It's been a great and busy week! We had a baptism on Saturday. The person being baptized was Dawn. She became friends with this family in one of our wards and she just fit right into their family. She started coming to church and she loved it. She was excited every week to come to church. We started teaching her when we stopped by one Sunday to talk to Sis. Johnson about one of her other friends that she invited to learn about the gospel, and Dawn just ended up being there when we stopped by. Sis. Johnson told us later that that day when we stopped by she was wondering how she was going to invite Dawn to meet with missionaries and then when we came it was the perfect opportunity. She has been very prepared to accept the gospel into her life. The baptism went very well and some of her family was able to come. I ended up singing I Feel My Savior's Love. We were also able to get one of our investigators to come to the baptism. This is a huge step for this investigator.
This Sunday we sang the second verse of If the Savior Stood Beside Me in one of our wards primary program. It went really well. I never thought I would be part of a primary program again. Another one of our investigators came to church and stayed for all three hours. They have come before but left right after sacrament meeting. They also came to a new member fireside which is for investigators, recent converts, and less actives. There were a lot of exciting things that happened this week.
This next week is also going to be very exciting. Elder Porter in the seventy is coming to do a mission tour on Thursday and Friday. So we get to hear him speak for an hour or two. The stake that I serve in, the Highland East stake, is having stake conference this weekend. The presiding authority at the stake conference is going to be Elder S. Gifford Nielson. He spoke in general conference last month.
It's amazing how our Heavenly Father knows us and wants to help us in all that we do. With Holy Ghost we can be directed in this great work! Thanks so much for all your prayers. I love you all so much!
