We had a wonderful week this week, but i can't remember too much because we have been TIRED!
First of all.... HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS EVY!!! I LOVE YOUUUUU!!!! It sure is great to be eight, huh??
Big points and fun experiences:
-David received the Priesthood and will be baptizing his son, Juandavid on Saturday!!!! :)
-Marlien's husband (one of my recent converts, she is from Suriname) would hardly even talk to us while we were teaching her. Now? He is being taught by the elders and has a baptism date for the 10th of Feb!!! SOOO AMAZING!
-My testimony is thriving!! Through this gospel and through the Book of Mormon these people can have all the answers that their souls are looking for. We were teaching this man named Edwardo and he asked us a really amazing question. He asked us " why, Why, WHY did God, the creator of ALL, not send His disciples or SOMEONE to the other continent???" It was amazing! Sister Davidson and I just smiled really big... Also, earlier in the week we were teaching someone who lost their sister to cancer a couple of years ago. She asked us an amazing question. She explained that she had asked this question to sooo many different people in different churches and no one has given her a straight up answer. She asked about how everyone says that when someone dies they just go straight to heaven, and how that has never made sense to her because she knows that there will be a judgement day. She wanted to know what happens in between Heaven and the time of death. It was amazing, and we finally had her answers. Something she has been looking for for a long time.
-The Old Testament is one of the best books ever. I love it so much and read it in my free time. I am such a nerd now. Happier this way though :)
Life is so good and I am happy! The gospel changes peoples lives and i get a front seat showing of it everyday! :) I hope you all have a great week. I love and miss you all so much!!
