What an amazing week!! Pak John was baptized yesterday and the baptismal service was so good. I am seriously do impressed with the members of our ward. They have totally taken in our investigators an made them part of the ward family! It makes all the difference in the work! Please continue to pray for Pak John's family so they will follow his example and see the changes he has made as he has embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ. Laura and her son Darrel are super excited to be baptized next week!! All your prayers are helping :).We are teaching our ward mission leader's girlfriend, Carly, and she is amazing! She is Catholic and is just eating up the Book of Mormon and the lessons, we are super excited (along with our WML) with how she is progressing and making changes in her life! We have been working a lot with a less active member named Ibu Yuni, she was baptized less than a year ago and her family was really struggling financially so she got a job and started working on Sundays and cannot come to church. She has asked multiple times for Sunday's off but her boss doesn't like our church so she hasn't been given it. We felt prompted to challenge her to take a leap of faith and quit her job. We promised she would see blessing poured out upon her family and she kept the Sabbath day holy. Yesterday she showed up at church with a big smile on her face and told us she has quit her job and knows everything will be okay. On top of that she brought her friend with her and we are teaching her tomorrow! When we have FAITH the Lord WILL work miracles in our lives!! Next week will be a miracle as we see Laura and Darrel be baptized! What a blessing to take part in this great work!! I know that my Redeemer lives! Give all to Him!
36 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea,let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.
37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou riseth in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
I love you!
Pak Johns baptism!
