This week was amazing! On Tuesday, we were walking down a street that we walk down quite a bit. I noticed a blonde girl sitting down, one who I have seen before. So, I stopped and told Elder Buglass that we needed to go talk to her. So, I went and plopped down right beside her and just started talking to her. I asked her if she believed in God and asked her what struggles she was having in her life and such. I shared a few scriptures with her as well. Long story short, we talked for about 45 minutes. Her name is J____. And, after our long conversation, I just felt like I should ask her about baptism...so, I did...and, she said she had never been baptized, so I invited her to be baptized and she accepted! We even set a date for September 14th! Ah, so, hopefully, things work out there! Ah, it was a miracle. I learned it is definitely important to ALWAYS follow the feelings you get to do something.
Elder Mannucci, from Italy, is our district leader. He and I were on exchange from Thursday morning to Friday morning.
The work is progressing here and I'm so excited!
A ward member, Dave, is an amazing cook and has us over for dinner every week. We ate there on Saturday night. It was incredible! I'll send you a picture I took with him.
Also, I got your package on Friday! Thank you so much for the pictures and the address book! That will be so handy!! You're the best!
I love you all and miss you a ton! Oh, and by the way, mum, keep up the blog. I will do my best to be better at sharing experiences!!
