Well first off thats a huge bummer that Gus died! he was the best dog!
he helped me a lot when we first got him. Goodbye Gus! Its good to
hear that everyone is doing good though.
Its been another great week out here in Apowa. we had some amazing
experiences this week and i want to share a few of them with you. We
have an investigator, Brother Redeemer, who we have been working with
for a little while now. We have taught him most of the lessons and he
has received them very well, he has kept all of his commitments except
for coming to church. Although he has only committed to that once.
This week i think he was finally backed up against the wall of faith.
We read Matthew 6 with him and spoke to him about the importance of
prayer. He really loved the lesson but at the end he was very quiet.
We asked him what he was thinking about and he said "i love what we
just learned.....and it is in direct opposition to what we do in my
church." We committed him to pray about it and we are very anxious to
see what he decides. He is finally realize he can no longer sit on the
fence he either has to commit and come or he has to kick against the
pricks. We are praying for him.
This week we also had a wonderful baptism. Her name is sister Ruth,
she is 12 years old and is very smart. Her Grandparents are taking
care of her and she has been coming to church for 3 years now. she
should have been baptized long ago but for one reason or another she
was not. It was great to be able to work with her and to help her
understand the gospel better. When it was time for the ordinance she
was so excited. Another great aspect of her baptism was that one of
our recent converts (Enoch) performed the baptism. It was a growing
experience for everyone.
On tuesday i woke up and i was just tired!!! just totally and utterly
drained, even though i got a full sleep i had no steam. i woke up and
studied and did my best to stay awake. then we went out proselyting.
honestly i dont know how i did it but we made it through the whole day
and it was a busy one. the only explanation i have for the strength i
seemed to pull from places beyond me was the sustaining hand of
Heavenly Father. he helped me make it through just like he always
does. Heavenly Father is always mindful of us.
Everything else that happened this week was pretty standard but all in
all it was great! . i hope you all have a great week!!! i love you!!
