Dear Family & Friends,
In 2 Nephi 2:11 it says, "For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things." And we definitely saw that this week in our work. Satan works as hard as he can to stop something good from happening. Specifically with one of our investigators Kimberly, who was supposed to be baptized this Saturday. Unfortunately we are going to have to move it back a little bit. Hopefully we can get her back on track soon. It stinks to see someone that was so close take a few steps back. We know she will be baptized soon though.
We had some really cool things happen this week too. We ended up having 4 investigators come to church with us! It was awesome to see how the ward welcomed them and made them feel at home. They all had a good experience and hopefully will continue to come to church. We have a great teaching pool right now but we are really trying to find a family that is prepared to accept the gospel. So Elder Ross and I are trying to think of some outside of the box on finding ideas. We were brainstorming with some of the other missionaries to maybe try something new and see if it works. We came up with an idea to do a "free lemonade" stand and set up a table with copies of the Book of Mormon and pamphlets. So we are going to try it out here in the next couple weeks. We'll see what happens hah.
I swear I hit a new month mark every week. This week I hit 10 months! It's weird that I'm getting really closer and closer to hitting a year. I still feel like a young missionary haha. I guess not. It's all good though.
That's about it for the past week. Still loving this work and enjoying every second I have out here. It's been such a big blessing in my life. Even though there are ups and downs it's the most amazing feeling to see someone else's life change for the better.
Love you all!!
