This week, I will be brief, as to the fact we were dealing with disobedience in the zone. This is the first time I’ve had to deal with disobedience, and it pains me. Why can't people just go baptize?
Anyway, this week we had the baptisms of Chris & Melanie Woodbury. Their parents are making their way back into the church now. It's nice to see a family brought together for an ordinance of salvation such as baptism. They had lots of extended family there, and their grandfather got to perform the baptism. He had to dunk Chris 4 times, from a combination of miss-said prayers/ didn't put him all the way under.
Saw a double rainbow all the way across the sky right before a meeting with the entire Stake Presidency. The Stake President is an inspired man. He knew almost everyone we were working with and their exact needs. What a job... And this Stake President's area is probably 1 mile by 1 mile. Can't imagine a larger area.
Keep David Pacheco, recent convert, in your prayers, He's fallen back to his old habits, and the spirit of the devil is starting to take over.
I got to do something very interesting in regards to the disobedience that was happening. An exchange on Sunday! I took this Elder with me who has been having some problems to bear his testimony at 6 Sacrament meetings, while attending 5 ward councils throughout the day. It was a roller coaster from 6am till 2pm. It was great fun. His testimony improved dramatically. A testimony can be found in the bearing of it.
Teaching a 78 year old lady named Elna. She didn't come to church do to many, many health reasons, but she felt the spirit during the lesson we had after church and is praying to be baptized on the 16th of June. The Elder I had with me for the day felt prompted to sing a hymn during the lesson. It sure brought the spirit into the lesson.
That's it for this week, busy busy. We're going to go baptize.
