...And in this corner......The Spirit of Invitation

Well this week was apparently really slow, but it didn't feel that way at all. We are doing tons better at talking to everyone. We really worked hard.  The numbers just didn't show it.

We were able to teach our less active member. Shelby is doing great! She really has a strong desire to go to the temple, which I am so stoked for! She came to church again the other day which was awesome because we get along with her so well. We are trying to work with her to help get her husband, Brian, baptized. He says he agrees with all of the church's teachings. The only thing he has a problem with is Joseph Smith (which is really the problem the entire world has). We are hoping he will truly pray about it and seek for that answer. Easier said then done...I guess.

On Friday we had a lesson with Meuoy. We were able to bring Brother Rogers with us. We taught Meuoy about how following the commandments can really help people feel good and enjoy the happiness that God wants us to have in our lives. It was definitely one of those lessons that I can't remember anything that was said, because we were just being guided by the spirit. The only part I remember was when we extended the baptismal invitation. Meuoy just replied with a "Lets do it!" That's when the whirlwind of the spirit just came from a corner of the room and flood all four of us. It was so sick! He will be preparing for his baptism which will be held on the 24th of September.  The other cool thing was even Brother Rogers remembered how awesome it was to feel the spirit that strongly.

Elder Perkins B-day was this week on August 27th, so obviously we ate at the Galloway's because they are amazing.

On Sunday, Meuoy was able to come to church for the first time, which is a step in the right direction. We are carrying our way onward....son! I am looking forward to seeing Meuoy at church more and more. I definitely can't wait for his baptism.

Alright well that was our week have a good one everybody.
