This week was so much better than the last! We had an incredible lesson with our investigator Austin! We went over to teach him about keeping the Sabbath day holy and also about the importance of the sacrament. Austin hasn't come to church yet, so our goal was to help him feel the importance of church attendance. The lesson was going really well and we decided to show him the video 'Always Remember Him' (watch this video, it's awesome!). Before we showed him the video, our ward mission leader Dylan asked him how he felt about baptism and what he was going to do if he found out that everything we have been teaching him is true. And then, Austin opened up for the first time since we've been teaching him! He talked about how he and everyone else in the world has inner demons, and how good it would feel to be clean from all of those things. He wants to be baptized, he just has to figure out if all of this is true or not. The spirit was so strong! After we showed him the video, we asked him how he felt, and he said that he felt very grateful for Christ and grateful for what he did for us. AHHHH! We are SO excited for Austin! He's also been coming to Family Home Evening, Friday night volleyball, and he recently started coming to institute on Thursdays!
Also, here's an update on Ryan, our investigator who was baptized a few weeks ago. He received the Aaronic priesthood last week, has his temple recommend, and has some family names to take to the temple for baptisms for the dead! He is on fire!
Oh! Transfers are here and...Sister Lovell and I are staying together! Yes! We are both really excited and motivated to make this next transfer awesome!
Love you all and have a great week!
