Sharmmany :) June 13, 2016

Dear Family and Friends!

So quick update on Ron and Maribelle! We taught them the gospel of Jesus Christ last Monday and they again loved it! When the spirit was strong, we invited them to be baptized! But then Ron had a question.. He doesn't quite get the priesthood yet.. We did our best to explain, but that's a hard thing for a lot of people to get. So we left them with some scriptures to read and invited them to pray about it. They of course, being the awesome sincere people they are said they would. We also invited them to come to Sharmmany's baptism, but they didn't respond. We are planning on stopping by this evening and trying to help them overcome their concerns. We loved teaching them! so hopefully they had a spiritual experience reading the Book of Mormon this week. 

Next, Sharmmany got baptized!!! AHH!!! It was so great! We were a little nervous about it all happening, because we weren't able to meet with her as much as we would have liked. So we met with her the day before she was going to be interviewed and went over some things with her and she did great! We felt a confirmation that going ahead with the baptism was the best thing for her! So we did :) She passed her interview and was baptized on Sunday :) It was a great baptism and the ward came to support her a lot :) it was cool to see :) She was SOOO happy afterwards :) I have never seen anyone so happy :) It was such a blessing to be able to teach her and watch her be baptized!! So that was great :) 

We also had an amazing Stake Conference this weekend! We had a general authority visit and that was awesome! I could listen to him speak forever! :) He gave lots of good teachings. Hopefully I'll be able to share some at my homecoming talk soon! We will see! We have been very blessed this week and I have seen how the Lord uses us in our weaknesses. He is able to do His work. Even if we, His servants struggles, He will bring others the gospel through His spirit. I love being a missionary and feeling the spirit guide and direct me! :) 

Next week is transfers! My last transfer in the field! I know I'll stay here in Silver Lake! I have loved this ward and trying to find people to teach amidst all of the cows and fields :) haha It's a fun area! Love you all have a great week :)
