This week saw a couple more miracles among the people we had the chance to teach. To start, Elder Daugherty and I had the chance to finish up the commandments lesson with one of our main investigators. Following the lesson we asked him about how he feels about baptism since the last time we discussed him doing so. As a result he told us that now he feels like it is something that he can and needs to do, so we were able to put him on a baptismal date for tentatively May 19th, with the expectation that the date will change once he figures out various scheduling details. Teaching him has been so natural and Spirit led, and it was an amazing feeling to see him progress up to this point. The only problem now comes from him moving out of our area before the date to a nearby ward, but either way he will be baptized!
Another update I would like to give comes from the part member family that we are teaching. They have a very young daughter that has a ton of energy. Because of this, during a lesson we had it was very difficult to keep everyone’s attention and the Spirit was not as strong as it could have been. At the end though the less active member father who had a recent surgery limped into the room and asked for a blessing to alleviate the pain. Elder Daugherty anointed and I blessed. At this point the children immediately became reverent and the Spirit filled the room. Following the blessing he told me that the pain started to leave immediately. It was very much a testimony building experience. His entire family was also able to come to church this Sunday, as well as the investigator from the first story.
Outside of these events, I also had an exchange and interviews with President Orton. While the mission is getting closer and closer to the end the work is moving forward in power and authority. I know that this Gospel is true, and thank you everyone who has helped and supported me to allow these experiences to happen.
