This has been such a miracle week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week has been a miracle week. We were able to meet many new people and teach so many lessons. Our district is so unified and amazing. Everyone is working so hard. We were able to baptize the most AMAZING little girl!!!!! She is 10 years old and comes from a part member family. Her name is Julietta. She is such an amazing example for her family. Teaching her has been the greatest blessing. She’s so cute. The day before Julietta’s baptism, her mom asked her who she wanted to baptize her. Julietta is super shy and in the cutest way she asked me to and I was filled with so much joy and love!! She is so sincere and truly thinks about this gospel and how to apply it to her life.
Another miracle! We did divisions and I was with Elder Fred and we were contacting. Our first few were a little rough and nobody gave us the time of day. Then we were so motivated to enter a house so we started contacting much more productively. We contacted this house and I almost made it impossible for the lady to say no, but she said she was very sorry but to pass by her home the next day. Discouraged we didn’t enter her house but still happy by how well the contact went, we asked her if we could bring this message of happiness to anyone she knew and she gave us the direction to her sister-in-laws house. We went to her sister-in-laws house and told her that we sent to her and she invited us in and we had such a spiritual lesson and now her and her husband have a baptismal date as well as the primary contact that we went back to the next day. Now we just have to get them to church!!!!
Transfers are next week and I'm pretty nervous. I don't want to leave this area as it feels like I just got here but it's a good possibility I might be heading somewhere else. We were blessed to be able to teach over 25 lessons this week and we took a member to 18 of them. Spiritual overload!!
It's so amazing! THE MISSION IS SO GREAT!!! The Church is so true!! 1 Nephi 11:17 has changed my mission for the better. We don't always need a reason to follow all the commandments of God. We don't need to know the scriptures in and out and memorize everything. What we do know is that we have a father in heaven that loves us! Thank you for all the support.
