Week #29 - "The message they shared was true"

Hey Everyone!

This past week has been a blast and a lot of crazy experiences. To start off the week we met a former investigator. Really nice guy and has 2 little boys and are just full of energy. It has been awhile since Elder Isaacson has seen him. We started talking and were getting an understanding if he was still interested. He said he was and then just reviewed the restoration with him to see how much he remembered. He remembered a lot and committed him to read the BOM. The next visit we went to see him he told us this awesome experience he had.  When he was saying his prayers at night he asked if the message we shared with him was true. After he was done praying he said he thought he heard someone say, "Those two men that came by your house were servants of the Lord and the message they shared was true".  WOW!!!!  We were going to put him on a baptismal date but he is leaving in a couple weeks to go to Puerto Rico to see his dad cause his health isn't doing to good. He will be gone for about a month sadly but we are going to see him as much as we can before he leaves.  Met with our investigator friend a handful of times this week and he his doing amazing. He is just grasping the gospel so well and he just loves it.  Still working with the investigator family and they are just so solid but haven't been at church and possibly have to move the date back. We are having the faith and hope that they will come.

This past Friday, while Elder Isaacson and I were seeing a couple of potential investigators and when we were knocking on one house it just started raining super hard. The car was parked down the road so there was no point in running so we walked all the way back to the car and got drenched. It was fun though and we had a good laugh about it.

Also yesterday, Elder Iassacson and I and the sister missionaries gave a talk in sacrament meeting. It was awesome cause we talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ which is faith, repentance, baptism, and receiving the gift of the holy ghost. I was asked to talk about baptism and I love talking to people about baptism and how it can help us be forgiven for our sins and be able to receive eternal life with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and our families. It was an awesome talk. I hope you all have a wonderful week.  LOVES!!
