Week 34 [43]: Cooking Lessons and Repentance

Tuesday, July 28 2015

This week we have been so busy! This week was Temple P-Day, so that's why I'm a little bit late.

Right now we have two investigators getting ready to be baptized, so we are trying to prepare them, and we also have a ton of other investigators that were trying to help bring unto Christ! So it is quite the party! I've never been so busy!

This week, we had a fun meal with our Iranian [Iraqi?] investigator. He said he was going to teach us how to cook, and he told us to bring about 10 people. So we had everything lined up, but once we got there, only 5 of us showed up. He was kind of upset, because we promise him 10 people. So I said a quick and very fervent prayer that everything would work out. We felt prompted to call some people, and so we did! Soon after, after a head count, we got exactly 10 people to come! He was so excited! Then, after that, we taught him a great lesson on repentance, and we were able to relate it to our experience we had at trying to get people to come to the meal! It was one of the best lessons I've ever taught. This man wants to be baptized so bad, we might be moving his baptismal date up about a month--so in about two weeks! That's crazy. I've never met someone so prepared. It is such an amazing blessing to be able to watch this man change.

This week we also had a ping-pong party with the members, and that was a blast. It was fun to be able to continue to strengthen my relationship with the members. That about wraps it up this week. I love you guys! Sorry for the short email; we've got a lot of cleaning to do today! We're finally moving over from our old apartment to a new apartment! So that will be nice!

Keep being awesome! If you have any questions, feel free to email me!
