Dear Family,
This week was so wonderful!  Saturday our investigator was baptized.   After more than twenty years of visiting with missionaries and probably a hundred different baptism dates, she was finally baptized.  It was truly a miracle.  Wednesday when she was supposed to have her baptismal interview, we got there and she told us that she wanted to move the date again.  Every time the baptism date got close, she moved it. After about an hour of talking to her, the zone leader told her we are just going to try something, we’ll just have the interview and see what happens.   We waited for about a half an hour, and prayed for a miracle. When they came out she told us that she was going to be baptized on Saturday!! It was a really big testimony builder to me that when we do everything we can, the Lord will do the rest.  After Wednesday, she was so excited about her baptism and everything went smoothly.  Her grandson was able to baptize and confirm her.  It was a really special baptism because her family had been waiting for this day for such a long time.  I am so grateful to be able to help this family be an eternal family.
We were also able to reactivate two members this week.  They came to church after being inactive for a while.  They both are excited to work towards their goal of going to the temple.   We are still working with ways to try and get the ward more involved.  We are going to have another big family home evening tonight with an active family and some less actives. 
well i hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the snow :) its going to be a weird christmas without snow haha.  i love you all! xoxo
