80 degrees and Sunny
This week's shout out goes out to the weather here. Holy cow.
WE HAVE A BAPTISMAL DATEEEEEEE
So our investigator Kim, is more wonderful than anything. We taught her the obedience, law of chastity, and the word of wisdom, in 10 minutes. And get this, she already felt prompted to keep it 5 weeks ago. And it gets better because she testifies of the blessings of it to US. She told ME why to keep those laws. It was so good. But it gets even better because this happened:
Sis U: "So did you pray about a date?"
Kim: "Yeah I did actually, and the numbers 10 and 12 came to mind..."
Me: "NO WAY 12 CAME TO OUR MIND TOO"
Kim: "AHHH THE SPIRIT IS SO COOL"
It was the best.
I've decided to keep these things short because I don't have a ton of time... and you probably don't either. Short, powerful statements :)
We finished talking to this lady on her porch when this happens:
Lady: Hey! Are you mormons?
Us: Yeah, how are you?
Her: I'm good! My sister is learning about the Mormons! I don't know where she's going, but she likes it!
Us: No way! What's her name?
Us: We are totally the ones teaching her! Woah! You should come to church with her sometime!
Her: I do!
Bob- turns out he's been drinking... a TON of concerns we need to resolve. And we definitely need to reteach the lessons over again...
Karen- she's doing awesome! She loves us, we just need to set up a time to meet with her...
Kelani- she came to church! She didn't seem very happy, but once she has friends, I'm sure it'll be awesome and she will love it :)
Warren- well. Let's just say that there's a fair amount of things we are struggling with here, first of all being him letting us speak
Audrey- sweetest lady. She has Alzheimer's, so we are going to gauge how much she can remember and see. We are weeding her gardenon Thursday :)
We went out for a lesson with one of our members, and she gave a really awesome analogy. She compared our life to a GPS. We tend to make a lot of wrong turns and go down unknown paths. But despite our mistakes, God knows the ultimate path. He knows that even though we take a wrong turn, we can still make it back. Life is full of "Recalculating" but there is always a way back. It might take a little longer, but we will still make it where we need to be.
Love you all :)
