3/3/2013..Humility through trials

Indeed it was a great week. :) It was a little harder than the past weeks have been. I feel like I am entering a phase of great spiritual growth but that spiritual growth is also coupled with some pretty good lookin trials. :) This past week we had three investigators drop us in a sense. Two of them don't want to get baptized in March, which is when we had their baptismal dates scheduled. The other one, I'm not so sure about because we haven't been able to talk to but I don't think she will be baptized in March because she feels really pressured and doesn't have a lot of support BUT we only talked to the mom about this so hopefully when we get to talk to her we can at least keep teaching her and having lessons over at her bishop's house. :) it was kinda rough. But, Dad's email really tied into what this week has given me. Sometimes, when you pray for humility and with a desire to grow, Heavenly Father really lets you have the opportunities where that can be possible, AKA the trials and tribulations. :) Overall though, it's ok. :) We are still getting by and we still have another investigator. :) He came to church this past week too! AND we got to watch Prophet of the Restoration with him and he was crying a bunch. Tomorrow, we are gonna teach him the Plan of Salvation too. :) It was kinda funny though because we came over about 30 min before church started and he didn't know how to tie a tie so I got to help him. We tied the tie and got all ready to go and it was such a good experience. It was fast and testimony meeting so that was AWESOME. I really hope he felt the spirit. :) Other than that, Sister Fica is doing SOOOOOO good. :) She is so happy and just has a new light about her. :) Also, the Siler's cabin is coming along quite well. It is really stressing them out but hopefully it will be finished soon. :) We got to help them move out of their rental and now, they are staying with some member's in their ward until their house is done. I cannot wait til they get to move in. It will be such a wonderful relief for them. :) Other than that...... oh! We had Zone Conference! It was a really really wonderful experience. Lots of good trainings, lots of good talks and lots of inspiration. Something is out there, Elder Wootten and I just have to go find it. :) Overall, the week went well. Elder Wootten is doing awesome, learning more and more each day and I'm learning lots from him as well. :)
