Well, now for the good stuff! :) An Elder in my mission is Elder Hansen and I guess Grandpa Doney sealed his parents in the temple!!! Super cool right? They knew that I was going to be in this mission and so they told me about it. Also! I had the opportunity to go to the temple again! 2 weeks in a row, I am so blessed right?!? We had such an amazing experience there. I can truthfully say that I haven't felt the spirit so strong as I did there. We took our investigator Ramona! She was questioning before whether or not she should be baptized on Feb. 28th! So we told her to keep praying and the deciding factor would be how she felt in the temple ;) haha.
We watched the full-length Joseph Smith movie with her and she told all of us after. "I don't want to be a friend to the church, I want to be a member." It was so cute! We were all so happy and so proud of her. She's gonna be a fantastic member!!! Also, our investigator Arthur had his baptismal interview yesterday and he passed! He will be baptized this Saturday at 9 am :) He is 75 years old and just amazing!! After his interview he told us that we should start teaching his wife, that when she hears about eternal families, "she'll be sold." haha. I have never seen someone so excited about the temple and family history work!!
There was also a really cool experience where we were trying to heart attack our new investigators door. She showed up to her house though so it wasn't really a surprise, haha ;) Anyway we started asking her about what she believed. She told us how "the bible was passed through many hands and that it was like telephone how the truth was changed. However, that somewhere out there is the truth, but we don't know where to find it." Does that sound familiar?? haha My companion and I about died because that is exactly how I teach the Restoration to people :) So as you all can see, she is super prepared!!! I will have to update you how all of that goes!!!
This week was just a huge learning experience for me and I am just so happy here!! I love the people here and I am trying to make the best of my (probably) my last transfer here :( Love and miss all of you!! And I hit my 6 month mark on Friday!!! :D
