November 18, 2013

Well this week has been crazy! On Thursday I had a companion exchange with one of our zone leaders. It was amazing. I learned a lot of new teaching skills. Then after that there was a baptism on Friday in the church and we showed up early to fill up the font, but I started to feel like I was getting a fever while we where in the church. We waited and we greeted all of the members who showed up and then before I knew it my fever was bad and I was shaking because I was cold (even though it was in the 90s). We missed the baptism and we went straight to the house where I pretty much have spent the last three days. I don't know exactly what I had, but it was nasty. Even though I was sick we went to sacrament meeting, because I wanted to know which of our investigators would make it to church. We have been teaching a lady named Dina. She has been such a good investigator and has always completed her commitments except going to church. We have fasted and prayed that she would go almost every week for the last month. Right as they were about to bless the sacrament, we saw Dina walk in with all of her children. It made me so happy. We really thought that the Lord had giving up on helping her get to church, but it was proof to me that all of our prayers and fasting in this last month haven't been in vain! Oh and the family we are teaching showed up as well. We are hoping to get them baptized in two weeks!

I'm positive that this is Gods work and that He wants us to be happy. He only asks us to be obedient and we can have all of the blessings that we have ever wanted.
