Welcome back to the favorite part of your weeks, getting to read my weekly.
This week was quite busy full of appointments with legends, being ripped away from my boy Elder Hillyard twice, a baptism, and a confirmation.
First, we can slide right in to the lessons we taught. We taught a legend called Christoph who is quite busy, too busy to read even the smallest of pamphlets, but it’s alright. He’s got 2 lizards which he’s quite proud of.
We also later met with our friend from Indonesia, and it was an amazing lesson. We talked about the plan of salvation, what the purpose of life is, where we go after we die, etc., and he accepted it very well. He actually told us about how he read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and had a, „warm feeling of joy“ from it. This was awesome to hear. Hopefully we can help him come to baptism by the end of this month.
We also met with Jason, prepared him for the baptism and answered last minute questions, and read some of the Book of Mormon.
Hmmm we also met with Georg again after a while, he’s also ready and excited to be baptized, and should hopefully be there by the end of the month too.
Saturday was a busy day, we had Jason’s baptism!! We started off real nice and early in the morning heading over to play soccer, and then right after, showering and going to visit a Persian family. There we had some great food, and Elder Neale gave his first 2 sick blessings in Persian, and I attempted to do my best to make myself seem entertaining in Persian. Then after, we sprinted for a bus we needed to catch—and wouldn’t have been able to catch if the bus driver hadn’t stopped for us in the middle of 2 stops!
We headed back to the church for Jason’s baptism. The legend came having not tried on any of the baptismal clothes, but luckily they all fit. The talks were great, it only took one try to baptize him, and it was overall an awesome experience that we won’t forget.
Like I say lots, the Lord is blessing us like crazy up here with so much success. I’m so grateful to be on a mission and to see so much of the Lord’s hand in His work.
Have a fun week,
