This week was amazing!!!! DORIS GOT BAPTIZED!!! She took the plunge ;) Her brother who is 16 years younger than her drove to Franklin with his family all night so he could baptize and confirm her! She said she was pretty sure her brother introduced her to the church so he could publicly "dunk" her- she said it was the perfect little brother's revenge. Hahahah. But on a more spiritual note, the baptism was awesome! I think almost everyone was in tears by the end of it! The spirit was strong- just another testimony to me that this church is true and that Heavenly Father loves all of His children. The spirit is such a sweet confirmation of His love and His care for all of us.
We also found 4 new investigators this week!!! It was pretty exciting! One of them was a complete miracle! We had an appointment scheduled with one of our investigators on Saturday evening and she canceled on us last minute. Sister Wilde was coming with us-- and she was amazing and said that she would go wherever we needed to go- that even though the investigator canceled she was still willing to go out with us! So as we followed through with our backup plans we decided to go and see a potential investigator named BJ that we had met with about 6 weeks ago and hadn’t been able to get into contact with since. We had stopped by her home a couple times earlier in the week and she hadn't been there. BUT SHE WAS HOME!!!! She let us right in. We had left her a copy of the Book of Mormon and invited her to read it after the first time we met with her and taught her about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Come to find out, she was already in the Book of Helaman!!!!! and she wants to come to church :) She will be out of town for a little bit-- but we were so grateful that we were able to get in contact with her again and set up another appointment!!!! We are excited for BJ’s spiritual journey :)
Nothing else to terribly exciting happened this week- funny story though- Sister Bambrough and I totally slept on couches in a kitchen this week on exchanges. How random!
I love you all!!! Thank you for your support!
