Hi, friends and family! It's been quite a week full of ups and downs.
We found a way to drown out our neighbors music but it involves turning on the AC. It's safe to say by the morning we are Popsicle's. We've had to channel our inner Elsa and not let it bother us.
Tuesday we taught our new investigator Steven and his wife Jemimah! It was awesome! They are so prepared and the spirit was so strong as we taught them about the Book of Mormon. We invited them to be baptized if they learned for themselves that it was true and they said "of course!" I'm so excited to see this gospel bless their lives!
Wednesday we had another lesson with Michael and his parents. We asked his dad, Anthony if he wanted to be baptized like Michael and he said he was open to it but wants to learn more. We can definitely work with that.
This week in English class we have been teaching the sisters "I Am A Child of God". As we taught them the words and their meaning, the spirit was so strong and testified to me that each and every one of us are children of a loving Heavenly Father and He wants us to return to him. When the sisters understood the meaning of the song we were teaching, the way they sang it changed. It was such a tender experience.
This weekend was difficult. On Saturday, one of the less active sisters that we work with was hit by a car. She had serious injuries and swelling in her brain. We were glad to hear today that she is responsive and recovering quickly. The Lord is definitely watching over her. Another nightmarish situation we had this week was with one of our investigators. They were arrested and it looks like they will be going back to prison for a very long time. Some things you just have to brush off and know that you did your very best.
This transfer is going by so fast! I can't believe it. The church is true, the book is blue! The Lord answers prayers. Have a great week, everyone! God bless. :)
Love, Sister B
