Good afternoon people!
This week has been pretty miraculous.
The biggest miracle was definitely that Stella was baptized and confirmed this week! She has definitely been the most converted convert I've had on the mission. She is amazing. So her baptism went well. Brother Letalu, our ward mission leader baptized her, and the Bishop confirmed her.
So on Sunday, we had Gospel Principles class, and the topic was Faith. The teacher asked anyone to share an example of faith in their lives, and Stella raised her hand. She said that when we came to her door, she felt something different. She said that there had been so many people that have come to her door before, but there was something different about us. So she decided to give it a shot. Then she started hearing what we were saying, and we seemed to have the answers to all of her questions. She said that she was praying everyday to know if she should keep following this, if the Book of Mormon was true, if she should get baptized, etc... and in her words, "well, here I am!" That was so awesome for us to hear. It's been amazing watching her journey to gain a testimony and get baptized.
Now time to get here to the Temple :)
Now for another MIRACLE TIME!!!!!!!!
Immediately after the baptism, we had an appointment with a man named Mark, who I had never met before, but my companions met him one time on exchanges just the day before. He lives right around the corner from us and he is awesome! We taught him the Restoration and he just ate it up! He understood and loved it! He accepted to be baptized on the 29th of April. It was amazing.
Probably the biggest thing I've learned in my mission, and reemphasized this week is that God's hand is in everybody's lives. He is leading people like Stella and Mark to the true gospel of Jesus Christ, and at the same time, he is leading people like me and my companions to success in sharing the Gospel in the times that we need it the most. His plan is perfect.
