Week 34, Happy 20th Birthday to Me! New Senior Couple Are Pure AWESOME and Investigator's Daughter Knows She is Important to God
I am going to be turning 20 this week.... wait what? It is crazy how time is just flying by and what is happening. This week has been one crazy experience after another and we have had lots of people to teach and try to help come closer to their Heavenly Father. We have an investigator and her daughter that are very positive and have actually agreed to be baptized but we do not have a date for them this week. The coolest thing was having the daughter sit in on a lesson and just have the answers to everything and she told us that her biggest wish is to come closer to God because she knows that He exists and has knows for awhile. She is only 14 but knows so much about her relationship with God it is absolutely incredible to see! She is probably the investigator that knows the most and she is by far the youngest one we have. It has been incredible to watch her faith and know she knows where she stands. That was a cool lesson. We have another with Januari who talked about how he wants to be baptized but to make sure that it is the right thing to do for him and something that he is going to stick with and even share with people after he is baptized. He is a fantastic example to me about how we should act as members of the church and that he knows how to do that even without being a member yet. We have the other investigator Eva who has a baptismal date and is really progressing but was not able to come to church last sunday so we will be getting her there this sunday.
We have had lots of people to teach and we actually had about 25 lessons last week and we are seeing the area just start to move which has been great because it took it awhile to get off of its feet. We just hope that we can keep it moving forward because the members need it to continue. But the Lords hand continues to be here! We had 3 investigators last week that we havent been able to get ahold of for one reason or another and we were able to see them this week as a direct result of us going to a lesson and canceling and them walking right outside the building! 3 times this week and I know that it wasnt just cooincindence that we had a lesson in that building and were canceled on that these people were able to talk to us and actually set up different appointments for them as well.
The pictures were from north of the island where we went on a little adventure with our new senior couple who are pure awesome.
