This week in the land of Powell

Our newest convert is one of the most wonderful, jolly people anyone has ever met!! This last week before her baptism she was going through quite a hard time. She had everything go against her. Her family, and her friends. BUT, she knew in the end that she could rely on the Savior. We had a very heart warming meeting with  her the night before her baptism. She gave us the reasons not to be baptized and reasons to be baptized. We bore powerful, simple testimonies of the the Savior, and His redeeming love. By the end of the meeting, we contacted everyone who had ever taught her with us, and asked them to keep her in their prayers. The power of prayer certainly is real. She came the next morning, with her husband, and her best friend. We knew that it meant the world to her. The next day at church, she mentioned something that I have been thinking about a lot since then. She mentioned that she has been very independent when it comes to emotional welfare. She said "I felt stronger letting him help." I was thinking about this on a much bigger scale. Us, and our Savior.

This transfer has been one of the most trying ones. In ways that I won't say now, but I learned a lot.

Our next most progressing investigators is so wonderful!! We have had wonderful lessons with her. The other day we talked about the Doctrine of Jesus Christ in 2Nephi 31 Click here for a link to the scripture. We asked her very inspired questions, and she was putting the pieces of the puzzle together. She started saying things like " So there was an apostasy!" it was all jolly!
Over all this week has been wonderful.

I hope that everyone has a great week!
