So that's been really interesting. It's pretty nerve wracking up until we're in the lesson. We just wondering if we're doing enough of our part. But once we're in the lesson, it's all goooood! (we're talkign 30-40min lessons)
WE committed one of our investigators to baptism!!!! Aug 31st!!! But we have soooo much to teach him. His name somethign like Kim young Sheik. really hard to romanize. We feeel soooo good. The Lord is truly blessing us for our faith and diligence.
Probably the coolest thing this week? Elder Richard G. Scott came for the Tuesday devotional. And I CALLED IT! Rumor was that it was going to be an apostle. I said Elder Scott. Hands down. And it was.WOW. It was amazing. He talked about pray. I don't have time to write much about it. But he brought an awesome aura of love with him. It was palpable. At the end of his talk, you could see him pausing to listen to the spirit and he kept adding additional words of wisdom. He said that with "apostolic authority" he pronounced a blessing upon those of us learning a new language. If we had faith in God, we would receive the gift of tongues. As we had faith and strove to better our relationship with our companions, the language would come easily! It was amazing. Words can not describe the feelings that were present. I know there were angels around us. He also said that he felt that his wife was with us as he spoke and that's why he had been so emotional during his talk. As he walked out, he stopped and yelled "BE GOOD!"
I've regained weight, but had to tightened my belt a notch. Consider my six pack has never looked better, I'd say it's muscle. I love the erg. I've been working on my 2k time. Of course all there west coasters here have no idea what i"m talking about.
Anyway, I got to go. I get to go to the temple today! I love you all. Keep praying for me. I's amazing how prayer can bring personal revelation if you make it more specific, meaningful, and more of a heartfelt conversation with your Heavenly Father. VOCAL PRAYER! KNEELING PRAYER! Keep it up.
