Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever. Alma 26:12

Teaching super simply...(June 8)

This past week was awesome! Ok so Im gonna start out telling you guys about our baptism for this week. Her name is Elisabeth. We found her while knocking doors a few weeks ago. At first I thought that she probably wouldnt progress and that we wouldnt stay much time with her, but God showed me that I should really stop judging people. Youd think that after almost a year and a half on the mission that I wouldnt have that problem anymore. But whatever, everyones got faults :). Our first lesson, she didnt pay much attention and reluctantly let us return. We returned, and returned, and retrurned and to our suprise, everytime that we returned, she did the thig that we had asked of her in the last lesson (Read, Pray - Simple things that a majority of people dont do). We were a bit worried when the day arrived that we had planned to teach her the word of wisdom. The baptism was 5 days away and she still had problems with coffee and cigarettes! We went in, and taught her super simply. The Spirit came and came strongly. We felt it and more importantly she felt it. Since that day, she hasnt smoked and she has stopped drinking coffee too!! Miracle! So ya, this week was pretty awesome. Its funny how the Lord works. He takes the small, simple and flawed and works miracles through them. I know that the Lord loves each and everyone of us and I know that if we really have the desire to follow him, he will guide us.
