Week 70: Unexpected Surprise
Well, we had a baptism this week. Whahoo!! I can't really take any credit though, because I've only been here a week and so I didn't really help teach this investigator, but she's super, super cute. I don't think I've ever meet someone who cares so much about their relationship with God. Kirsty (name changed) has been brought up in another faith and has even served missions for that faith in some part of Europe. Though the religion she was brought up with was all she ever knew, she had a couple friends from the Mormon faith that introduced her to missionaries. She started taking the discussions and was hesitant at first. All she knew was the Bible to be the word of God, so when the missionaries showed her the Book of Mormon, she wasn't very keen. But after time, prayers, and studying, she came to notice a difference in her life. She felt more at peace than she ever had before. More peace than what she felt when she was serving her own mission. So she looked at her situation and tried to decide what matters most in her life. And in the end, she felt that her relationship with God was what mattered most. So despite her fears of loosing life long friends from her childhood faith, she listened to her heart and got baptized this last weekend.
