news on the upcoming baptisms for the 21st: the three girls are super excited about getting baptized! myself and elder Kay are the ones going to baptize them. tiffany asked me to and alondra asked kay and monica couldn't decide so we flipped a coin and it landed on me haha. so this will be the first time I've baptized someone (two someones). it will be a blast! Amanda and her husband decided that it would be best to wait until all the family comes for the baby being born. as of sunday none of the family knew that she was getting baptized. so they talked and prayed about it and she's planning on being baptized in october. if she wasn't so solid i would be concerned but she's really excited about baptism and knows that shell have to work extra hard to keep that fire burning. it will all work out =)
yesterday, we were kind of having a slow morning and our 8pm lesson canceled and we had a guy's name written down but couldn't remember why so we just decided to go to brother wolfgram's house. (he's the ward mission leader for the ward with the three girls and amanda). we show up and there's another guy there working. wolfgram explained that he was a guy looking for work and as he was walking by felt the spirit tell him to talk to that guy and ask him for work. and then we showed up. he's from tennesee and knows nothing about the lds church but would like to learn. coincidences don't happen, especially as a missionary. i know heavenly father is mindful of all his children and knows their needs. he loves us and doesn't want to ever leave us hangin', but that whole agency thing makes it so we have to ask seek and knock for his blessings which means keeping his commandments to show him that we really mean it. I know he loves me and just like a good parent wants to help me help myself. this gospel is great isnt it? =) its true and always will be, He promised that.
