This week was really sweet! We had some breakthroughs and we saw some real miracles! It also is crazy that the mission is splitting this week and that the Mehr's are gong home! I am going to miss them bad! My new mission President is President Harrington and he is going to be coming here on friday for a little meeting and then he wants to go teaching with me and Elder Beck for an hour. So we are lining up our superstars for that hour! It is crazy how fast time is going and that the mission split time is here!
Janais is still doing well and we are just working with her! Her grandma still thinks we are hilarious and gives us a good self esteem boost!
We are teaching a girl named Odelia and she is sweet! She is 18 and super smart and excited to learn. We found her a little while ago while I was eating something called an ice lolly, (Similar to a popsicle) and she walked by and we talkedto her. She seemed pretty cool but busy and so she told us to just give her a call. Ha I would like to have a dollar for each time I heard that one! But anyway on Monday we had a ton of things fall through so we decided to give her a call! Lo and behold she was able to meet with us and she loved the restoration! At the end of the lesson we told her, "You remind us of a girl at the church, her name is Brittany." Come to find out that her and Brittany are like best friends from school! Ha crazy! A little bit about Brittany is that she just turned in her mission papers and is a superstar in the branch. So we obviously couldn't have a better fellowshipper! So we called Brittany and told her and lined it up so that she could come teach Odelia with us the next time! We went by on thursday with her and a guy named Silas and we had a great lesson about the Book of Mormon. It was really cool to see Brittany teach her friend about the Book of Mormon and it was a really spiritual lesson! Now we move on to Saturday, Plan of Salvation lesson. We had a feeling this would be good and it did not disappoint! She loved it and it answered a lot of questions that she had! We then invited her to be baptized on the 1st of August and she paused for a while, took a deep breath, (Elder Beck and I were getting kinda nervous) then she said, "I'm so excited!" Now everytime she talks about it she gets super excited! She went on to tell us that she had wanted to get baptized for a while and for whatever reason it just hadn't happened. Then she said something that I just loved! She said, "Maybe the Lord has just been preparing me for this moment!" The spirit has been teaching and preparing her a ton! She is one of the coolest people I have taught on my mission! She also came to church and loved it! She is really excited for next week! So yeah that is pretty sweet! Tender mercy from the Lord!
I love this work! It is going great! I love you guys! Have a great week!
With Love,
Elder Smith
