See His Hand

This week was incredible. 
We were praying for miracles and they came in abundance. On Wednesday we were looking for a less active member, and I thought I knew where she lived. So we walked pretty far to find her--- only to realize that I took us to a different less-active member's house. As we were heading back to the main part of our area we decided to pass by the house of a family that got baptized about six months ago. We knocked on the door and they answered and told us to come in. That's when we met Soledad and Luis, grandma and uncle of the little kid converts. They had recently came to live with their daughter and her kids. 
They told us that they felt the Lord was calling them to come to Puebla 
and that they are so willing to act on whatever He tells them
We invited them to be baptized and they said yes right away. 
Actually, Soledad said that she had been at the point of being baptized for many years, but it never felt right. Yesterday in church, THEIR VERY FIRST TIME ATTENDING, Luis went up to the pulpit and gave his testimony that he knows the Lord guides us through the Spirit. Then when we went to teach them Soledad told us that 
she dreamed the night before we met her 
that two women in black dresses visited her (and I was wearing black). 
I have NEVER in my whole mission been in a circumstance so obviously directed by Heavenly Father. It is such a blessing to see His hand in the lives of those that are seeking Him. It shows that He calls us so many times, but we are the ones that have to act on what we feel. Miracles exist. Never again in my life can I deny that.

"...the Lord did pour out his Spirit on all the face of the land to prepare the minds of the children 
of men, or to prepare their hearts to receive the word which should be taught among them..." (Alma 16:16, The Book of Mormon)
