This week we had the long awaited, much anticipated, hardly trained for MISSION 5K!
The entire mission was lead in stretches before-hand by President Poulsen and then we were off!
It was so much fun to see everyone running together and then we got bagels after!!! Woop Woop!
Your favorite sister missionary and mi compenara ran at an amazing, astounding, incredible, aw-inspiring 26 minute and 44 second 5 k ran (seriously with the amount of training we had it was aw-inspiring)
This week one of our investigators was baptized!!!!
He attends BYU-Idaho and him and his girlfriend stopped through Temple Square on the way (they were doing a roadtrip hitting all the temples! How Cool!?!?!?!) So we got to skype in and see his baptism! Tears! It was so special and his testimony is so strong, truly inspiring. It's amazing that the Lord has allowed me to be a participant and simply see how He works miracles in people's lives.
Also on a side note the Square is officially dead. As in there is no one to talk to. Which is great because we are scheduled to be on square for at least 6 hours every day. It's good though it gives us an opportunity to really make every conversation count. One thing I have learned is that when we don't invite people to come closer to Jesus Christ, learn more, read the scriptures, etc. then we are automatically saying no for them and taking away their agency. When we put the invitation out there then we are doing the Lord's work and allowing them to decide for themselves.
I have gained and continue to gain such a strong testimony of the power of the Book of Mormon. It truly is the most correct of any other book on Earth and can bring us closer to God by simply abiding by its precepts. I have the goal of reading the Book of Mormon once every transfer (which is every 6 weeks). Every time I read the Book of Mormon I search with a specific topic in mind. The topic of the transfer is Faith. We must simply have faith. When we express our faith and trust the Lord only then can He work miracles with our lives. The Lord can do marvelous works and wonders but we must first do our part and have faith.
Love you all so much! Sorry this one's a little short!!!!
