Please pray that Morgan's visa gets approved soon!
AND.... I'VE BEEN OUT FOR THREE MONTHS!
This week, because of the emergency transfer, we were in a tri-companionship... and WE GOT TO USE A CAR! it was so so great! The sister we were with this week, is named sister alexander. We were super busy and had a number of super cool experiences this past week.
sister A and her companion had been working with this one man named rick who has been investigating the church for the past 3 years. he has a bit of a drinking problem so he would never committ to baptism... but sister fairbanks and i had a bit of the magic touch this last week. so in the lesson we were talking about the significance of having faith and how faith is a principle of action. We then used that to segway into a more open discussion about baptism, and guess what?! Good Ol' Rick committed to be baptized on november 25!!!! YAHOOOOO. The next day we had a similar experience with Fran, who for the past few months has profusely refused to be baptized... well last week when we asked her to prepare for baptism, she miraculously said yes and committed to a date. it was GREAT! what else....we've had a couple set backs with a few of our investigators this week but we are going to keep pushing forward.
due to the fact that i didn't ride a bike this week, I don't have any near death experiences. yipee!
Favorite scripture this week:
"For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man seeth why doth he yet hope for"(Romans 8:24).
Keep on HOPING AND BEING AWESOME!
