This week wasn't as action packed as last week, but, just like every day in the mission, there are many stories and experiences to share.
We were able to do divisions this week with some other sisters, and I just have to say that I love serving and learning from others! Each missionary in the world has different family backgrounds, different personalities, and teaches the Gospel differently, but we all teach the same message. Each one of us has been prepared to help certain people while we are serving, helping more and more people come unto Christ.
Alex, our dear friend, is so excited to be baptized this Saturday! We were planning on having his baptism on the 31st, but he practically picked his own baptismal date and told us and his whole family that he will be baptized on the 24th! We made a few phone calls and we are planning on working hard to get the ward involved to help with the baptism and help Alex stay active afterward. Alex has a crazy family situation (his mom is a less active member) and we are going to be planning with the bishop and other leaders to help him grow up within the Gospel. Our job as missionaries is not just to baptize people, it is to keep them firm and strong afterward as well. I have come to realize that Satan works hard to bring people down after they have been baptized, but I have also come to realize that we, with God's help, can work harder to keep our converts active in the faith. Pray for us and Alex this week!

I know this church is true! Reading the Book of Mormon, one can feel the spirit that radiates from each word. Everyone who is willing and has the desire to discover for themselves if our church is true, can read this book. The spirit WILL testify that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, meaning Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, meaning the Lord continues revealing to His prophets, just like He did in the Bible.
Mormon 9 - read it!
I love you all!
