April 7, 2014
This week was really awesome. We got a call on Tuesday from an investigator of the other Elders; he wanted to meet with us! It was really sweet because the Elders were having a hard time teaching him for his work and all that but we met with him and put a baptism date with him for Saturday. It was a lot of fun. We were working with him every day. Every night when he got out of work he would call us and then get on his bike and we would meet up in the church. It was sweet seeing him progress during the week. We had originally placed the baptism date for Sunday but he called us and told us that he could not on Sunday but only on Saturday so we had to start running around on Saturday getting everything ready so that he could be baptized. It was a really awesome day. The conference was sooo awesome. I really love it. I liked what Elder Bednar taught about sharing the yoke of Christ. Even though we can never pull the same share as he pulls but he invites us to share his yoke. His burden really is easy and his yoke is light because we are on his side sharing it with him. I really needed to learn that. I feel like sometimes in life the things are really hard to continue. We have to recognize that Christ is there to help us but we have to let him help us. Oh we also had interviews with President this week; I love interviews with him. It was fun to sit and talk with him. He started explaining to me about all the changes he had seen me make here in the mission. It is crazy how much one really changes when they give up all their desires to the Lord and try to look for what he wants! Life is GOOD! It's going to be a great week.
