Well this is the last email you will get from me as a
missionary. I am so excited to see all of you again!! I miss you all a
Hope this is a good one. I sure think it is.
have worked hard until the end. This last week was fantastic. Elder Simister and I have been teaching so much. We still walk a lot and we do
not let anyone pass us. We teach a lot of people on the street and also
those that we are working with. We taught Uli and Stephen the German
couple and we will teach them again. We also found a family this week
and they are very ready. The wife had problems with the bible because
she felt that there was a lot of stuff missing from it. We were so
excited as we shared the restoration with them. We will see them this Thursday.
We taught Chris and got him all ready for baptism. Chris was baptized on Saturday July 5th.
I was able to baptize him, it was wonderful. After his baptism we
finally got to go meet with Joshua Giesbrecht, the media referral we
received. So we went and taught him and well, he taught us the
restoration...haha. he told us his story: he said that as he was starting
to search for the truth that he was confused about why there was so
many churches. He said he came to a realization that there was an
apostasy and that the priesthood was lost. He said he came to realize
that God had a physical body and that he was a resurrected being. And
that God and the Son were separate. So he got introduced to the church
through YouTube and he said that when he started learning about the
doctrine of the church that everything just made sense. He said that he
felt like he knew all of this already and that he had been taught it
before (pre existence).
So we left that appointment amazed. Elder Simister and I said
he needs to be baptized. So we called our mission president and he said
baptize him. So we talked to Josh on the phone about being baptized and
he said yes. So he came to church yesterday
and loved it. After church we turned on the water to fill the font and
as it was filling we taught him all the lessons, president interviewed
him and then we baptized him. What an incredible experience, I am
still in shock. We met with him on Saturday at 7 and then baptized him on Sunday at 4, not even a 24 hour period! What a great way to finish my mission.
I testify that the work is hastening it is real and the restoration happened.
Love you all and cant wait to see you!!!!! :) :)
