This past week was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
Miracle #1- I'm not sure if I mentioned this in a previous email but one of our investigators, the Brown's youngest daughter, was not able to be baptized because her father said no BUT after a very determined Brother Brown whittling away at him, she will be baptized this coming Saturday at 6! We have a lesson with the family this evening and her birth father is going to be there to "see what it is all about." I'm SO excited!
Miracle #2- Our other investigators are doing SO good! The ward support has been amazing and they have been coffee and smoke free for quite some time!! They will be baptized on November 29th at 1 o clock! On top of that, Thanksgiving is going to be amazing! :) Also, if I didn't already mention is before, Brother and Sister Axline are going to be sealed this coming December 2nd at 3:30! Elder Abbott and I get to go!
Miracle #3- Our zone is doing SO AMAZING! We even got a call from our Mission President this morning and we talked about the outstanding work that the zone is doing! We are on track to baptize 18 INCREDIBLE individuals this month and many more people will have the opportunity to enter into the fold of the good shepherd this coming month! :)
Miracle #4- SNOW! It has been snowing SO much! :) Also, the other night, we acquired many boxes of raspberries and took them to our investigator's houses and gave them out to random people. It was FANTASTIC! ON top of that, we had our Missionary Leadership Counsel with President and Sister Brinkerhoff, the Assistants, and Elder Martino of the Quorum of 70! It was phenomenal! I learned more fully that if we have the right vision and the right motivation, nothing can stop us. All it takes is an attitude change and we WILL be able to get to where we want to go! We also got to have our Zone Training which was a phenomenal experience! :) These missionaries are incredible!!!
Miracle #5- I got to go on exchanges in the Spanish Branch with Elder Ibarra! We got to teach an amazing family in English and the I got to be part of a lesson in all Spanish! As you can expect, I didn't say much! Haha! Elder Ibarra would ask me questions, I would answer and he would translate though! That was pretty cool!
Overall, it was an amazing, snowy, up and down, roller coaster of pure amazingness kind of week! I love you all! Be safe and have a fantastic week before Thanksgiving! :)
