Another crazy week. The weeks are going by wayyy too fast. i can't handle it. ahh. We have committed 4 people to being baptized on August 23rd. So we are really praying for that. This week we were really praying about people that could be baptized on that day and a new name we hadn't considered popped into our heads. We went to visit him the next day and he committed to August 23rd. So we are going to visit him everyday this week and help him prepare. He is awesome though. He is kind of just jumping through all the commitments on his own. When we went he told us he is trying to talk to his boss to come to church on Sunday and that he has switched from green tea to herbal tea. So that was a miracle. We hadn't even visited him for a few weeks. So he has lots of potential.
We have another investigator that we hadn't visited for awhile out in the country. We went out there to visit a less active member and they weren't home so we decided to stop by and see how this guy was doing. We taught him the restoration again and committed him to be baptized on the 23rd if he receives an answer. So we are really excited about these two new people because they weren't even part of our focus people before. We are still teaching a few others that we've been focusing on for awhile and really hope they will be able to prepare by that date. So miracles are needed here so we are praying for that!
We went over to Nevis again. It went really well. We had an investigator at church! Which is definitely a miracle. We taught him a lesson after about the Sabbath day. He grew up a 7 day Adventist so we were a little worried when he started questioning but with the spirit and the scriptures we were able to testify of the Sabbath day and he understood and accepted it. We gave him a 7 day challenge to pray and read every day and he was really excited about it. So next time we go to Nevis we are really going to focus on him and helping him be baptized soon!
We have lots of investigators and things to do so we are really excited to keep working. So much to do in these next 2 weeks. I can't believe how fast time is flying by. I read a scripture this morning that i really liked. Its Omni 1:26 "And now by beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ who is the Holy One of Israel and partake of His salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him and continue in fasting and praying and endure to the end and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved." I am truly grateful for the opportunity I have to invite others to come to Christ and experience His mercy and grace.
Thanks for all your love and support! See you soon!
