Hey hey hey! This week was great! Very very busy! I am grateful its preparation day because we finally get to breath!
Well Mary Clarie is doing great! Shes still super unsure about baptism and I dont think she watched conference so we probably have to push her date back. But shes really been pondering and praying about it so that's great!
We also had some miracles while tracting this week which we so neat! First we found a man named George and he knows everything about the Mormons. He has taken lessons millions of times. And his wife was a Mormon and they had the missionaries over all the time until she passed away. He always wanted to get baptized but never did because he is afraid of the water. But he said that his daughters are going to do his work for him in the temple as soon as they can. So we might start working with him to see if he will budge at all but I think we are going to have the senior couple visit him as well. He is awesome!
We also tracted a couple weeks ago into this lady named Cynthia and she said we could come back later and teach her more. So we came back and it turns out shes actually already a member of the church and that she just kinda slipped through the cracks. She said she had some doctrine concerns but she would love to meet with us to try to figure things out and maybe return to church. So that was pretty amazing that we were able to find her.
Debbie our investigator is also doing wonderfully. She has been reading the Book of Mormon every day and praying about her work situation. She wants to be baptized so bad! And plus I swear she already seems like shes a member so that's fun.
We saw Patty this week as well. Its been a while since we have been able to have a lesson with her because she is always leaving when we get to her house, but she talked to us about her step-son Maurez (who we are also teaching) and she says there has been a major change in him. She said she had been working on him for years but he never would listen to her. But as soon as we started to teach him, he made dramatic life changes and is always reading the Book of Mormon and Bible when she sees him. Cool stuff! He has been so busy though so he hasn't been able to meet with us recently. But back to Patty, now she's way more interested herself in learning.
Saw Anna this week and she is doing great! We taught her the Word of Wisdom this week and she was all about it! She is progressing a ton and she continues to have a strong desire to be baptized. All good things!
Takacs are also doing wonderfully and really fitting into the ward. I can't remember if I mentioned this last week, but Sean bore his testimony in sacrament meeting and it was great :)
We also have been working with Dasha, I think I told yall about her. We lost contact with her but we stopped by KFC where she works and were able to get talking to her again. She's been reading the Book of Mormon ever since we met her and she loves it.
Lets see, we also met a lady named Martha and her daughter Jenae and they are pretty great. They also keep referring us to all their friends so thats been helping us find more people to teach.
There are a bunch more people we found this week that were pretty awesome but I am drawing a blank so next week I will update y'all on any of them progressing or actually interested.
Well, that was my time in the area. Sites was crazy! We have been taking lots and lots and lots of tours but it's been really fun. I love giving tours! We didnt get to talk to many of our online investigators but we did talk to Jillian. Shes doing great! But she ended up having to move her baptism date to May 21st.
So yup, thats been my week! We are keeping busy which makes me happy! General Conference was a wonderful way to end the week and I loved it sooooo much! I just want to watch it over again! Cant wait until that Ensign comes out :)
Well, the church is true! And I am sooo grateful for a prophet on the earth today and all our other church leaders!
Love you family!!!!!
