September 26, 2016

Hey everyone!

This week was truly miraculous. So I'll get right into it. I got a new companion Elder Sorensen. He and I both felt we could find two people who are ready to be baptized this transfer, (it's his last transfer) so we prayed to find them and have been working to do so. Well if anyone has been on a mission they'd know how hard it is to get people to come to church. By time Sunday rolls around we had one person we knew of coming and that was a miracle in itself. But as we are greeting everyone before sacrament meeting the first investigator I just mentioned comes in and actually came! I shook his hand and he sat
down ready for church. Well after that we have a member come up to us and say the person sitting behind them wants to be baptized. My companion and I look at each other like.......what? So we walk over and meet this guy who's name is josh. He is the fianc√© of a less active member and has been reading and praying about the Book of Mormon, knows it's true, and wants to be baptized. This was too good to be true! But it was true! We taught him his first lesson right after church and he's on track for it! Well the third miracle of the day was a member brought their neighbor to church as well! That's almost unheard of! We met him and then sacrament started and everyone had a fantastic time. They then came to gospel principles and we taught about the Book of Mormon and why it's here. The lesson was so powerful as the spirit testified and the class was PACKED. We ended with elder Hollands testimony of the Book of Mormon and it was icing on the cake. So 2 investigators showing up that we didn't even have to find and wanting to learn more, so dang cool.
