Hello everyone. I hope you all had a good week. This week I am short on time so I will try to focus on the best parts of the week.
So last Tuesday we were teaching and 3 people came out of the woodwork that are ready to be baptized next week. We were planning on 1 but now 4 are ready, it was truly a miracle that we are thankful for. We were leaving some investigators and it was dark and we were far away and were going to have to hike, but then a tricycle came at just the right moment. The Lord provides.
we were on fire, we taught a ton! We had great lessons. We had a cool experience of being guided to the right place. We were looking for an investigators house and didn't know where it was and walked past this street then all of a sudden I stopped and was like,” lets go down this street” and it was right where he lived, so cool. We found this great family but in simple words: sometimes you get punted just because the Lord needs to send you somewhere else. Comparing that to regular life, sometimes things don't work out because the Lord has a bigger and better plan for you. Endure to the end.
we had this investigator start reading the Book of Mormon for the first time and it makes her fight less with her husband and is happier when those words are running through her head. The book of Mormon is powerful.
we met someone named Alma and found a ton of investigators. It was a great day.
we worked in our kabahays area in the morning. Me and elder Forsberg taught this fire lesson to a less active about repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I felt the spirit so strong and was so happy to be able to help her understand better. Such a happy lesson. We then had a baptism in the afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was awesome. She was the daughter of a member that we baptized in June. So happy to see her follow her mom. It’s been great teaching her and I can truly see the change in her. The ocean was warm and the rain was pouring and it stopped when we went out to baptize. The same thing happened at her mom’s baptism. There were floods everywhere so I had to wear my crocs to work. It was fun.
that less active we taught came to church!!!!! (less active in our kabahays area). We were so happy and she was welcomed by the members. We need to look around and find the people we can bring back. I confirmed the person that was baptized , it was very spiritual. Confirming is just as cool as baptizing. The spirit is so strong in Mamburao during sacrament, my favorite part. It was a great week, and looking forward to another great week.
