Week 40: 2 Upcoming Baptisms!

March 30, 2015

The work this past week has been great! I having been having such a great time and am hoping that I'm at least a little bit different by the time I get home. Sometimes it is hard to notice changes in myself as time passes, but I feel as if I have been greatly blessed especially when serving in a place like Logandale. A lot of Elders and Sisters come here and struggle, but we have been working like crazy!

Dan and Pat are ready to go for their baptism this weekend! They are super-excited and I feel as if this baptism will be one of the more memorable baptisms for the Overton 4th ward in a long time.

We had a cool experience with one of our investigators this past week. She hasn't progressed very much over the past few months. She has read parts of the Book of Mormon and has done a little bit of praying, but has never gone to church. About 5 weeks ago, I brought up the idea of a guest-services Sunday (like back home in the Red Bridge ward to teach basic principles of the Gospel) in ward council. Our bishop loved the idea and decided to have that this past Sunday. We had a lesson with our investigator on Saturday night in which we completely threw out the lesson we planned and taught by the Spirit. At the end of the lesson, I mentioned something to the effect of, "I know I feel the Spirit right now, I hope you can too." And she said that did feel something. Well, our bishop walked up to us before sacrament meeting and told us that she showed up! Lo and behold, she actually came to church. And the planned sacrament meeting was the guest-services meeting, which included talks on faith, repentance, baptism, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. All those little things led up to her coming to church yesterday. Heavenly Father is definitely in the details of His work!
Love you all! Have a great week! Make sure to write!
