Semana ochenta y ocho!

Week 88 of 101 (5/18-5/24) 


Today was super great! Actually the whole week was awesome!

On Tuesday, we had a super awesome experience. We were teaching someone and we invited him to be baptized on the 13th of June. He agreed and said he wanted to "just get it done." Then he gave a bunch of referrals for a bunch of different people that we could go visit.

Wednesday was awesome. Elder Mendenhall told us that President Hinze wanted to Skype us before zone meeting. We all showed up early, a little bit nervous because we didn't know what it was all about. When everyone was there, we messaged him and he called us. Turns out he was just calling to congratulate us for our week. We had the most progressing investigators, new investigators and invitations to baptism in the whole mission, by a lot. He then had Elder Mendenhall take us all out to eat pizza after zone meeting.

In zone meeting we talked about hastening the work. We did a speed cup stacking tournament. Turns out that one of the sisters in our zone is a national speed stacking champion. We talked about how they had to be quick but they had to do it correctly and neatly in order to succeed. We talked about hastening but not being hasty.

There were a lot other cool experiences we had, which I don't have time to write about. But I would like to talk about the baptisms today! Today three people got baptized in the branch. It was incredible. One of the most incredible parts was that Lorretta, our investigators, walked 3 miles from Roaring Creek to the chapel in order to get baptized. Talk about faith! It has been such an incredible to teach her and see her faith. 

The Gospel makes us happy. So live it!
