We taught maybe 3 or four lessons, it was a rough start for sure. So
then we get a call from the secretary of VRM. She said that we had a
referral who called her and asked for missionaries to come by! So she
called us right away and we visited her with in the hour. It was such
an amazing lesson. She said she wanted to clean up her life because
she just got in trouble with cocaine. After talking to her about the
restoration, she asked us why she hasn't been able to hear about the
Book of Mormon until now? We said we were Mormons and she laughed! We
wondered why and she said she went to the first website that popped up
for a free bible. Anyway. She loved our message and she agreed to be
baptized after she gets a testimony about the book. She was super
ready for change and hopefully she will be able to get baptized soon!
The ward here is great. After that awesome lesson we visited ward
members, and less actives. So I think we taught 6 less active lessons,
and guess how many less active members attended church on Sunday? 6.
Ahh it was such a good feeling to have people come back to the gospel!
I was reading out of Mosiah 5 and found this sweet scripture:
"15 Therefore, I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable,
always abounding in good works, that Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent,
may seal you his, that you may be brought to heaven, that ye may have
everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power,
and justice, and mercy of him who created all things, in heaven and in
earth, who is God above all. Amen."

Anyway love y'all a ton! Thanks for all your support and love through
the mission so far!
