That is so cool to hear about that sister who conquered her fears and got baptized. I am so happy for her and all the work she will do in Salem, OR for her fellow brothers and sisters! Can't wait to meet her!
Not gonna lie: this week has been rough! Taking over an area after one transfer is not the easiest thing in the world, but I have definitely been kept on my toes!! But it will get better. (It has to!!!)
During transfers on Wednesday, I was left at the transfer point in Steven's Point for 4 hours with four elders...alone...luckily I already knew them all or it would have been very awkward. It is so weird not having a comp. for that long! We may or may not have made some videos...It made the time go by fast. I was saved when the Steven's Point sisters came and got me for lunch, we could only snack on Elder Draper's candy stash for so long.
But Sister King is
so epic it is ridiculous!! She will do so many miracles here, I can feel it!
|The stash we snacked |
on for like 4 hours.
|Elder Vang being Asian.|
She’s in the New Era.
My comp is famous!!!
Although we have received no solid referrals yet this week, we have been able to meet many people and find new investigators at the homes of those in our ward who don't live there anymore :) Two new ward missionaries, the Hoens, have been called and they are phenomenal! Always willing to help and fellowship!
Sadly, two of our new investigators who had a lot of promise, Joe Marie being one of them, dropped us and we have had to push back Gloria's date because she has had a hectic work schedule and we lost all contact for a few days :( But she will get baptized!!
We invited a family to be baptized! They are willing to read the Book of Mormon to know it is true and we hope to get the Rickert’s in there to start fellowshipping them soon!
Kelly wants to work towards baptism once more, but she is worried she can't kick her smoking habit. She has expressed her desire for a priesthood blessing so she will be receiving one this Saturday.
Thank you for the many people you have helped to come into the gospel. I am so excited that you will be able to be my comp. in 5 months...AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for that scripture, I am going to have to mark that one up :)
