Sounds like again you have had a very awesome week! My
week has definitely had it's ups and downs. I caught a really bad flu
on Wednesday and was in bed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with a temp.
sometimes as high as 102.8! I am feeling well now though so no worries.
Still have a pretty bad cough and stuff but at least I can function
without nearly passing out or falling over! I'm back to full working
health now, finally, so I am very excited to keep on rolling and serving
the Lord at a greater effectiveness. :)
Despite being really
really sick for most of this last week. It has been a really good one
still! The first part of the week was really sweet because when we
showed up to teach one of our investigators at the chapel and upon
arrival we discovered that she
and her member friend brought 6 more of their friends to come learn as
well! What a miracle! We gave them a tour of the chapel and then taught
them all the restoration. It has been confirmed too, that they are
coming again this week! That's awesome news. We also had a great
experience with one of our investigators being baptized on Saturday! Her
name is Fane. She is now the only member in her family, 27 years old
she is really humble and loves coming to church! An investigator named
Monty was at the baptism and said that he wants to be baptized in 3
weeks too so hopefully we can help him and make that happen!
mission conference yesterday was really great as well! I got A LOT of
notes and great revelation that will definitely help me immediately and
for a very long term. Elder Pearson and Elder Christensen are very
inspired men and did a great job of helping our misson. Haven't taught
Semu again, he is in a completely
different area but hopefully he will still be getting baptized soon.
There will be a lot of chanllenges for him but the Lord will provide...
I really like the subject of the talk you gave,
Dad. Using preach my gospel is the perfect reference! I'm really glad
that you mentioned member missionary work too. Hopefully it gets the
rest of the ward pumped up to do some missionary work too.
miss everyone and look forward to hearing about all the things going on
next week! I love the pictures from camping. Looks so fun and the
kids look so cute!! hahah anyway, til next week!
Love, Elder Thompson
