Week 23

Hello, hello!!
How are things going? I love and miss you all tons!
So this email is going to be kinda short... Sorry! But I really want to tell you about a cool experience that we had this week.
The other day we were out contacting near National Theater. This was odd because we haven't needed to contact for a while because we have so many teaches all the time. But anyways, we found this Norwegian girl who wanted to hear a little bit more about the Church, so we sat down on a bench and gave her a 5 minute teach about the Restoration. Afterwards, we gave her the Book of Mormon and let her read the promise in Moroni 10:4-5. As she read it, she stopped right in the middle and told us an experience that she had just had. About a week ago, a random man came up to her and asked her if she believed in Jesus Christ. She told him that she was raised as a Catholic and that she knew he existed. Then, he just walked away. Afterwards, she felt really bad because she does believe in Christ, and she should stand up for that. well a few days later, the same guys came up to her and asked the same question. This time, she said yes. Well 2 days later, she was feeling really lost and she decided to type a letter to God. She asked him to give her direction and show her the truth... 3 days later she met us on the street. So when she read the promise that said "if ye shall ask with a csincere heart, with dreal intent, having efaith in Christ, he will fmanifest the gtruth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." Having Faith in Jesus Christ. It was when she read that, that she knew we were sharing something important and that God had placed us on the same path. She took the Book of Mormon home and began reading and we are going to meet with her again on Tuesday.
It is experiences like these that make me LOVE being a missionary. I have never felt anything like this! It is incredible being able to be led like this to help those people who God has prepared. There is a scripture that talks about how angels are preparing people to hear the gospel and it is so true! I love this work!!!
I love you all so much and I hope things are going well! Miss you tons. Have a great week!!!
Lots and lots of love,
Sister Jessica Taylor
