Things have been going crazy here in St. Maries!
I've got good news, and some bad news, but since I want to end on a positive note, I'll start with the bad:
We had R--- on date for this last Saturday!
At the last minute, her mom talked her out of it, and told her some anti-Mormon crap. Now, we're trying to help her through all of that stuff.
Also, R---, our other investigator, decided to get baptized into the Foursquare Church. A church known for their hatred of the LDS Church.
It's been hard to see them struggle, but they have their agency, and they have a right to exercise it as they want to.
The good news:
C--- is getting baptized next Sunday! We're so excited for his decision, and we are working a lot with him. As we've been teaching him the gospel, he asked me, if after we were done with our missions, we would come back, and be mentored by him. He said he wants to teach us the things we'll need to know if we are going to be ready for the future. He knows leather work, medicine, black smith work, gun making, fire arms, and so much more! He's pretty much the coolest guy I've met, and we're so excited for his decision to be baptized!
The work goes forward, and my testimony keeps growing! It's just like it says in Alma 32! As you exercise your faith, it grows ever more!
Thank you for all your prayers, and I can't wait to hear more from you all!
