Time To Shine

10 Jun
Well, today is that day. The day when all the elders say they have to start working out for real in the morning to get back into shape. The day when The District videos says it’s time to shine. I’ve only got a quarter of the mission left. But it’s still plenty of time, right? Right. That’s all I have to say about that.
This week was good! We had a weird but good experience taking a walk with our new investigator and her autistic son, Diego. He’s stinkin adorable! My companion told her about how his little sister, around the same age as Diego, is also autistic, and how she loves going to church and Primary and all that. She opened up a lot, and in our lesson afterward, she accepted a baptismal date! We just gotta get the husband on board… We’re gonna need to pray with a lot of faith hahaha.
We got a report from our zone leaders today saying that in 2 weeks, we’ve doubed the number of baptismal dates we have normally. We’re definitely on our way to doubling baptisms in this mission! The Lord sure is hastening his work. Almost every week I hear about another missionary leaving or getting their call, this next transfer around 30 new missionaries are coming in and only about half that is leaving. The Lord has called, and MANY are responding to that call. You don’t need a calling to serve, my friends. Just go and do. Does the Lord not say that His will is that we do many good things of our own free will? Let us not be slothful servants. Choose ye this day to serve your heavenly family.
Love you to bits and pieces, so you should repent a little more this week than you did last week.
