That is Spanish for last week was the best week ever! Last week was a very good week! we had a lesson with Bill, and it was one of the most spiritual lessons i have ever had! If you can't remember who Bill is, he is the one that is almost 7 feet tall, around 400 pounds, and he is just a teddy bear. The Missionaries have been teaching Bill for 8 months now and he is just so ready to be baptized but he has anxiety really bad and so he has never accepted the invitation to be baptized. Sister Standing and i were determined to put Bill on date though because we knew how ready he was. we prayed, fasted,studied, got awesome members to come with us and prepared all we could to have the spirit with us. Even that morning we read a talk together called the divine companionship, which is all about how we need to have the holy ghost with us as our third companion so it is not us teaching the lessons but the holy ghost and when this happens, that is when lightning strikes and the person knows without a doubt that what is being said is true. That was our desire, for him to feel the lightening! For the lesson we read 2 nephi 31 with him and as we read it, the room was filled with the sweetest spirit! I don't even remember what was said or anything but all i know is that the spirit was working through Sister Standing and i and the members like i have never felt it before! Sister Standing invited him to be baptized and he said he was not ready but we through the spirit testified to him that he was ready and that he knew enough. At the End he was soooooo excited to be on date for baptism and he even picked his own date for April 19th. That is a special day for him because that is the day when he graduated boot camp many years ago! We are so excited for him! it was the best lesson ever1
Last week we also started teaching a 10 year old boy named porter. his Mom is a member of the church and she has just started coming to church again! and were teaching his dad the lessons too but he works in texas for a month and then comes home for 14 days. But Porter wants to get baptized really badly and he wants to get baptized on April 6th and his dad will be home then and so we are hoping that seeing his son get baptized strengthen his desire to follow the Saviors example too!
The work here is going super well here. The members are starting to get more fired up about the work and i am loving it! My companion Sister Standing is awesome! we work really well Together and i am learning alot from her!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Love Sister Lindmeir
