Progression Comes Through Obedience
This week has been one of the biggest weeks for us as far as stats go. We've got 3 baptismal dates set; 1 in September and 2 in October. We're hoping they all turn out great! Our investigator we've been working with the longest time (with a date), Connie, has been working to quit smoking and come to church for a 3rd time. Her baptismal date had to be pushed back because she has to come to church one more time and she's working but she loves the members of our ward and really has grown since we first saw her! She's keeping all the commandments (except word of wisdom which she's progressing in) and can't wait to get baptized! We also set our friend Maurice with a date this week. His family got baptized except him and his younger sister with whom we're working with right now! They're so great and he's a great athlete! We set Justin with a date as well this week. His dad has been trying to work with him but nothing progressed really until we had the first discussion with him! He totally opened up and we've really sparked something in him. There was some referrals that came in this week so we've been trying to contact them all. We're getting to it! Most have just not opened the door. But we're trying! The most important thing I learned this week is that prayers really can be answered and real progression can only come through obedience. I love everything that's happened this week and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
