Well hello hello everybody:)
It sounds like a very exciting week for
you guys, and another very exciting week coming up too! I wish I could
be there for all of the excitement.
This week we (again) we're on splits and I went with the same member as
last week to go teach the Catholic woman and her family. The member I
went with is Brother G. and he himself is a convert to the
church. In fact he was studying to be a Catholic priest until he
married a less active member, studied the church for SEVEN years, then
he was baptized. So he offered to go teach the woman. Her daughter is a member who got
baptized when she went to school in Utah... (go figure huh?) with us
which worked out well because we had more lessons than we could handle.
So Brother G. and I taught she and her children about the restoration and
Bro. G. explained why the great apostasy made sense in his eyes. I
shared Amos 8:11 and then shared the Joseph Smith story with them. Bro.
G. gave his testimony about the restored gospel and as we were leaving she was beaming and saying "Now I understand!" So things are going great
here, as far as that is concerned.
Anywho...I hope all is well at home, please keep praying for me. I love you all and miss you all soooo much:)
