So many miracles!

It's been an amazing week this week! So many miracles! C finally wants to be baptized!!!!! We had been trying to set a baptism date with her for Feb 28th and yesterday she finally said she'd be baptized then, yay! We're not sure if she'll be able to because she had a drink of alcohol yesterday so we may have to bump it back a week. If not, though, this will be a hectic week trying to get everything ready for her baptism this Saturday! Please pray that she will stay strong until then and continue to have the desire to be baptized.

Another miracle was meeting our new investigator, M. He was born and raised Catholic and is the fiance of one of our other investigators who we were meeting with before. We finally met him and he loves it! After our first meeting with him he was saying how we already have him converted and was asking how he can join our church?! I think it's the first time I've had to actually tell an investigator to slow down toward baptism rather than dragging them towards it, haha! Unfortunately, he wasn't able to come to church this week because of the weather.

Also, a really funny experience from last week, actually, but I forgot to tell you about it. So we were at C and J's meeting with them and their 4 year old was showing us the papers they had colored in Primary that day. At the bottom of one was some lines where you finish sentences and one said, "The Savior helps me..." and he wrote, "button my pants." Hahaha! Kids are awesome!!! No wonder Christ wanted His disciples to let them come to Him.

Well, that was my week. It was great, as you can tell, other than when the weather went from perfectness to snowy, icy, cold in a day. I also had to give a talk in church, which wasn't too fun. I still hate to speak in front of a lot of people, unfortunately. Love y'all and miss y'all!
