September 7, 2009
On Tuesday we had our District meeting as we were finishing we were getting ready to take a picture in the foyer of the chappel when this lady comes to the door. As we started talking we found out she was baptized almost 20 years ago but has been inactive for wuite awhile. She said she had been looking thought her things and found the picture taken the day of her baptism and she wanted to come to the chapel and see if anyone was there. The craziest thing is Sr. Folituu and had already planned to pass by her house that afternoon. The Lord works in mysterious ways. We ended up going to her house the next day and talking with her. She told us she feels completely alone in her life. It was cool to just talk with her and get to know her a little bit. We invited her to the baptism of the elders on Saturday and she came. It was amazing the difference in her face. Elder Blosil and I were talking about it. Going from Tuesday to Wednesday it was like there was a light that had turned on in her she was filled with hope and a little happiness. She came to church with us yesterday and we are going to see her again tonight. It is really cool to see some one refind the joy in the gospel.Our amis Celine is progressing really well and is so excited for her baptism. Yesterday at Church i could tell something was bothering her. As we talked she said that it was like a constant battle between the little angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other all week. The adversary is working his hardest with her. We talked and gave her some suggestions of things to do like pray; read the scriptures or even call us or her Husband when she needs a little encouragement. I was thinking about it Satan knows when we have made a decision to do something right and between the time we make the decision and the time we actually accomplish our goal whether it be baptism or going to the temple or on a mission. he is going to try us and work as hard as he can to get us not to do it. I think of a a quote also that says "It is important to know that Satan exists and has power but is even more important to know that God Exists and has more power." We just have to decide who we are going to listen to or what power we are going to use.
