Medford is quite literally on fire...we had 107 degrees on Friday, Saturday
was 105 and Sunday finally cooled down to 102. Thank goodness for
shade! Well, not really. It's still hot under the shade.
We had a miracles happen this week! We got a referral, a SELF referral
mind you, of a guy named Jason. We met him Monday night. Jason wants
to make his life better and his daughter, JC also wants to know more.
Jason has a son too, named Ryden. We taught them the whole Restoration
on Monday and they accepted to be baptized! On the first lesson!!!!!
We taught them the Plan of Salvation later in the week and they
accepted to be baptized on September 17! They said they would come to
church, but they didn't make it. 😒 We have a lesson later with them
tonight on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are so excited!
If you remember Enrique and Ruben, we tried all week to have lessons
with them. One day we had a lesson with their dad, Ben. Ben was
drinking and told us his whole life story in an hour. He's had a rough
life. But we told him of the blessings of the gospel, of how his life
will literally change if he would just listen. He got sick this week,
so that also made it hard to meet with them. But Enrique has been
reading the Book of Mormon! 😆 We will probably have to move their
baptism day back a bit, it depends on what happens this week!
On Friday, after District meeting, our Zone leaders did an inspired
pump up meeting! We talked about setting goals and how we can achieve
ANYTHING with the Lord on our side. We need to change our thoughts to
become great, we have to literally believe one thought: I am NOT an
That thought has completely changed what I do throughout the day. We
chased people down the street because the spirit prompted us to.
Eternal Salvation cannot wait. Fear is of the enemy and we are
fighting for the God of Heaven and earth- Jesus Christ. We cannot wait
to share the gospel, and I will not be average. With His help, I can
rise to become that missionary I always wanted to be.
