Transfer 14, Week 3, Lakes Stake, Desert Breeze Ward
going to have to make this super fast! We don't have much time! Today we
are moving from the Stake Presidents house to another members home in
This week was great! We had the baptism of Savannah! It went
great! Spencer is so happy to have his wife a member of the church and
they are preparing to go to the temple next January!
the baptism of Byron last week. Brother Johnstons brother came to the
baptism and we ended up meeting with him this past Tuesday! He is
great! He has no real belief in God, only a higher power. We taught the
first lesson and taught him/asked him to pray. He has never prayed
before but he gave the best prayer Ive ever heard! So much better than
any of my prayers!
We also were able to meet with the Worku family! We have brought
up baptism and she brushed it off and said that she has already been
baptized. But this last time we were able to get her to understand the
meaning of the Restoration in her life! She said that she would be
willing to make baptism a goal but she said that she isn't ready yet! So
We also met with Conrad, our new investigator from last week. He
is very kind and is willing to listen. He does have a problem with
prophets; men getting in the way of god, as he puts it. So we will need
to help him understand that... but overall its been a great week!
I love you all! I'll try to make next weeks letter longer!
Love, Elder John
believe when we determine within our hearts that by and with the
blessings of God our Heavenly Father we will accomplish a certain labor,
God gives the ability to accomplish that labor; but when we lay down,
when we look at the top of the mountain and say it is impossible to
climb to the summit, while we never make an effort it will never be
accomplished" -Heber J. Grant
