Hey folks, we had a really productive week despite having a new area. I got both packages from Grandpa and Grandma Szendre and Nebeker. Thanks a lot, they're much appreciated.
We invited a 17 year old to be baptized and he agreed, he's a really good kid and knows a lot about the gospel. I'm surprised, because we accidentally gave him the scripture 3 Nephi 3:7 instead of 1 Ne 3:7 to read at home, "Or in other words, yield yourselves up unto us, and unite with us and become acquainted with our secret works, and become our brethren that ye may be like unto us—not our slaves, but our brethren and partners of all our substance." Yeah we didn't actually do that :)
I feel like the Apostles, when Jesus declared, "I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours." It's incredible here, my companion has had 20 baptized people in his last 11 months here. We got over 20 lessons in the last 5 days, whereas in Russia we might get 5-10 lessons a week. Granted about half of those were to members. I think this is going to be a really fruitful area. I'm loving being a missionary, got to go, out of time.
Love you all,
Can you pray for Thomas, and that we might find people ready to accept the Message of the Restoration?
