Wow this week has been so amazing I don't know where to start, so I'll just start on Monday.
Monday we knocked into this girl named Katelyn. She came from around the house doing yardwork and basically asked us for a pamphlet and we scheduled an appointment for Wednesday. When we went back for the appointment she invited us to her backyard where the pamphlet was sitting on the table opened, highlighted and underlined with every question in the back answered (that never ever happens). So we taught her about the Restoration of the gospel and she was really interested, we went back two days later with some members from the ward and taught her the Plan of Salvation. During the lesson we asked her that as she came to know the truthfulness of what we are teaching her if she would be baptized, and she said that she would! She is one of those perfect investigators that you don't find very often, she came to church this Sunday and everything went great. I’m so excited to continue teaching her and I'll keep you updated on how it goes.
In other good news sister Church fasted and prayed about asking her "husband" about getting legally married (because she was nervous) and he was supportive! So they should be getting married soon and then she will be baptized! That was so exciting.
Our other investigators are doing great as well and just in general this week we have been blessed with so much success it's really amazing. Last week was kind of hard with the hot weather and what not but it's interesting that after we endure the trail of our faith we then see the blessings and receive the reward for all of the hard work that we do.
It's funny how God knows exactly what will put us out of our comfort zone and it's up to us to rise to the occasion so that we can grow, I have learned so much about the gospel since being on a mission, I feel like I didn't even know what we believe until now, it's weird.
We have been blessed with so much success lately that at this point I'm praying that my Visa doesn't come in until after this transfer, specifically until these people we are working with get baptized. We have some really solid amazing investigators, I'm especially excited for Katelyn, it's not very often you see someone so willing to read the book of Mormon and the pamphlets and everything else it's just amazing. I love being a missionary.
The email is a little short this week, unfortunately I'm running out of time, but I love you all so much! Miracles do happen! And the Gospel of Jesus Christ is so amazing!
Love you all,
P.S. (from Dad) I just checked Chandler’s visa status and it has been processed and authorized. He should find out tonight or tomorrow and be off to Brazil probably this week!!!
