This week was a great week. Elder Bailey and I did good work. On Friday we had 11 lessons total so we needed 9 total for Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we taught 6 member present lessons. The most I've ever taught in a day. It was awesome. We ended the week with 14 member present lessons and 23 total lessons.
Also on Thursday we did the Stop Smoking Workshop with XXXX! He committed to a week of no smoking! He is getting baptized on December 7th hopefully. If he can quit smoking and stay non-smoking for these next three weeks he will be getting baptized on that date! It's so awesome! He is amazing. We were talking to him after church yesterday and he was talking about how he has always known that there should still be a prophet on the earth. The things that we teach in this church make sense! This is the way that it is supposed to be! Ours is the only doctrine that makes sense with the totality of scripture and knowledge in the world. I love sharing that message with people. And I love building their faith in the Savior.
The work here in this area is going so well. We have XXXX who wants to be baptized but is having a hard time coming to church. We are working with her on overcoming that concern. We have XXXX who accepted a baptismal date but then realized they would be out of town. We are still working on getting her a new baptismal date. And there are many really solid potential investigators that we are beginning to work with that have a lot of promise. Elder Bailey and I are trying our best to work hard and to work smart.
This is the hardest but the best experience of my life thus far. There is no greater work than this. This is the Lord's work. Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration. The tool in the Lords hand in this great and marvelous work. Jesus of Nazareth is the Savior and Redeemer of the world and He stands ready to succor each of us in our time of need. I love you all so much!
