"Indecision mars all success: there can be no good wind for the sailer who knows not to what ports he is bound" Oliver Wendell Holmes
First off Birthday Shout outs to my cousins Madison and Tabitha! I hope you had a fun celebration!
So this week has been very exciting. We found a "chosen soul" or a soul that has been prepared. He found a Book of Mormon 10 years ago. He started reciting the story of Nephi and the brother of Jared to us. It was way cool. He has a testimony of the Book of Mormon so it should be easy to teach him. He came to church yesterday and really enjoyed it. He even said that the Book of Mormon has helped him in his most dificult times in his life. Wow talk about Escogido.
We also had a baptism this week. A little girl named H. She was super excited and has a lot of support from her friends. Her mom gives a little support but is an inactive member and doesn't want her daughter to follow her example, so she was a little hesitant on having her daughter baptized.
We told her that she (the mom) needs to be a good example for both her children and that the church is the perfect place to learn how to be a good example. It was hard for her because she is separated from her husband and is raising 2 kids on her own. I hope H. can be an example to her mother because sometimes I think her mother needs an example more than her daughter.
Today we had a zone activity and later went out to eat. One Elder, the zone leader, Elder B, took on their challenge. He had to eat a 7 layer hamburger with bacon and cheese, all in 20 minutes or less.
Also they had a milkshake called the Big Bertha. 3 liters!!!
I hope everyone has a great week and may the Lord bless you with success in all you do. Love you all.
