"So many people along the way...will tell you it can't be done. But
all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There
will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence in
yourself and those around you, there are no limits." -Michael Phelps
This week I had the opportunity to witness the greatest miracle of
all. On Saturday, our investigator K was baptized!!! On Sunday, he was
K is amazing. I also can't believe that I had the opportunity, (along
with Sister Gibb of course) to teach him all the lessons! We met him
at church. He had been going to the other ward for a few weeks just
because he thought he should be there. He had never met with
missionaries and was unfamiliar with the church, but he loved it. When
we went to teach him lesson 1, it was on a P day and he was wearing
his pajamas when we showed up! When we asked him why he came to church
he said that his goal was to be closer to God. We taught him the
restoration and talked about baptism, and when he found out what it
was he said "When can I do that?" 😀
He had been waiting for that day for a long time! His face was just
lit up. He is really shy, but throughout teaching him he has opened up
so much. He loves church and God, and he's read the Book of Mormon
like a starving man. We love him so much! And now, he's baptized and
on the fast track to eternal life! We couldn't be more happy or more
Here are the pictures:
So that was the best thing that happened this week, but we also had some other fun things happen!
This week I caught a lizard, a toad and a tree frog. We only got pictures of the tree frog but we took a selfie with him!
He is so tiny!! Don't worry, we let him go after that.
Also, this week we biked a lot, but now my bike isn't broken! So I've had a blast.
Sister Gibb on the other hand, fell over when she was dismounting and really scraped up her knees. Luckily we were wearing service clothes! She was fine, but she had a lot of band aids for a while! She's a trooper.
This week was filled with miracles of all kinds. I'm so grateful to be on a mission where I get to meet miraculous people! We invited 5 people to baptism this week, and only 1 said no! :) we'll see what happens next with that, but we hope that means a baptism next month too!
