It's getting cold and rainy here in Oregon! I'm excited to have the rain and the clouds back! Also, they have Fall here! There is definitely no such thing as Fall in Mesa, haha. The leaves on the trees are turning red! I LOVE IT.
Sister Lovell and I had a busy week! We saw Nita almost every day! Since she's getting baptized this weekend we had to get all of the lessons taught in a short amount of time. We also watched the Saturday sessions of conference with her, and she told us that she was able to receive further confirmation and assurance that this church is true. She loved being able to hear from prophets and apostles! Her baptismal interview will be on Tuesday, then we are taking her to the temple on Thursday, and then her baptism is on Saturday! YAY!
We were also able to watch the Sunday sessions of conference with our investigator Austin. Austin is progressing very well! He's definitely taking it slower than Nita, but is just as excited. He hasn't committed to a baptismal date yet, but he has committed to a baptismal month, haha. He said that he feels he'll be ready to be baptized in October, so we committed him to pray about a date and we'll be following up with him tomorrow. He even went out and bought a new suit! After conference, we asked him what he enjoyed hearing, and he said that he really liked how much the speakers talked about joy. He told us that since he's been learning about the gospel, he has been so much happier in his life! He is a completely different person from the first time I met him. The light of the gospel has touched his heart!
A quote that I really enjoyed from conference was said by Elder D. Todd Christofferson: "Will you not love Him who first loved you? Will you not be a friend to Him who laid down His life for His friends?" I love my Savior Jesus Christ! He has done so much for me and my family, and for everyone! I know that He died for us, and I know that He loves each and every one of us perfectly.
Love you all!
We had to watch the first few minutes of conference out in the rain because there wasn't
a woman in the house yet
We've been heart attacking our members!
