This week has once again been rather enjoyable. Of course, it was Christmas, so that was always a good thing.
As far as the work goes, this week we had some great things happen. We committed one lady to prepare to be baptized, after reading 3 Nephi 11 (Where Christ visits the Americas and talks about Baptism) and talking about the importance of Baptism with her. She asked us how she can prepare for it, and we were more than happy to give her an answer.
The same night, we were found (That’s right, we didn’t do the finding) by a man who recently moved here from Houston, who has been investigating the church with his entire family for 4 years. He (and his family) want to be baptized, and he told us so straight up. The one thing holding them back is a legal marriage. They have 3 children and have been together for 12 years, they just haven’t actually been legally married. So, we’re getting to work on that.
But yeah, there’s exciting stuff going on here!
Other than that, we spent part of the day on Christmas going around in shorts and flip-flops, because it was nearly 70 degrees. That was very exciting. We also enjoyed very much talking with our families, of course. Last night we worked at the temple lights, and they were very, very busy. They had a concert by a Stake Choir from Tempe, and it was extremely impressive, at least for what it was.
But yeah, that’s round about it! I hope that you all have a Happy New Year!
