March 12, 2012

We taught 12 lessons this week total. We taught G., prepping him for his baptism which was Saturday! It was Great! He was super happy and his family was too! Before the baptism we taught G. in the church and showed her the restoration and then she stayed for the baptism and loved it. She is super excited for her baptism on the 7th of April. Yesterday I confirmed G. a member, which is getting a lot easier, haha. It was great. We also taught T. again this week and she is excited to get baptized too, but she has to find new work so that she can go to church. With her faith it shouldn’t take long though. Let’s see, oh ya, also taught V.who is getting baptized on the 23rd and she and her brother and dad were all at church on Sunday, which was fantastic. We are trying to work with her brother to get him ready for baptism as well, but it’s coming a little slower than with her. We also taught a few less active families who we mostly just read with to try and establish the habit of reading in the scriptures everyday. It’s slow, but coming along decently enough. They are making progress. Oh ya, we also taught F. who believes that everything is true, but he is a drummer in a band for a non-denominational church and doesn’t want to lose that. He feels that he has a talent and that he wants to use that talent to praise God, but our church obviously doesn’t have a band for him to play in, so it’s just hard for him. He is working through it though. We talked a little about musicians in the church and will talk some more about prayer this week with him. So we had a pretty good week last week, but this one should end up better now that the zone leader training meetings (shown in the pics -- check out me and Elder Corvalan, my comp, teaching!) are out of the way.
