It was an exciting week! We had a baptism! Woohoo!! It was so nice! It had been a crazy week and we weren't as prepared as we would have liked to have been, but thankfully it all came together nicely. It was for Annette and I'm do happy for her.
We also found a new person this week. It was amazing! We had gone out tracting for Sunday. We always try and dedicate some time each week to doing so. We went to this one house and talked to Nicole. We decided to try sharing a scripture for an approach. As we were discussing, she started to cry and said that we being there was a sign. She had been thinking about going back to church for her family and her sister had been begging her to go. And then we should up. She asked when services were and said she would be planning on coming. We asked if we could come back and discuss some things about the church. She said yes! I loved this so much because we were touching someone's life and bringing life into their life.
We also helped a member put her house together. They had recently bought it and had some renovations going on with it. They were expecting the appraisers next week, but then they surprised her and said they were coming in that week! She was not prepared! She asked us to come over and we put the house in order. It was actually pretty fun and we got to know her even better. I was really happy to help.
I love learning about the gospel and feeling the spirit. I'm learning a lot about grace and how we overcome our weaknesses. We should never punish ourselves for what we have done. We need to move forward. It is all a part of the plan, even if we mess up. Because God's timing is perfect!
I love you all! I wish you all a happy week!
