Jan 2, 2017 -- I Believe In Miracles

It truly has been a fantastic week and Sister B and I have been blessed with so many miracles together.

We truly have been working together to "not run faster than is needful," especially since this week I have come down with an awful cold/flu bug that I can only describe as an animal living inside of my chest. But, that has not stopped the work from progressing. We still have been finding, and teaching everyone we can about the restored gospel.

This week we found out that A is going to be baptized on the 27th of January and we have found two amazing investigators who want to be baptized! We found H on the square with his cousin and he had been to church a couple of times. He kept saying over and over again that he knew he was in Utah to learn about this gospel, so that he could make his life better. We called him and he said his first prayer out loud asking for guidance and the spirit that was present was tangible. I feel so grateful to be able to participate in teaching him.

Then on the last night of the Christmas lights we found T! T is 10 years old and his parents are members of the church. He wants to be baptized so badly and his parents have been looking for the sisters in their area to teach him. We were able to teach a quick lesson on Temple Square and will now be sending the sisters over to teach T and hopefully soon he will be baptized. It really is amazing to see the light of Christ work inside children as they are able to recognize truth.

I'm grateful for every second that I am a missionary and for the great blessings that the Lord pours out upon us.

We then had MLC this morning (Missionary Leadership Council) to train on how to be Christ-like leaders through the example we set. The example we set is extremely important and has such a profound impact on the people around us.

Also we have spotted Elder Holland, and Elder Oaks in just the past 3 days and received a package meant for Russel M. Nelson. You could say that we're pretty important people.

Love you all. Have a happy New Year and remember to set specific stretching goals!!!!
