So, this is the second week on my mission that I've broken 20 lessons taught to investigators with a member there. Two weeks ago, we taught 21, and this week, we taught 23! Woooo!! We've been so busy, it's ridiculous. However, I'm eternally grateful for the Lord and His blessings on us and our area.
Taryn was baptized!! It was beautiful. There was another baptism taking place in the church building right before, so getting the baptism clothes and everything set up before was a bit stressful, but it all came together in the end. I feel like almost every baptism I've been a part of has been like that! The Adversary does NOT want that important step to be made because he knows the eternal happiness they will gain from it and the associated living of Gospel standards after it, so he will stop at nothing to ruin that big day for everyone. Luckily, Satan is nothing compared to God!
We taught a young men's/young women's class this week! We related the Gospel to gatorball (that game I told you about that we play on P-days). No big deal. Actually, it was wonderfully fun.
Tons of crazy things for taking care of our Sisters! Stress here, nightmares there, phone calls everywhere, and organizing meetings/musical firesides! It's a wonderful thing to be a Sister Training Leader, though! They all teach me so much and I'm honored (and sometimes confused) to be part of it all.
New investigator: Gabby! Adorable little 12 year-old girl. Fun story: her dad lives in another part of Pocatello and is being baptized this coming saturday and hopefully will be able to baptize her in a few weeks!
Chriss came to Taryn's baptism and to church!! She felt peace at both! Woo!
Everyone else is doing great, too!
Not a lot of time! Sorry!
Love you all! Buy and read "The Power of Everyday Missionaries!"
