This week has been incredible

June 25, 2014
Hello friends!! 

So, this week has been incredible. Like, I honestly don't have any words to describe how incredible it has been. Anyway, here is what has happened. 

The guy I mentioned last week, is on date to be baptized. He'll enter the waters of baptism on July 12!!!! He is such a cool guy!! He picked out the day he wanted to be baptized, and everything. It's incredible to see the way he has changed. 
So, we have been working with this guy.  He's about 60 years old, and he's terrified of cars, and he has social anxiety.  For the past month we have been asking him to come check out the church, and each time he has made up some excuse. Well, the other day, we mentioned that he could receive a priesthood blessing for comfort. We asked a member and his wife to come, and thankfully, they agreed. So, they come over, and we explain a little bit more about priesthood blessings, and Brother Hoffaman ( the member we asked to come) gave him a blessing. During this whole time, I had this prompting to ask him to come check out the church. I was a little scared because we have asked him SO many times before if he would, and each time he has said no. Anyway, after the blessing, I followed that prompting, and I asked him if he wanted to go check  out the church. He literally hopped right out of his seat, and said "Sure! Let's go!!" haha it was incredible!! We had a great church tour, and he loved the chapel. He is coming to church this Sunday!! That whole day was filled with blessings. 
Anyway, this week was awesome!! I hope everyone is doing great!!
