This week has been really good. Mostly because of the baptism we had this week, but there were are few other things like Halloween night. Last Monday was p-day so we did our regular p-day stuff like shop and email and clean. We also played Monopoly where I dominated, however today I just got second place. We also had to stay indoors that night and to a deep clean and trash all the junk that was not needed, so we did. We decided to knock on a few doors the next day and ran into a guy that was open to talking with us. So we shared the Hallelujah video and he liked it. And then! We were invited in and offered water and we taught the restoration. He is about 20 and wants to be a professor of William Shakespeare. He asked clarifying questions and everything. So we are meeting with him tomorrow and seeing how he is doing and seeing if he read the Book of Mormon.
We knocked into another potential investigator who really really liked the Hallelujah video. She was mmhm-ing in agreement and saying 'amen' during the whole video so she said we could send the sisters over. This was Wednesday when we found her, the Sisters went over Friday and we have heard that the lesson went really well. The sisters have another appointment with her Tuesday as well. The baptism was awesome, her dad baptized her and her uncle came with his wife and baby, there was also a very large portion of the ward that showed up. And on Sunday we did her confirmation. I don't have pictures of that yet, but I will get it to you soon. The pictures were taken on a non apple phone so they could not airdrop them to us. President Dixon recently shared in an email one of my favorite scripture stories, we actually
talked about it at the MTC. The story is found in 2 Kings 6. In this chapter the Syrian army came
by night with horses, and chariots, and a great host: and compassed the city of the Israelites about and when the servant of Elisha the prophet awoke and saw that the Syrian army had the city surrounded he
was alarmed and said, “Alas, my master! How shall we do?" Elisha calmly answers, “Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” Elisha then prays to the Lord saying "Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha". Cool! Does that not kind of remind you of Lord of the Rings?
I wish that that could happen to me. I also wish that I could see the devil's army as well, but that is beside the point. Also, If the veil were to be parted today we would see a great host of angels that are
on our side helping us with the battle as well as the spirits of those who passed on and are waiting for their temple ordinances.
It is odd to think that by the time I Skype you guys two of you will be married.
Also, for all you Christmas nazis: I am currently having cocoa in a snowman mug and that guy I mentioned earlier was wearing snowman socks, this would have been on November 1st. I can't wait for Christmas. Thanksgiving is just stomach prep for Christmas dinner and all the chocolate you will eat. And the day you get ready for Christmas.
Merry Christmas, ❄️⛄️🎁🔔
