Kia Ora Everyone!
I hope everyone has had a good week! and a good Thanksgiving, to be honest I totally forgot about Thanksgiving... I guess that is what happens when they don't celebrate it.
Anyways this week was just another normal week in the mission filled with lots of lessons and talking to lots of people. We had a lot of really good lessons this week and a few of the members were able to come out with us right when we needed them too which was great!
One night we went to visit a family we teach and when we got there the Dad wasn't home so we couldnt go inside but luckily right when we got their one of the members who lives just down the street texted and said that he was available to come out for a visit with us! so we ran over to his house and then ran back to our investigators house started having a lesson and then the Dad walked in and so he was able to sit in on the lesson which was good, and the lesson was really great the spirit was super strong and at the end we invited the mom and the dad to baptized in January!
We now have 10 of our investigators set for baptism for the coming months which is super exciting since i should be here for most of them, we are going to work super hard with all of them and i know that when we do all we can that Heavenly Father will take care of all the rest!
Probably the highlight of the week was yesterday and Saturday our 9 year old Investigator Wiha got baptized and that was so awesome to see! She is such an awesome kid and was so happy after both her baptism and her confirmation, and now she is officially a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! It was a really great day both of her parents are members but not active it was good to see her mom at the baptism it was a little sad though because her dad didn't come, that just shows how awesome she is she comes to church every week with one of the members and comes for all three hours! that strengthens my testimony!
There were also 7 other baptisms in the Zone this last weekend which was awesome! I love watching people get baptized. It is so incredible it literally saves lives.
Well sorry this is really really short it was a busy week and its going to be a busy week this week with transfers, nearly half of our Zone will be leaving so it will be a fresh start for a lot of areas i'm super excited for the transfer ahead. I am especially excited for Christmas what a wonderful time of the year this is! While we should always remember the savior every single day of our lives Christmas gives us that time to refocus on him. I hope everyone will really make an effort to focus even more so on the savior this Christmas after all he is the reason for the season! I love you all and hope you all have a good week!
