Hebrews 10:38-39 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man adraw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
But we are not of them who adraw back unto bperdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
This week was actually a fantastic week! We set four baptismal dates! One with XXX and XXX XXXX for March 7, XXXX for March 1, and XXXXX for sometime in April. Things are going great! We got two new investigators earlier this week. XXX and XXX XXXX. That was a very interesting night. They are a referral from a lady in the ward here. We contacted them a couple weeks ago and gave them our phone number but they called back and invited us over for dinner on Tuesday night. So we went not really knowing what to expect. They were really nice, really welcoming and very open to learning. We had an amazing conversation about the plan of salvation and what happens to us after we leave this life. They said that the things we taught them brought more peace to their minds and hearts over the recent loss of their daughter. One comment they made really made Elder Stapley and me think. We asked them if they had ever met with missionaries before. And their response was, "we didn't think missionaries ever cared to meet with us.” These poor people! They have been struggling with the deaths of loved ones for years. Finally we were able to share this message with them. A message that brought peace and joy in to their life! It made us realize that we really don't know whom of our friends and loved ones needs saving. We just don't know until we open our mouths and talk to them, invite them to come unto Christ. I hope you are all striving to do something everyday to bring another closer to Christ. It brings so much joy to your life and the lives of others.
One fun fact, Yesterday I had dinner with the Sherwoods! haha! There is a Sherwood family here in the ward! I forgot to tell you a few weeks ago we went on splits with Brother Sherwood. So it was Elder Sherwood and Brother Sherwood going around visiting people haha. It was awesome. We don't think we are related, mostly because of the whole Strickland controversy haha. But they are an awesome family.
Today will be a great day. We are getting together with our whole zone to play volleyball and other games. Should be a great preparation day! Thank you so much for all the support you all give me! I love you all so much!
