This week was on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where do I even start this week? Sister Morris and I have been applying Faith as a Power to see someone be baptized on the 23rd. Well on Tuesday Sherrie came to the Relief Society activity. We met Sherrie when we first got to Gaffney but she was very active in her own church but loved Mormons. So we only saw her every once in a while to say hello. Well she came to the activity and told us she quit her church because her preacher started saying things that aren't true. So she came to us and wants to learn more. Well we had an appointment with her on Saturday and put her on date for baptism on the 23rd. She is so excited and we went to ward council yesterday and everyone already knew about it. Her baptism hit facebook and spread like wild fire. One of her old missionaries is flying out to see her be baptized. She cannot wait!!!
She is so prepared because God has been preparing her for years. I have a testimony that conversion does not come all at once. But planting seeds is SO important. My mom and dad have told me that I always need to be planting seeds because we don't know when they will be nourished and harvested. We just know that they will be. When we are examples, when we are honest, when we are true, when we stay true to our covenants, we are always planting seeds. We are all in this work together.
Sherrie was the highlight of the whole week. So my testimony is this regarding my experiences and lessons this week. This church is the same church that Christ had when he was on the earth. The foundations and the principles are the exact same. The thing I have learned the most on my mission is this statement: Divine truth is absolute reality. Everything that God had asked us to do is for our benefit in the hereafter. He loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son. How blessed are we that our own Deity has asked us to call Him Father. I know this gospel is true. I will never be able to adequately express in words the love I have for this gospel.
God Be With You Until We Meet Again
