Well folks the pressure is on, because rumor has it there are a few of you who still read these things.
If I was good with words this e-mail would keep you at the edge of your seat and on your toes at the same time while reading because literally that's how I was alllll week long.
For good reason too...
Sister Kelly had to go to the dentist...and that was really painful for her. Sister Frazier's eye all of a sudden was a crazy mess and couldn't see for a few days. Basically companionship study on Wednesday was me staring at one companion with an ice pack on her mouth and another companion holding her weeping eye. We were waiting for my hearing to go out all week. HA.
I'm real thankful for companions who work through the pain though....I was literally Sister Frazier's seeing eye missionary for a few days this week. Don't worry everyone's eyes, ears, mouths, and noses are all in tact now. As for the knees....Sister Kelly's have been messed up since before she got here.
It seems that there was some miscommunication between us and the Elders in the ward. Basically we planned an entire baptism in three hours, which proves to be hard....especially when it's spring break and everyone and their dog is out of town. Long story short after we called about every active member in the ward to participate in the baptism, we eventually found some less active folks to join us. Then we got a call realllllllllllllllll late on Friday night explaining that Shy wouldn't be baptized the following day. Turns out her mom...who didn't have an opinion the whole time we were teaching her...now has an opinion. All is well because I am convinced that this is just giving us an opportunity to teach her family with her.
Despite the hope that I have that Shy will be baptized reallll soon, I was in need of a miracle.....and I made that very clear to Heavenly Father in my prayers that day. Good news though...missionary work is the Lord's work and so of course we witnessed a miracle. We went to go teach a referral from church headquarters.....and wow. Wow. WOW. We taught him about the restoration and while I was sharing a scripture and working on getting to the baptismal invitation when Enrique stopped me, apologized for interrupting me, and proceeded to ask if he could be baptized into the church. MIRACLES. WOW. When I told him that literally that question was going to be the next words out of my mouth, he reallllyyyyy recognized that the spirit was there. Anyway, we set a date with him for the 21st of may...it has to be a little further out then he wants it because is going to Utah for the next few weeks. But hey, hey, eighteen hour train ride and a Book of Mormon sounds like a good combination to me.
Easter was incredible.
The resurrection is incredible. The message of the Risen Lord is the most powerful message and I'm so blessed to have an opportunity to share it. It changes lives. Jesus Christ truly truly is the Savior of the world. I love Him and I know that He loves all of you.
THANKS FOR STAYING TUNED IN.
