BAPTISM! BUSY BUSY BUSY J
It was a great week! We had a baptism on Saturday for Gretchen! She is amazing and was so prepared. The spirit was so strong. Her countenance was beautiful and she is so full of light!
This past week we have been doing service for a woman we are teaching, Kamala. She is older and has horses and chickens, she needed some help. So we have been going over twice a day and feed her horse and chickens and scoop some manure! Ha it’s been good because it’s creating a great bond and friendship with her. We are only doing it for a week but it has been fun!
We also had another great opportunity to do service this week. We were able to go to
St George and help out at a Big Halloween Carnival. It was fun to be around a lot of other missionaries and meet a lot of people. It’s fun/funny because everyone here loves missionaries!
On Wednesday went on exchanges with other missionaries and we spent the day in Parowan. The missionary work is struggling in Parowan so we did lots of walking and meeting members to help meet people. The whole day it was raining and freezing. But we met some really great people! It was a fun day to be on exchanges!
We have been really busy. We go on splits (taking members with us to help teach) a lot because we have too many appointments to do by ourselves...which is good! We barely have time to contact all of the referrals we have and find new people to teach
But, I have seen that when we are obedient and when we work hard...miracles happen! We have had two new investigators this week that have literally fallen into our lap! It was truly a miracle! We were asked to speak in a church on Sunday. In my talk I focused a lot on how we can sometimes feel like we are in darkness but the Savior is the light. And while I was talking, this woman in the congregation with tattoos and dreadlocks was staring at me and listening intently to my talk. Afterwards, she told me how much she appreciated my talk. She has been very less active in church in her life and she wants to change. We will start teaching her this week! Miracle!
The Savior and his teaching are truly that light that will help us out of darkness. Just as when Joseph Smith was engulfed in darkness while praying, he saw a pillar of light exactly over his head. The light of the Savior dispelled the darkness that Joseph was in. Christ can do the same thing for us when we are in "darkness". The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so true! And I love my job!
