|oh hey there..."WELCOME"|
G'Day Y'all :) I hope you had a fantastic week!
Our week was c r a z y here and sooooo good!!!! It started off by saying goodbye to my dear companion Sister Griffiths and saying hello to my dear new companion Sister Gray!!! We've had lots of miracles and fun and I love her!!! Plus she's been teaching me lots of English phrases so that's been fun...I'm becoming cultured....
The week started off with meeting with A ___! Let me introduce you to this wonderful person. A ___ is a friend of one of our YSA's here in the branch, C _____. C _____ has been sharing the Gospel with A ___ and even brought her to church. A ___ has absolutely loved everything that C _____ has taught her and even has a Book of Mormon, and met missionaries when they went on a trip to Arizona. Needless to say...she is p r e p a r e d. We had our first lesson with her this week and it was absolutely incredible. It's quite the experience to meet with someone who is totally prepared by the Lord. She is trying to find a faith of her own, so we taught her about Heavenly Father and prayer and challenged her to try praying for herself. AND SHE DID. She said she had the greatest experience/miracle that happened when she prayed and I just can't wait to hear about it tonight as we teach her again!!!
Ready for the miracles? Get ready!! Remember the three amigos from last weeks letter?
Z ___, J ___ and M _____?? WELL UPDATE...THEY ARE ON FIRE!!!! We met with M_____ who was super excited to tell us that he quit his job so that he could be available to come to church with us on Sundays!! WE DIDN'T EVEN ASK HIM TO DO THAT!! It was just something he felt like he needed to do, so he did. Well his boss was willing to work out a deal with him that allows him to keep his job, and only work one Sunday a month. M _____ was amazed and said he felt that God was working that out for him. He basically bore his testimony to us about it and we asked him what his next step was in his progression of his faith. Guess what HE said....b a p t i s m!! :) He explained how he felt ready and that that was what Heavenly Father was leading him to do! Happy to say that he has accepted a baptismal date for April 29th!! And he is SUPER excited about it! And in our next lesson with him after that one, he asked E ____ (the recent convert who brought M _____) to baptize him and you should have seen their faces...it was the coolest moment ever. Since then M _____ has been reading the Book of Mormon and he says it makes him excited, happy, motivated, and feeling good, he came to conference and LOVED it:)
At our lesson with J ___, he said he also felt the spirit after praying to know the truth of the church. Z ___ expressed how he wants to be baptized again and was asking the greatest questions....he's truly searching. Again, we asked them...and they accepted a baptismal date for April 29th too!! Can you imagine if all of these best friends got baptized on the same day?? By their friend who was just recently baptized? When they all found out that they had each accepted the same baptismal date, they all freaked out and got super excited....AND WE DID TOO!
So safe to say it was a great week and conference was the best thing to top it all off. I KNOW that those men are truly called and inspired of God. Every question I had in mind was answered plus more, I felt the spirit so strong, and I know that this is really the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST. He loves you!!!
Love, Sister Burgon*
