I don't know how to express the joy that i have in my heart right now!! I feel like ammon as he was rejoicing to the point that his brethren thought he was boasting, i honestly believe that my biggest trial right now is to saty humble. That has been a struggle for me my whole mission but i feel the lords help now more than ever before!! I have had the best week of my mission so far!! On Tuesday we received a Mormon.org referral for Apple, she learned in Thailand for 1 year, and she was never baptized, she came here to live with her sister for 6 months and wants to be baptized!! Her baptism is this Saturday at 7pm!! WHOO!!! Also Kris Krekow was baptized this past Saturday. We found out that against all odds, even opposing family he made the decision to be baptized because he knew it was true!! GOD IS A GOD OF MIRACLES!!! my new favorite scripture and my new mission scripture is 2nd Nephi 27:23 which says "For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work not among the children of men save it be according to their faith."
We had a multiple districts blitz this week in Cougar Mountain. Elder Aiken and I went out and tracted an apartment complex after tracting one building and grabbing a sweater from the car we said a prayer pleading for the lords help in allowing us to find someone who needed our help and who we could put on date for baptism. I felt strongly prompted to go to building D, while running there Whitney was placed in our path. We taught her and boldly told her we were sent by god to change her life. With tears in her eyes she told us she cant remember the last time she felt happy. We put her on date for January 21st and as she said the closing prayer she thanked God for being able to feel an ounce of peace and told Him she was willing to do anything to feel that more on her life!! SHE IS AMAZING!!!! I love this work with all of my heart, might, mind, and strength and now i know that God cares for people everywhere and he is preparing the people!!
