We're Moving!?!...[Nov. 23, 2015]
These last couple of days we found out that we are going to change to a house. Some member from another ward is donating their house to the mission, so we are going to move into it.
Apart from that, we also had a baptism this last Saturday. Her name is Jacqueline and she has been an investigator here for a while. She has wanted to get baptized for a while, but wasn't able to for a while. She had a lot of difficulties that I can't really describe here and was finally able to overcome them. We still have to pray for her a lot and know that God is helping her.
President Nelson asked us earlier to tell us when her baptism was going to be so he could come, and he did. It was a huge help having him there to support her. President later said that of all the people he has met, she is one of the greatest to be able to appreciate the Atonement in her life. I honestly don't know how to explain the baptismal services with words, but it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I felt humbled and honored when she asked me to perform the ordinance.
Apart from the baptism, we keep working hard to find new investigators. Everyone seems to get excited to come to English class, but almost no one shows up. I guess we just have to keep praying to receive inspiration and miracles because we can't really do all that much by ourselves comparatively.
One of our investigators, we contacted in her store. At first, she didn't seem all that interested, but we felt impressed to keep persisting and eventually she relented. We have taught her a few times and she is really good.
Sorry, I don't have more time. Have an excellent week!
