May 30, 2016 FIRST Baptism This Week

Hi everyone!                                                May 30, 2016

This week was so great! It was super busy but that's the best way to have it. Our investigator got baptized on Tuesday! 

Newest member:  Cherokee 

The traffic was bad so she got there a little late so we got nervous. It all worked out though. She would come with her grandma when she was younger and so her primary teacher spoke. It was so cool to see how much each of the ward members love her. They have been so great to reach out to her. Most of the youth came it was a huge crowd all there to support her in this life changing day. Guess who else came?!  Her step mom! She is a less active but she came and stayed the whole time! It was so awesome! Our president’s wife came, too. It was so
awesome to see all those who came to support her. She wasn't able to make it this Sunday, so we will have her confirmed this coming Sunday.  We are so excited for her.  Sister Jones' brother put together a beautiful picture for her of the temple and Christ.

The weather has been so beautiful this week!  We did our studies outside on Sunday. We also went tracting with the sister Training Leaders! We found 2 new investigators! We are so excited! It was pretty funny when we went tracting, we went to one house and the lady comes to the door and I recognized her. The other sister I was with wasn't my companion and so I said "Hi sister...... But I couldn't remember her last name hahah. Turns out we tracked into a member. It gets better though. She was a member we had tried to see a couple of weeks ago but she didn't want us to come by but when we came that day she let us right in! It was so cool! We had an awesome chance to get to know her better. She went to school at BYU and that is how she came in contact with the church. She said she had truly felt the spirit and there was no way she could say it wasn't true.  She is such an incredible lady.

On Sunday, we were going to go see a referral but she wasn't home so we felt like we should go see a member we had been working with. I truly know we were guided by the spirit to go see her because she was so happy to see us. Cool thing too, she had taken the challenge we gave her to read the scriptures when she feels down. She was so much happier and I know it is because the gospel brings so much happiness In our lives. I have seen how the Book of Mormon blesses our lives and brings us closer to Heavenly Father. I feel so much happier as I come to more fully understand his plan for each of us.

It has been a great week and I am so grateful for this chance to serve the Lord, to strengthen my testimony, and to meet some incredible people! I hope you all have a great week!

Love, Sister Goudy
