January 4, 2010

We have an ami, Xavier, that i amazing. The only problem we have had is he disappears then for a few days then reappears. And he had disappeared for a day or two this last week and Thursday we were at the church waiting for an appointment that didnt show when he called and said he was close by and wanted to stop and talk to us. So we waited. We ended up having such a cool lesson with him. We talked about Baptism and confirmation and ended up engaging him to be baptized. He is ready. He has now come to church the last 2 Sundays and for the full 3 hours. We are hoping to fix the date for his baptism this week.
We don't have very many progressing amis right now and are really trying to search; Heavenly Father really has helped us this week to see miracles. I know that he guides us in this work. Sometimes we have to find a lot of crazy people before we find the peopel that are ready to listen to the message of the restored gospel. There were a couple days that we werent out much just because Sr. Brunt really was sick but when we were out we had a greater desire to work and talk to people. its like that in life if we are giving all that we can Heavenly Father is going to bless us. Sometimes it does feel like nothing is happening but He knows best.
Yesterday was kind of weird I was sitting in Sacrament meeting listening to the testimonies and everyone kept talking about their new years resolutions and being better this year. There were some that talked about their trials of the last year and how much they have grown. It got me to thinking of where I was a year ago. It is hard to believe that a year ago I was still getting ready to come out in the field. My life has completely changed. I had been thinking during the week of how i had changed recentely but couldn't really see any changes. I realized yesterday and even today how much I am growing and changing for the better.
