"I'm loving my mission"

first and foremost i would like to give a shout out to my 2 sisters,  janelle and kristine. i hope you have a good birthday!
Kristine is in the beige blouse in the back row 
and Janelle is in the flowered blouse in the front row.  

this was a super good week for us. we saw a lot of good things happen. first off with our investigator.... we were only able to teach him once but the lesson that we did have went really well. he is really interested in the spirit world. we spent about an hour and a half talking about it. both of his parents died so he is really concerned about where they are. he told us that the day before the lesson he was thinking about the church and everything and he said that he wants to get baptized. he has gone more than a week and a half without drinking tea and is still going strong. his date to get baptized is the 10 of april, but we want to change it to the 3rd and do it in between the sessions of conference.  we have to get special permission from the stake president to do it so we are going to have to talk to him this week. things are going well with him. we just need to help him along the way.

1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

the family from haiti is doing really well.  we weren’t able to teach them a real lesson but we saw them almost everyday this week. we helped him do a resume and as we were doing it he told us that he literally doesn’t have any money to buy food for him and his wife. let alone for the 3 kids that he has in haiti. when we left we called the bishop to see what he could do and he said that he would work on it. 3 hours later he asked us if we could pick him up and bring him to the church. at the church the bishop called him into his office and he told us and the bishop his story. it is honestly the saddest story i have heard in my life. there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. he talked about how hard life is in haiti and how he wants his kids with him and everything like that. afterwards the bishop brought him out to his car and his car was FULLLLLL of food that the bishop had picked up from families. he and his wife were soooo grateful. it was honestly like a story you would read in the ensign. they are honestly some of the most humble people i have met in my life.

plus yesterday our 3 investors all went to church. we couldn’t be more happy.

i honestly want to stay in this sector. i never thought i would ever want to stay in a sector for 5 changes but we are finally finding success and i love the people here. but i know that i’m going to leave so i just have to prepare myself for that.

the mission is going really well right now. i’m loving it. i am learning so much right now and i wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. the church is true.

  1. What a great story! And what an exemplary model of the calling of a bishop in our church. How wise of you to call the bishop right away. How wonderful was his response. It is what Jesus asks us to do.
