18 months and still loving it!
18 months and still going strong!
A happy yellow wall!
We also went on exchanges with Sister Lindsay!!!! So now that the policy has changed and all 4 sisters proselyte in OUR area, we have been seeing CRAZY miracles and lots of cool people willing to get baptized! Sister Lindsay is a fireball and SO good at following the Spirit.
We reset a baptismal date with Chantelle, she is SO awesome and says she is excited to genuinely repent. Which is good since she told us last Sunday she didn't come to church because she was drunk HA.
Other miracles: we met with a member's less active son, Deng Dixiong. I shared scriptures that came to my mind from the Spirit and he said I helped answer some of his questions. He hasn't come to church in probably 8 years or so I'm guessing, all of his own choice. When he walked into sacrament , EVERYONE'S head turned. I told him welcome and he said "It's because of you!" It's not, it's because of God. He prepares people to come home:)
Our golden platinum all-star investigator Xie Dixiong...he can't get baptized. Without sharing too much personal information, basically him and his wife had to get divorced for legal, financial reasons about 3 years ago. So although they love each other and are still raising a family together, they are not lawfully married. He told us this 2 days before his baptismal interview. Finding out he couldn't get baptized was REALLY hard for him. He owes some serious debt that still might take a long time to pay off, and only once it is paid off can they get remarried. So as of right now...he doesn't want to meet with us, he wants to let his emotions get back in order. He said he will continue to read and pray everyday and repent because he finally knows his Father in Heaven. He says he will continue to prepare for the day when he can finally be baptized. It was heart-breaking, but he says that he trusts in God's plan. So yah. that's that.
We also found a cute lady from the Philippines, Louiela. I told her we had church, and she said she was Christian, she hadn't been to church in so long. We left in the middle of church to go get her and walk up with her, she was SO grateful saying " I just need to worship." She gets 2 hours off work a week, from. She said we were angels and God is a God of miracles:)
Well, this week was awesome. Sister Facer and I are besties. We trained on TEACHING REPENTANCE AND BAPTIZING CONVERTS in zone meeting this past week and now that that is our common focus, everything has just fallen into place for us. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY AND THAT'S ALL.
