How are you all doing? I hope all is well there in
Centerville! I still can't believe you guys are back there..... That is
This week has been 100% AMAZING!!! I am so happy and the work is going great!
On Thursday, we went to a high school and taught a religions class
about the church. It was intimidating, but a really cool experience. On
Friday, we flew to Oslo for a mission conference with Elder Teixeira
from the quorum of the seventy. It was such a great learning experience.
The Spirit is always the best teacher! :)
On Saturday, we had a baptism! Smith was baptized and it turned out
so great! He brought 4 friends with him to his baptism and none of them
were members! He is a missionary already! :) He was so incredibly happy
and was just glowing! Lots of members were able to come and support him
and that just made everything better! I am so grateful to be a part of
this work! It truly is miraculous!
Earlier last week, we had a really cool experience. I received a
couple of texts from a number that I no longer had in my phone. The
person was asking if we were still helping people take an experiment to
find God. I told them yes and we made an appointment for Saturday after
the baptism. I had no idea who this person was, just that we had met
them and gave them our number. On Saturday, we met up- it was an 18year
old boy who sister Pace and I had met within our first 2 weeks in
Bergen. We had tried to get an appointment, but his grandpa had a heart
attack and we lost contact shortly after. He was going through his phone
and saw my number and felt like it was right to text. We had the most
amazing teach! He has no faith in God, but he wants one and we were able
to help him recognize the Spirit in the teach! It was so cool! He came
to church yesterday and loved it! And he will be bringing his twin
brother with him the next time we meet! :) Miracles!!!
Well, I am sorry this is short, but I have to go now... School business took too long. I will send you pictures next week! :)
I love and miss you all! :)
