Had another great week here in Okeechobee.
We were planing on putting a couple of our investigators on date but didn't happen which was a bummer. We are planing to have one person this week on a baptismal date. Not sure who we will ask but will ask someone. Didn't have any investigators come to church which was a bummer. We did get a handful of new investigators which was awesome so hopefully they will progress in meeting with us.
Since being here in Okeechobee, I have met a lot of families that remind me a lot of my family. It's super funny and makes me feel at home which is nice. The family we visit is doing great. They haven't been to church in a long time. I don't think they will come anytime soon but they are making good progress especially the dad. They are more and more happy when we come and when we leave. Really excited for them. They are an awesome family.
Got to also see a gator and his mom. He had a lot of questions for us which was good. He was a little confused about the authority leaving then coming back. So we explained and use the Book of Mormon to help solidify what we were saying. He didn't quite agree that the authority had left but still wanted to read the Book of Mormon. Yay!!! He would probably be the one that we will extend the baptismal invitation too.
Had a good time seeing another member. He is one that is coming back into activity which is awesome. He understands things at a slower process so we have been going by and reading the Book of Mormon with him. Helping him understand more of what he is reading. He is progressing so well that he's reading the chapters before hand and is picking things out on his own which is awesome. Love this guy so much.
Yesterday at church, there was some wonderful talks given. It was all about the Plan Of Salvation. It made me think a lot about it and the knowledge is gives me. It is so wonderful to know where we came from, why am I here, and where am I going after I die. It also feels me with so much love from my Heavenly Father. That he sent his son, Jesus Christ, for US!! I am so grateful for the gospel in my life. I'm so blessed!! I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know my savior lives!!
I love you all!! Have a blessed week!!
