Dear Family and Friends,
FASTING WORKS!!!! Last week was amazing. We fasted on Tuesday to help us find, teach, and baptize. Then guess what happened?? We were able to find 4 new investigators! We were about to set a baptismal date with Aaron for April 25th. We also were able to talk about baptism with Serena and then with John. They both want to be baptized in April, but we haven't officially set any dates with them yet. The Lord is totally in this work. He is waiting to answer our prayers, but first we have to say our prayers so He can answer them.
John (Investigator) and his almost wife Karla (Less Active) came to church yesterday. The topics we discussed were totally for them. We talked about the Atonement and baptism and commitment. Yesterday was so amazing. John bore his testimony to us yesterday and explained why he knows the gospel is true. He is my favorite person to teach right now. I really don't want to get transferred because I really want to continue to help him and Karla on their journey to the temple :).
Transfers are in a week though, and Sister M and I both have the feeling that we are both leaving. We are going to continue to pray that one of us stays so we can keep teaching the people that are finally starting to trust us, but we'll see what God has in store for us!
We did have some funny quotes from last week.
"What's a revelator?" "Someone who receives revelation" "Ohhhh soooo like me. I received revelation once, but that was when I was on drugs so I don't think that counts"
"I have to clean up some lady's garage. I have to wear gloves and a mask...there could be rattlesnakes, spiders, or dead people"
"I'm afraid of the hospital because you can come out dead!"
"He [Nephi] said he's going to speak plainly....he's a LIAR"
And now for jokes:
How come Joseph Smith couldn't have dinner?
Because Moroni took all the plates.
How come the Lamanites always had bad knees?
Because of all the Nephites
Well I hope everyone has a great week. I'll talk to you all later. Love,
The T Family
Karla and John
