To start things off, transfers came, and we are staying! Although there are quite a few changes going on in the mission.
So an update on the Elberts: so the last time we had met, we asked them a question about baptism that really made them think. They didn't have an answer until the next time we met, but that was just the beginning of questions that dug a little deeper into the root of the testimony the Elberts have. We were able to testify of the importance of baptism and why it is necessary for us! The Elberts are such a good family, and even though they have a lot of questions, and even some hard feelings for the church, they are reading the Book of Mormon, and our lessons are never in the spirit of bashing. Thank you for all your prayers, I know that our Heavenly Father hears and answers them in His time.
We also had a really good dinner with a member family, the Snows. They have been working really hard at becoming better member missionaries, and their oldest son, Galiger, has three or four of his friends that he brings to mutual. His parents have also befriended their parents, and are introducing them to the gospel through their example! They even opened up their home to us to teach them! Eating with us that evening were Sister Snow's parents, who had recently returned from serving as the mission president in the Martial Islands. They were super insightful on the their mission and their love for the missionaries.
In other news, Happy Halloween !! Haha I hope everyone has a good week, and that you have the spirit with you!
