WE GOT AN IPM!!!
After searching two whole weeks with Rowley, and several weeks with Ledesma, we finally found an investigator progressing to be baptized this month!
On Thursday, when we did weekly planning, I started looking through old investigator records and came across Shakti an eleven year old whose parents have been less active for 2 years, and we were teaching over a month ago. We thought about visiting her and got pumped!
So we went immediately to their house without an appointment, and they let us right in. We found out that the other Elders had visited them in the morning which was rather cool. We told them that we felt the need to visit them for Shakti, and we taught them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Shakti gave all the perfect answers while her parents got mixed up and answered wrong. But it was awesome, because we fulfilled our purpose as missionaries teaching the doctrine of Christ, and preaching repentance unto the people.
At the end, we invited Shakti to baptism for the 23rd of June, and she said yes hesitating a bit, but then committed herself with the help of her family. They arrived to church 45 minutes early on Sunday, all as a family, so that was incredibly awesome!
I'm definitely learning much more about the Faith. To NEVER doubt, believing Only, and also ready to accept the WILL of God in the end. Faith is sooo much more than I thought, it’s a much bigger concept that we need to grow every day of our lives.
