date to be baptized!! His name is Ron, we tracted into him a couple
weeks ago, and we were able to get a return appointment with him this
past Monday! It was probably one of the best lessons I've been in! We
had an awesome member team up as well. We talked to him a bit before
the lesson ("How to Begin Teaching" in Preach My Gospel), and he
opened up a lot. He shared some pretty amazing, humbling experiences
he's had in his life. He has had a pretty rough life, yet he sees the
positive in it all and told us he knows everything happens for a
reason and he just knows there's something else out there for him! He
is so prepared to hear the gospel! We had to cut the lesson short
because the hour was up, but he scheduled a church tour with us for
the very next day. The church tour was awesome, we were able to finish
teaching the restoration and we invited him to be baptized, he said
yes without hesitation! At the end we asked how he felt, and he said
he felt so good that words couldn't even describe it! He told us that
before he came on the church tour he said a prayer that he would know
if this was the right church for him, and later on he texted us and
told us how he has been in such a great mood ever since we invited him
to be baptized and that he got his answer and he is going to join the
church! It is just so amazing to see how the Lord prepares people to
receive his gospel!
Nothing else too exciting happened this week. We're just so excited to
finally have an investigator progressing and on date to be baptized!
Today some members took us hiking to Amicalola Falls, it was such a
pretty hike and waterfall! I'll attach some pictures :)
Here is a quote that I liked from a conference talk I read this week
("Do I Believe?" By Bonnie L. Oscarson from May 2016):
"We have a knowledge of these things, but do we believe them? If these
things are true, then we have the greatest message of hope and help
that the world has ever known. Believing them is a matter of eternal
significance for us and for those we love.
To believe, we need to get the gospel from our heads into our hearts!"
Love y'all and hope your week is amazing!
