Ok first, please forgive my fogetfulness last week…
Happy happy birthday to London, Kelsie and Carter!!!!! And Happy anniversary to Josh and Kelsey!! 🙂 What a fun week and I had fun little reminders on my calendar that made me think of each of you on these special days! I hope you were all able to do lots of fun things!!! I love you all!!
How fun to see about the first day of school and how harvest is going! I found a cute picture in an Ensign that has a picture of a girl standing in a wheat field that says `The ultimate reward of righteousness is `peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come.“ It has helped me stay in the fun harvest spirit with all of you, as well as my fervent prayers for all of your safety and happiness!!
This has been a great week here!! We have truly seen blessings this week and I am so grateful to be here in the front row of so many miracles and blessings!! This week we were able to find a guy that is 22 years old who is so prepared to hear the gospel! He was a referral from his cousin, and she went with us to teach him. We taught him during the week and on Saturday night he was able to go to a baptism that they had in another ward. Then after, we were able to teach him about the Restoration and the lesson went so great! At the end he was sharing his testimony with us about how he knows that he needs to pray and that he knows that Heavenly Father will answer his prayers. Then on Sunday, his cousin was late so he came to church alone and really felt the spirit so strongly!!
We had also been working with a less active family but found out that the husband was never confirmed. They have been coming to church and we were able to finish all of the lessons with them and rescue the wife, but we still weren`t sure if he was going to be able to be baptized. Yesterday morning they told us that he can, and that he can be baptized this Saturday!! We extended the date to him right after church and asked how he would feel about being baptized again so that he could also be confirmed, and he was so happy. He said that he would be so happy to be clean again and wants to live a different life!! It really ha been a miracle to see how the gospel has changed and influenced their lives!!
I hope you all ahve a great week and look for the small miracles in your lives everyday!! I pray for you always and love you all so much!!
Love, Hermana Hawkes
