This week has been truly wonderful!
and this week it got up to 110 degrees!
K left for Hawaii this week and she got her temple recommend before she left! So she is going to go do baptisms for the dead in the Hawaii temple! We are so excited for her! She gets back in July and I don't know if I am still going to be here or not so before she left she told us how grateful she is for us and how the gospel has truly changed her life. (I am trying to convince K and my companion Sister M to transfer to BYU-I so we can room together next year, she really liked that idea so we'll see!)
Oh my goodness, her sister J*, is amazing. She accepted a baptism date for June 14th! and she came to church yesterday and wants to go to girls camp now too! On Wednesday when we met with J* her sister V* joined us. V* has been meeting with Jehovah witnesses and wasn't sure if it was the right path for her, she saw the way that J* and K* felt after we met with them so she wanted to check it out. At the end of the lesson about the plan of salvation V said she already noticed a difference and wants to continue meeting with us! And THEN on Friday, we met with J and V again, and guess what? their other sister L and 2 cousins joined in! It was a powerful lesson about the Restoration and after reciting the first vision V said she knows it's true because she just felt it and felt peace while we were sharing Joseph's Smith experience. It was so cool! The spirit was so strong and we invited V* to be baptized and she accepted! We are Uniting families one sister at a time. Haha we told K* that when she gets back from Hawaii her whole family are going to be members!
So that was super cool. ALSO- the 9 year old boy, AD* was baptized on Saturday! It was a really sweet baptism and the spirit was definitely there. It was cool because A*'s family is less active and we are hoping that his baptism helps them become active again! They all came to church on Sunday so that was cool! And the dad is not a member either, and at least he came to the baptism. There really is a special spirit at baptisms. And A was super excited to make that promise with God.
I wish I could just take a picture of my journal and send it every week! There are so many amazing, wonderful, crazy, weird, fun, interesting and unique things that happen. I do love this work though, and I love Jesus Christ so much and I love this Gospel. Thanks for all the Support!
