Another week!Yes, the week has already passed and now I am here to report. So, over the past couple of days we have been seeing some amazing stuff happen. For one thing, we have two young boys, Jordan and Phillip, who are sons of James, who was baptized earlier in the month, who are getting baptized this upcoming Sunday. They have such a strong desire to learn about the gospel and their father sets a good example for them. They love the gospel and they love the church so much. And since James has the Aaronic Priesthood, he will have the opportunity to baptize his kids. My heart is hurting right now just thinking about it. Then there is also Barbara, who was baptized two weeks ago. I remember when we first started teaching her and how she was somehow shy about us teaching her. Now about 7 months later, everytime I see her, she is glowing with the spirit. She has never looked happier then she does when she comes to church. She even came to stake conference yesterday, and the stake center is really far. It just goes to show that the Lord works in his own time. Even if they are not fully committed at first, if you give them time, they will come to feel and understand the spirit when they exercise their faith. She is a person I will never forget because of her faith and love for Christ.
