Lindsay - September 21, 2015

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Here are the highlights from my week! So on Wednesday, we had an awesome district meeting on temples. Our district leader is awesome! He had us all bear testimonies about the temple. It was such a powerful and spirit filled meeting! 

We met with one of our recent converts named Taylor. She is the sweetest girl! We talked about the Atonement which was so powerful. Her testimony of the gospel is so strong, and she is scared to share it publicly, but we have been encouraging her to bear it in Relief Society, or by just being an example to others! Because your actions do testify of the things you believe in! 

We also had another lesson with our investigator Ria. We are trying so hard to set a baptismal date for her! She still wants to know more about Joseph Smith so that she can gain a better understanding of him and know that he is a true prophet. We know that she is also very nervous about this decision because it is a life changing event for sure! So we are trying our hardest to set a date that she can work towards. So she is out of town for a week or two, so we hope she will receive some inspiration while she is away so that she can come back with confidence towards baptism! 

We also met with a less active in the ward named Pearl. She is so awesome! We showed her the "Because of Him" Mormon message. After the video she started to cry. I didn't expect that! She knows that she needs to go to church, but she doesn't. She specifically told us that. So we are going to give her a little push so that she can become active again! Because she has so much potential, and I know she will be able to do great things in her life! 

On Thursday, in the morning we taught one of our other recent converts Arminda. She just received a calling, and she is so excited!! She is an amazing example to me because even though her family isn't supportive of her baptism, she still is holding strong! She has strengthened my testimony of the gospel, and I can feel that she is very close to the Spirit. She is fantastic! 

On Friday we went with Kelly to the ward building, and she got her baptismal interview! She passed! Yeah!!! We are so happy for her, and we know that this act of faith will strengthen her so much! Her baptismal date will be on October 2nd which is Conference weekend, but it will be awesome! 

We also did a lot of weekly planning! We worked really hard to receive revelation for our investigators and less actives in the ward. We definitely are ready for this upcoming week! 

On Saturday, we attended a baptism for one of Sister Grange's investigators. I also taught him (Pedro) and his fiancĂ© (Lexi) on exchanges, so I knew them! It is so weird, but out of all the baptisms that I have gone to with Sister Grange, I have taught them all on exchanges! God is amazing!! :) 

Sister Grange and I taught the 5 minute teaching moment! It was so powerful, and I know that the Spirit was definitely there! Then after his baptism, Lexi and Pedro got married! It was so sweet! They plan to be sealed in the temple one year from now! 

This week has been amazing! There have definitely been some ups and downs, but God is good! And he knows how to boost our spirits when we are discouraged! He loves us so much, and he wants to help us! All we have to do is reach out to Him! I know this church is true! The gospel is real, and it changes lives! I love all of you! Have a great week!

  1. I have a son serving in Tucson right now--so I stumbled across this blog. HOW AMAZING to have 4 missionaries serving at the same time!! I have loved reading a few letters from each of them--this is my new favorite blog.
    Quadruple the blessings, for sure. :)
