Hi everyone! Another week has passed in Australia, and it really felt like a fast one. The days seem really long, but when I look back I felt like I just emailed yesterday! So we had the baptism for our investigator, and her husband baptized her and the bishop confirmed her the following sunday! It was awesome and a lot of her family was there, who are nonmembers. Her father even spoke, and he is a pastor in another church I think. He talked on baptism, and it was a really good talk! The whole program went really well, although we may have flooded the font a bit lol.
Anyways, things are pretty average again this past week. Still door knocking, visiting people, and trying to increase the amount of investigators we have. We've met some crazy, and some really nice people while door knocking. It's funny to see how sometimes the most intimidating people are the nicest and are willing to just talk with you for a bit.
One thing that I've learned this week is about relying on the Holy Ghost and our Heavenly Father. Sometimes we aren't always confident in something, for me it's sometimes teaching people, yet we can rely on the Lord to guide us and help us. Also, when we are very successful in what we do, it's important to remember how the Lord and the Holy Ghost played a part in that. When the people of Alma had been under bondage from the Lamanites, and couldn't pray openly, they prayed in their hearts unto the Lord, and He lifted their burdens and provided a way for them to escape later on. This shows us how they relied on him in all their doings, and how the Lord was quick to answer their prayers. Even after they escaped, they immediately prayed to the Lord, praising and thanking him, which shows that not only was the Lord quick to answer their prayers, but they were quick to show their thanks. I think that's something that everyone, no matter who we are, can do more, whether it is relying more on Him for guidance or remembering to thank Him for what He has done for us.
Thank you all for your support!
