i am going to make this email very short and simple today! it was a very bitter/sweet week last week! we were able to put Mary one of our investigators on date for baptism . Mary has been taking the missionary lessons for two years, she has come to church every sunday for two years and she is even a visiting teacher! we have been praying and fasting for her to know what we could do to help her take that next step towards baptism. we finally invite her to be baptized on march 1st! she was so excited and said yes but then a couple of days after we put her, she made an excuse to procrastinate the date which was a bummer. Then we put another one of Our investigators that we have been working with for awhile on date for baptsim but we can't get her to come to church so we have to change her date too. sometimes agency is a bummer and i just want everyone to follow Christ! haha :)
Last week we visited a lot of people that have had so many hard things in there life happen. like one of our investigators mom died from ting poisonous mushrooms when she was a teenager and had to raise all of her siblings. Another lady we go and see has so many health problems that the only things she can eat is vegetables. Another lady we visit is hoarder and has so many sad things happen in her life. A guy we teach can't go anywhere but sit in his house most days because he has such a bad back. Then another lady we see had an abusive husband, she cant have kids, she had foster kids but they were taken away from her, and she just lost her favorite dog because it got hit by a car.
Even though all these horrible things have happened to these amazing people they are all okay. They are all okay because they know that their Savior Jesus Christ knows everything that they went through and everything that they will ever go through. They know that everything that is unfair and unjust about life will be made right through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I just love the gospel so much and the hope that it gives to all of us!
Love, Sister Lindmeir
