Week Before The Baptism
This week has been one of the busiest weeks on my mission yet. We have taught a ton of lessons. Our investigators are very spread out, and the weeks we dont have the car they always want to meet more. We love meeting are investigators several times a week. It shows they are committed.
Walid passed his interview on Friday. His baptism is Saturday at 10 am. He is very excited and so are we. He loves the Ward members so far. Walid is 20 years old and he said something really exciting last week. He said "I keep considering going on a mission". He says "You and Elder Gowers are so happy, I wanna go and help people too!" He is fasenated with the church and the Temple! He loves the temple. He was excited for family history work and we started him on that only to find there are only 3 names since he is from Lebanon.
We are excited for his baptism on November 15th. We also have an interview for Shay and Trevayln there baptism is on November 22. They are 9 and 11. They are both so excited "to have their sins washed away". The lord is hastening the work.
Member referrals are the best. This week we got one for a man named Ricahrd Duesingamia he is from Rwanda Africa. He is mentally handicape we think. The referral said he wanted a bible. So we took him a bible and taught the restoration to his whole family of 7. They are so awesome! They gift of tongues is real. They have such thick accents and sometimes they struggle understanding but they spirit speakes to everyone! No matter what language we speak. They are an awesome family. We have biked ourselves ragged this week. We are excited to have the car this week. We also saw Barbra several times this week and she came to church. She is a 66 year old widow. She is a catholic and about as stubborn as they come but we love her. She is defiantly Iowan. (meaning she can talk for days) Im so grateful for the chance to serve a mission. Im learning so much. Im thankful for the Holy Ghost. When you bear sincere testimony you cannot discredit they power that comes from the holy ghost! Keep reading and prayinng! I hope all is well! Winter is around the corner! Love you all!!
