This week was transfers. AND……WE’RE BOTH STAYING HERE!!!! (woohoo!!)
This week wasn’t super interesting. Ups, downs, the in between. We do have one girl, Adilene, who is really close to baptism. She is completely ready in worthiness, knowledge, and testimony. She just needs to make the decision. They are the family that has been going to church every Sunday for about a year. Her mom, unfortunately, is one of the people that has taken huge steps backward. She decided that she didn’t want to meet with us anymore. She doesn’t think there’s a difference in all of the different churches, and she doesn’t want to be baptized. But her daughter, Adilene, is ready. She went to the baptism that the Elders had this weekend, and afterward all of the people at the baptism asked her if she was next, and she said “I hope so.” We talked to her afterward and she told us that she needs to be sure to make the decision for herself and then ask her parents. We invited her to pray specifically about baptism and to think about the decision, so that the next time we talk to her we could talk about it even more. I really feel that she’s ready and that we can help her to make this step very soon, maybe in the next few weeks. She is more ready than anyone else I have ever met. I am excited to see how things go, and to see her to continue to progress.
There really isn’t much else. I love you all! I pray for all y’all all the time. Stay strong!
