Welll...here we are.... another week and we are in November!So for the most exciting and greatest news we had a BAPTISM!! Katie got baptized. Everything went well with her baptism :) and yesterday she was confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! Her confirmation blessing was beautiful, full of rich blessings like a mission and marriage :) Probably one of the most powerful I have heard.
Other than that we had another miracle. We were in the bus, and in came a women. We were talking to someone, and she sat down and asked us where the church was. She told us that she was a less active, and had been baptized as a little girl and wanted to go to church. Well, we asked where she lived and went to go visit her. She has a cute little boy, and is expecting another baby! She also lived with her little sister and her husband. She wants to bring her family to the church. She is so sweet, and we are so excited to teach her family. It is amazing how God works.
Also as a big surprise President Dester came to our zone meeting. At the end he gave a few of his thoughts. He talked a lot about charity, and how we should always love one another, especially our companions and those around us. I love it when President Dester talks. I know this may sound a little crazy, but I would rather listen to him than a general authority. He just always know exactly what to say and how to say it, in a way that I need to hear it and apply it. Almost always I come out of an interview teary eyed because he is so loving and caring and knows what we need to hear. It always amazes me to see someone so in tuned with the Spirit.
We have also been teaching a super sweet family of evangelicals. She is such an inspiration to me, because she read the entire bible in a year, reading 10 chapter a day. Talk about dedication! She always leaves me thinking. Sometimes we just talk about bible sections an doctrine. It is really interesting.
Well I love you all. The gospel is true. We have to move forward one step at a time. Something that hit me in the baptism is a member was giving the welcome for Katie, and she said we will always have trials and difficulties, but at least the gospel makes things a little more manageable so that we can handle things a little better. Remember to Stay in the boat and hold on! as Elder Ballard said last conference.
Have a great week!!!!
