Kallie sent me a picture of her portrayal of a lion for Activity Days. I thought she looked adorable. Her cute little face reminded me of when she was a little girl. It sounds like she had an eventful week.
Here is her post:
This week was just amazing and amazing things happened!!! Maria was baptized!!! It was great! She has and my companion and I have been stressed all week. Satan defiantly knows when good things are going to happen because he tries everything in his power to stop good things from happening.
Monday: Was a day of service and finding. We had several appointments lined up and they all fell through so we were left trying to figure out what to do and who to see but God has his plans in line and knew where we needed to be and when. We met a referral named Jakeisha and was able to teach the restoration with her and she said she would be baptized when she knew the church was true. not if, but when. :)
Tuesday: P-Day! Today we ended up spending our day in Concord painting. It was adventurous! We loved it That night we had coordination and was able to plan Marias baptism a little more! :)
Wednesday: It poured rain almost all day! We were able to see a less active who is starting to come back to church and she introduced us to her sister who Is a non member a couple weeks ago and she wanted us to come back today and also to teach her daughter So we sat down and taught them both the restoration and they accepted baptismal dates. The spirit was so strong in there home and they are truly excited to start making more covenants with God :)
Thursday: Today it poured even harder than it did on Wednesday. We were driving through buckets and buckets of water being poured on us as we were driving. We had several members have there home struck by lightening! It was so scary and the thunder was SOOOO loud!! We were all safe though!
Friday: We did a bunch of service today for this lady named Ashley. She calls us her Mormon Friends. She is adorable! We are trying to start and develop a relationship with her first before starting to push religion on her.
Saturday: MARIA WAS BAPTIZED!!! I had to dress up as a Lion for an Activity Day thing for girls aged 8-12 in the stakeSaturday afternoon. The theme was Wizard of Oz. It was really strange walking out from church clothes to being a lion. I didn't like any minute of it.
Sunday: Was great! But, Maria didn't get confirmed!!! She has things come up and wasn't able to make it, we were so sad, but its okay, she will come next week!! :D we will be meeting with her a lot this week to keep her on the straight and narrow!!
Scripture of the week:
Mosiah 23:21 :)
Thought of the week: "Selective obedience brings selective blessings."
