. This week we met with a lot of Russian background potential investigators, we have already had one become an investigator and her name is Lyudmila. She is a great person. Elder Evans and I met with her and had great lesson with her. She had great questions that just opened up for knowledge and to know that this gospel is true, the only problem is that she spoke very little German and I mean very little. A lot of the time was spent in Russian to German dictionary’s trying to get our message across. We met with more potential from Russia and we set up appointments for all of them. The objective for this week and the coming week is Russian. I would have never have thought that I would have to speak Russian as well as German. Talk about brain over load. We did have a small miracle happen this week. We have a very less active member that speaks Russian and he is the only one in our whole ward that speaks Russian. So putting faith in the lord and with a little bit of luck, Elder Evans and I hoped that if we went by his home and asked him if he would joint teach with us, we could better teach all of our Russian investigators and maybe bring him back to activity. So we went by and we knocked on his door. He opened up and he was so happy to see us, so happy he forgot his German and spoke in very fast Russian. We extended to offer for him to come with us on a joint teach and he said yes before we could finish the sentence. He wants to help with all of our investigators that are Russian. Miracles happen all the time and you just have got to walk in faith and know that the Lord will watch over you and guide his missionaries.
I do have to cut this email short because we are going to Oktoberfest today and we need to get going. I love you all and until next time,
Elder Martinez
