Hiya family and friends,
This week was pretty darn amazing! Let me tell you. It all started off on Tuesday. Tuesday was Zone Conference, where all the zones in the north of the mission come together for a conference. I can not explain how powerful that meeting was. President and Sister Pilkington are AMAZING speakers! I am so glad I came to the England Leeds Mission not because of the location, but for President and Sister Pilikington, as well as the other missionaries I am serving with. Within these first few weeks out in the field I have learned sooooo much!
Many miracles happened this week. The first miracle was with Syllene. We meet with her on Friday and had a lesson with her. Sister Lybbert and I, read the introduction of the Book of Mormon and 3 Nephi 11 along with her. We answered all the questions she had (which was a lot) and she understands everything so well! We also taught her about prayer and personal revelation. She understands that prayer is very important. If she came to know that the church was true, she said she would be baptized. We have another appointment with her on Thursday. Can not wait to see her again!
Another miracle was on Saturday. We spent all morning calling the Keighley ward to personally invite them to a Mission President fireside Sunday night. After that long morning, we finally go out of the house and decided to knock on some doors close to our house.We got on the bus and since it was a very fogy day, we couldn't see the bus stops. We ended up missing the stop we wanted to take. So we got off at the next town which was Collingworth. We did not have much time, because of Eddie's baptism, so we prayed and on the first door we knocked on she let us in!!!! As soon as we said Jesus Christ she let us in! I was so surprised! Normally in England we get the door shut in our face but not this time. We taught her a little bit about our church and showed her a Mormon Message. She asked what the difference was about our church and other church'sand we said many things but one was that we have a living prophet who receives revelation from God for the church. She is very interested and we are seeing her again tomorrow morning. By the way her name is Gemma.
The other miracle was Eddie's baptism. It was a wonderful service and the spirit was so strong! Afterward he was smiling from ear to ear. When he received the gift of the Holy Ghost he was smiling even bigger! He came to the Mission President's Fireside that night and loved it. The fireside was wonderful! Again, President and Sister Pilkington are AMAZING speakers!
Well it was a wonderful week. I am afraid I have to go.
Until next time,
