Email #14 - Twin Falls, Idaho
Sorry I missed emailing last week! We were very busy that day and I promise it won’t happen again!
So here is what's happening, Last Saturday we got permission to attend the baptism of a young man we have been teaching named Jeremy Mills on the 8th of January! He got baptized outside our area so we had to ask President if we could go and he said yes! =) Work is starting to pick up again now that the holidays are over, which we are very happy about. There's only so much a missionary can do when there is no work to be done. lol
We have also been visiting a less active woman named Michelle who's testimony is very weak. She knows the church is true but still does wrong anyway. She says she doesn't want to go and talk to her bishop because of what she has done in her past. If she did tell she would be ex communicated, and if that happened she says she would not come back to the church. I hurt for her, because she could be such an amazing woman but she seems to have abandoned all hope for forgiveness. Please pray for her.
Yesterday was amazing as we only had two lessons planned but ended the day with five! I love how the Lord blesses us with people to teach when we just put in the effort to go and find them.
I'm not going to write a lot on this email because I have a lot of letters heading your way soon with details in them. Even one for you Danielle. lol.
I love you all and pray that the Lord will continue to bless you. Stay Cool!
