Why Hello Family and Friends :)I don't actually know where to start with this last week so I am just going to begin somewhere and end somewhere and hopefully all the information in between makes sense. I don't know how organized it is going to be though so sorry if I confuse you haha.
I will quickly say something about Jakkob. We were planning on teaching his mom but she wasn't home and so we met him instead and he invited us in. He had a few friends over and so we were very impressed that he allowed us to come in. He is 17 and is into drugs and that kind of thing but he is trying to stop and is very respectful. He is hard for his mom though. We taught him the Restoration and he was very attentive and answered the questions very well. We invited him to be baptized at the end of the lesson and he said when he knew that it was true he would get baptized. It was such a wonderful experience and definitely a miracle from Heavenly Father. He even said the closing prayer and his friends were still there! They didn't participate in the lesson but that did not stop Jakkob from listening. It was very neat and he impressed with his integrity in that moment. I will let you know where that goes though!
Thank you all so much for all you do. I love you all and I hope that you know that! It is hard to express everything on a mission because there is not much time to do it but I hope you all know that I really do appreciate your support and prayers and love! I know that this is where the Lord wants me to be and this past week has helped me develop a much greater faith and trust in Him and is timing. I am doing things that I never thought I would be able to do. But I am doing them with HIS help and with HIS strength. He is merciful and He is so loving. I love my Savior and I am so proud and blessed to be one of His missionaries. Love you all!!
