He is so prepared; He has a friend in Mexico, who he has known since age 14. He has always loved how her family was so unified and close. He has lived in the United States for over 20 years, but one day he decided to talk to her about religion. She is Mormon and told him to call the number and request missionaries. He stopped drinking and smoking a year ago, he asked us where the church was before we invited him to attend. He works about 80 hours a week… mostly because he doesn’t have family here, and loves to work. He earnestly is just looking for something more in his life and he knows that he found it in this gospel. We have taught him one other time in a members home, and have plans to teach him this week as well. I love that I get to be a part of his conversion process, there is something inspiring about watching someone else discover their testimony for the first time. We will keep you updated on his progress, but as long as we stay ahead of the adversary, he has committed to preparing to be baptized next month. Your prayers will help a lot!
Hermana Trimble is great. She is such an amazing example to me of a hard worker, who understands her duty and doesn't ever veer from her purpose. I am learning a lot from her, how to plan more effectively, how to work with members better.., I have a lot to learn and she has a lot of patience for me.
I am trying to learn the members and the area. It is really neat to recognize all the small blessings we receive; like my ability to navigate, remember appointments, people’s names, etc. It comes slowly but I can see that God is expanding my capacity and ability to do His work.
