Always Follow the First Prompting


This week was AWESOME!  found a lot of people to teach. Also went on exchanges with my District leader(Elder Warner). So first off it takes about an hour to an hour and a half to get to there apt from Amherst. So Elder Warner and i got to there place and we still got like an hour or so to work and we didn't eat dinner yet. So we went across the street and got wings. Now they said it would be a 15 minute wait. So we were like lets go out and contact. So we contact one lady and she wasn't interested. But then we decided to go know on this door. Now on the previous exchange with the Elders we picked up this potential named Joey. Now we knock on Joeys door and talk to his wife and said hey we talked to Joey Ect. We go in and they have a family of 7 and 5 of them are eligible to be baptized. So we taught them and gave them a Book of Mormon, within 15 minutes we picked up 5 Investigators. We got back ate are wings then headed home. Then Elder Warner said so how many Investigators do you want to pick up this exchange. HAHAHA it was a blessing from above.
Next story is that we had canceled appointments and had nothing to do so we decided to Stop by some potentials. Now we stopped by a potential who we found out gave us the wrong address but knew the guy that was there. He wasn't interested. But before we got to this guy i saw a man and i was like i need to contact him. Ended up not doing it. now after we stopped by the potential we go and talk to this man his name is Jovonnie and he's from El Salvador. So we helped him unload his car and then we taught him a message on the trunk of his car and now were gonna see him this saturday. I have been following my first impression more frequently now. Like Elder Rasband said "First promptings are pure inspiration from heaven. When they confirm or testify to us, we need to recognize them for what they are and never let them slip past. So often, it is the Spirit inspiring us to reach out to someone in need, family and friends in particular. “Thus … the still small voice, which whispereth through and pierceth all things,” points us to opportunities to teach the gospel, to bear testimony of the Restoration and Jesus Christ, to offer support and concern, and to rescue one of God’s precious children." I testify that this is true that we should always follow the first prompting . Now i may not be perfect at it but i can promise that as we do it we will be blessed abundantly .
love you all
-Elder Dalsasso
