|The three amigos before getting transferred|
I have a new companion, his name is Elder Samuel Robison. He is from the great city of Boise Idaho and is 19 years old. He is actually a month older than me which is funny to be training him. He is a great missionary and has a great head on his shoulders. Excited to see the work go forward with awesomeness here in the Dana Point Area.
|In August my nephew was baptized by immersion|
A, dropped us as missionaries. He is no longer wanting to learn from us. He came here to the States to do and find things that would not be open to him in Iran and so it makes sense. He is a smart guy and wants to learn all he can before making a decision, I am positive he will return and want to continue to progress in the Gospel.
We have a date for baptism....November 2nd. A little later than anticipated but it is going to happen so that is what matters. His brother has decided to get baptized as well which is amazing. Such a cool experience being a part of all of this with them and seeing them learn and grow in the gospel. It is getting the ward excited and they want to help us along as much as they can.
Yesterday picked up a new investigator. We met her on the street and asked if she would be interested in learning more about Jesus Christ. She excitedly said yes and we set an appointment for yesterday at 4:00. We went over and talked about The Spirit World, Book of Mormon, Word of Wisdom, and Baptism. She said she was born and raised Catholic along with her husband but they want their kids to be raised in a Bible based religion so they started going to a born again church. When talking about baptism she said "My husband and I were baptized as babies, but it makes sense that we would need to get baptized again because we are older and can actually know what we have done wrong "Are your serious!" We were so excited, she asked us what she needed to study to learn more so we gave her 2nd Nephi 31 ( http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/2-ne/31?lang=eng ) and said this will help you know what you need to do to best follow Christ and bring as much happiness as possible into the life of your family.
So all is going well out here in the field, Hard at times but the miracles make it all worth it. I love you all so much and hope your week ahead is full of miracles and even more exciting news. Follow the spirit in all that you do, know that contention is of the devil and we all need to agree before we act. The Lord will Justify us in all the GOOD things that we do. Stay strong and of good courage and know that the Lord is real, does exist and does truly care about each one of his Brothers and Sisters. You are loved and cared by a power greater than any of us can comprehend. Love you all :)
