Good Tiding of Great Joy
Good morning, everybody! I cannot believe it's been a week since I last emailed... this week flew by. Exchanges on Wednesday, Temple on Thursday (INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!), and interviews on Friday hastened the time. It was a spiritually rewarding week.
Our investigators could be doing better... we spent an hour coordinating members for teaches, lifts to and from church, and lifts to the Christmas party. They then proceeded to fall off the face of the Earth. Not sure what happened, but we know we did all we could. We're going to keep trying. I have no doubts that this was just a little slip up and that the Lord will provide a way for them to receive the saving ordinance of baptism.
On a brighter note, we committed our new investigator, E., to be baptised on January 10th! She is AMAZING! She asks the most incredible questions and is so sincere! She is also extremely sensitive to the Spirit. She gets emotional regularly during lessons. It's so fun to see her grow in testimony, even though we've only taught her for a week. We're taking her to the Temple Visitors Center on Christmas Eve. The Visitors Center Sisters will do their thing, which is always incredible. They have a track record of 100% in sealing the testimonies of those I've brought to them. It should seal her testimony and solidify the date. We are so excited.
The next few days will be amazing. We're being taken care of very well this week and I get to see the many of my favorite families in the ward - so yes it'll be incredible. I hope all of you have a great week- enjoy the spirit of the season, but make sure the focus is on Jesus Christ! :) For He truly is what matters most.
