This week we had a pretty good week once again. Things are just kind of rolling and rolling. Time is just going toooooo fast! I feel like I write you all every 3 days!
So we had been teaching this girl whose dad is a LA member and we hadn't really been able to set a baptismal date with her because there house is crazy when we teach and stuff and she really hadn't felt the spirit. But on Wednesday we went on a temple tour with her and her friend. It was gr-r-r-r-r-eat! We set a baptismal date with her and her friend also wanted to be baptized, but we first have to talk to her parents. It was a good experience for them.
We also set a baptismal date with a Part-Member guy this week. He is like 23 from Mexico. His only real problem is soccer. He works 6 days a week and on Sunday he likes to play soccer. So he doesn't go to church all the time. So we have to give him the ultimatum... Soccer or an Eternal Family... We will see what he picks. I wish people could just see the blessings that the gospel brings! But faith precedes the miracles.
We have a baptism scheduled this Sunday. He just has to get a new job. But he is a citizen, has a car, speaks English and Spanish and some Portuguese, so it should be too hard. But he is great. He is 18 and wants to serve a mission! He is a miracle.
We have been working hard and trying to find those people who are "connected" to the church. And get them baptized. We are hoping for 4 baptisms in December. That is our goal that we set. We prayed for what the Lord wanted us to achieve and 4 came to my mind, I've never baptized more than 1 in a month, but we can do it!
We also saw a miracle with a member's dad who is not a member who came to visit him for a while. We taught him a lesson and he drove us home and says he sees something different in our church. He will be here until January and we are going on a temple tour with him this Wednesday. Baptism on vacation? That would be awesome!
Well things are going great here! Loving life...
