So, last week Sister Gomm and I were woken up by our phone going off at 11:30 at night. (Crazy late I know, but such is the life of a missionary.) I got up and turned it off, being half asleep I thought it was an alarm. Fast forward to a few days later. This nighttime fiasco came up in conversation and Sister Gomm and I decided to check and make sure we didn't have an alarm that would go off again that late. Well, there were no alarms set for 11:30. Weird. We then figure that maybe someone had called us. Sure enough, a few days earlier, a former investigator named Bridget had called us at 11:30 at night. So, we try and call her back but no one answers, and we shrug it off as a pocket dial. Tuesday comes and we just cannot stop thinking about this lady calling us so we decide to try again. There was no answer but this time we left a voice mail. There's not much else we can do after so we go about our day, knocking on doors and such. When we get back to our car we see that we have a missed call and a voicemail from B!
Now, it's a joke Sister Gomm and I have that every time we check our phone, we're checking to see if someone has called or texted us wanting to be baptized. Hilarious, I know. Well, we listen to this voicemail and Bridget tells us that she had talked to some sister missionaries this summer and they had asked her if she wanted to be baptized in Christ's church, and she had decided that she did! WHAT?! We called back, finally got a hold of her, and scheduled a time to meet with her. The lesson was amazing! She has such an enthusiasm for gospel! We asked her if she believed that the Book of Mormon was true and she said: "I don't know, I haven't read it yet! But I'm going to read it every second that I'm not doing anything." So amazing! She has a baptismal date set for April 10!! The Lord is so good! :)
In other news, we had some awesome dinners with some awesome members this week and talked to so many different people! Being a missionary is so great!
I hope you are all doing well. Have a wonderful week and keep smiling! :)
