Sorry I’m late! Some crazy stuff going on today! But I’m good!
Stuff going on this week… KATHY’S BAPTISM!!! It was so awesome to
see her finally enter the waters of baptism. We had a great showing
from the ward. There was so many people, we had to move the talks and
stuff to the chapel! It was awesome! And the Opoku family was able to
attend, and they really liked it. Kathy was baptized by her son Mike,
who is a recent convert. It was very touching, and the Spirit was so
strong. If you ever have the chance to attend a convert baptism, I
HIGHLY recommend it. The Spirit is always strong, and it’s amazing to
see how far some of these people come. Kathy 6 weeks ago and Kathy now
are completely different people. Not that she’s changed as a person,
but she is so much happier now. It was an awesome experience.
Our next project we’re working on, (Not really a project, just an
investigator we’re trying really hard to get to church and closer to
the waters of baptism!), is a guy named Norman. Not sure if I’ve
talked about him before, but he’s a 26 year old guy who’s super sweet.
Just like me, he freaking loves video games. Yeah, you could say we
have a lot to talk about. Anyways, we’ve had some great lessons with
him, he just won’t come to church! I don’t know what his problem is,
but every time we invite him, “something comes up.” We’re working very
hard this transfer on getting ALL of our investigators to church, and
Mr.Norman-gonna-be-a-Mormon is numero uno on this list.
Also, Jordan is still on date for the 28th of this month, and we had
our first meeting with him this weekend after a two week hiatus. He
said he’s been thinking about his baptism every day, but why haven’t
we been meeting then?! We’re making really sure that he’s 100%
committed to this, there’s no way we’re baptizing him if he ain’t
ready. Also something else we’re working on is helping our
investigators develop testimonies for themselves, and not just
piggybacking their missionaries.
I’m doing great, the work is good. If anyone wants to hang out after
