"It's Like One of Those Feel-Good Poems"
So, as I described, last week was nuts. Since , not much has changed. By the way, I don't believe I ever sent out thank-you's for the packages. To my family and the Jason Kerr family, thanks a ton! I love the new music! Love it, love it, love it. Variety is much appreciated.
We had a cool lesson with a girl named Destiny. She's kind of like Jeaneth part 2 (Jeaneth was my first baptism). She's 13, her older sister is baptized, then while the Elders were working with the family, the dad got offended by one of the Elders and they stopped investigating. Well, Destiny hangs out at this less-active's house all the time. We showed her the Bible Video when Christ gets baptized, and when we asked her what she thought about it, she said, "I want to be baptized." So this week, we were talking about the Restoration. After Elder Febbo told her the First Vision story using Joseph Smith's words, she put here hands over her chest and said, "It's like one of those feel-good poems." Then we helped her realize that was the Spirit. It was super cool.
So ya, the zone is doing so so. We need to get some faith pumping into them! We are seeing cool stuff happen, but there are many companionships that aren't at the moment. The whole mission is in a bit of a rut. BUT WE'RE GETTING OUT OF IT!
Love and kindness,
