This week was fantastic!!!!! We had snow on Halloween! It was pretty crazy. Welcome to the lake effect, the chilly winters, the snowy tundra of northern Indiana. Thank goodness it hasn't snowed since, just a lot of rain!
What a fantastic week that Sister Tanner and I had in Mishawaka!!! It was awesome! We had several lessons and got to know a lot more of the ward and even committed 3 of our investigators to baptism!!! The 3 investigators we committed to baptism are Tyler, McKenna and Ashlynn Eskridge! They are 14, 13, and 12 years old. They went to church a lot when they were younger. Their grandma is a member and so is their Dad. We committed them to be baptized on November 29th! They are so excited! I love them so much already. They are so sincere in their desire to come closer to God and they are already reading the scriptures with their grandma everyday! They weren't able to come to church last week because a couple of them were sick and the car wouldn't start…. but they will be there this week! The ward just loves them too! I am so excited to see them grow over the next month as they prepare for their baptism!
Dennis quit drinking coffee!!! Which makes us so excited because that means that he is now that much closer to getting baptized. He said that he thought it was going to be a lot harder to give it up then it actually was. He said that the first couple of days were difficult, but now he hardly misses it. He is now praying about when he will be ready to be baptized!
On Saturday, we had a little bit of time, so I took Sister Tanner tracting. She was pretty nervous, but by the end she was very confident in talking to anyone who answered their door! It was fun to watch her change over just two hours of trying something new. I am so grateful that I have learned how to open my mouth and how to testify of what I know to be true. The gospel is so exciting, how could we not share it with EVERYONE!!!!! God knows us all perfectly and He loves us unconditionally. He loves us so much that he sent his son, Jesus Christ to die for us! I know that through Jesus Christ we all can return to live with God again.
Thank you for your love and your support!!!
