Time is flying!

This week was great, we just got to work! No conferences or trips to Surabaya! This week we have been working a lot with a new investigator, Dewi! She is a single mom and her husband is not really around, her son is 6 and is really cute! Dewi is Muslum and we've been teaching her about Jesus Christ and the restoration of his gospel and she is so excited to keep learning, she loves it. Our first lesson with her, we asked her to try to pray at the end, and helped her with how to pray. She said such a simple, amazing prayer and she started crying after and said she felt so happy, and felt something she has never felt before. We helped her understand that was the Holy Ghost...ah it was such a cool experience. She works every Sunday, but she is going to ask her boss today to have Sundays off so she can come to church! We actually know her boss and he loves us! We met them both because they work at this little pecel (type of indonesian food) place that we tryed a couple weeks ago and we've come back multiple times because it is our favorite place now! Her son goes to a Muslim school and after she prayed the first time, her son said, "Mom, don't pray like that, it's bad!" So sad! We need to help him! One other story from this week...the other Sisters have been working with a part member family to help get the two kids baptized. They are 13 and 9. They had a date set for yesterday and then on Saturday they called and cancelled. The Sisters were crying and were so sad. Sister Suryani and I had the idea to call Daniel and have him go over there with the Sisters and help them understand that Satin often try's to stop us before we do something great! I forgot to explain last week that Daniel moved to Blitar the week before his baptism which is about 2 hours away from the church. He catches a train at 4am to come to church now. So they called him and he came all the way from Blitar to help them and...they were baptized yesterday!! So awesome! Daniel was also confirmed yesterday and Ibu Diah was also at church so she got to see that! Okay I'm out of time, but I'm still loving it and I love you all!!
