So this week was sooo great!! We have 5 people on date to be baptized within the next couple months. It is amazing Sister Anderson and I just started to be bold and talk about baptism and church more with those that we were teaching. (we decided this at the beginning of our transfer together) and we have definitely seen the fruit of those labors 5 on date and many new investigators attending church. :) It has really been amazing! :)
|RECORD BREAKING WINTER!|
That night we had exchanges with the Carthage Sisters. I was with Sister Folkman, she is such a sweetheart and we were able to see so many people! We were just running! One of my favorites was Norma. She is a new investigator that I found when I was with Sister Walker on her last night as a missionary but I was able to pick her up as an investigator with Sister Folkman. She is awesome, Norma has a deep rooted faith in the Bible but we were able to help her understand this gospel and the Book of Mormon more and it just helped me realize. I know my Savior Jesus Christ and the doctrine of Christ, the way he wants us to live, so much better than I did before and it is because I have done a deeper study of the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it truly answers the questions of the soul and helps prepare us to receive all the blessings that God wants to offer us. I didn't get to read the Book of Mormon in studies one day this week and man.. poor Sis. Anderson, I was just a mess I was so emotionally drained and I was irritable and I realized... it's because of that. I know that there is a power in the Book of Mormon and that it is because it is the true word of God. I love it so much!
Then we ran around and we saw Prince.. He is such a strong kid. I don't know how he stays so active in the situation that he is in. but I am really proud of him! :) I love him a lot and I am sure when I get home I will be calling and checking up on him all the time! :) Then we were able to see Aida and her daughter Jaidan.. Jaidan got a Book of Mormon from us a week ago and she has read all the way to Ether 5 in that week... SHE LOVES IT!! She is soooo golden! She came with us to a baptism and a dinner and conference on Saturday and it was so good to have her there and then Aida met us up there later because she worked a 12 hour day. They are so committed to the gospel, they are constantly busy and yet they still are making such an effort to come to church and read and pray to know if it is true. I LOVE this family so much and I am so grateful that we are able to teach them :) I feel very honored to be able to be a part of their conversion! :)
Love you all!! have a great week!!!
