Wohoo 5 months down and many more to go!
This previous week was one of the hardest but in the end a very rewarding week!
Monday I started out with Elder Lane in the hospital in the office of Dr. Schwartz with strep throat because of previous symptoms BUT priesthood blessings from your companion and prescriptions are the best because it was gone in 2 days!
Tuesday we began the work and we really struggled getting our appointments to follow through the remainder of the week. We had many people drop and which was super depressing, but we were diligent and we were able to reach and exceed our goal of 15 lessons with investigators with a member present. We got 22 and with all of the other lessons we taught we had 34 lessons which isn't at all bad for the week.
We had an untimely run in (not car accident) but we had an angry taxi driver that obviously doesn't like missionaries try and hit our car and windows with a metal rod BUT missionaries are protected and we got out of there ASAP. Missionaries are truly protected by the Lord and I've had many other experiences already on mission but not all will be revealed at the present time ;)
We had another 18 investigators at church which was awesome
BUT the highlight of the week was......
Phillip's Baptism!!!! Wohoo!
Phillip is the best! He's 19 and he's truly gained a strong testimony of the gospel. Teaching him is always so fun and he was really ready for his baptism. He had the happiest grin on his face when Elder Milne pulled him out of the water yesterday. (Yes we actually have a real font haha) He shared a brief but powerful testimony after and I can't wait to confirm him and have him receive the gift of the holy ghost! He's super excited! It'll also be great to see him receive the priesthood and see him grow and progress in the gospel!
KwaMagxaki is the best!
Until next week!
