One of the Greatest weeks ever!!

What an amazing week. Everyday miracles!! Man, I'm just so happy! It's going to be hard to only pick one or two experiences to share!! I want to tell you about Stefani though...she is the mother of a recent convert and she has learned with the missionaries on and off for about 2 years now. She has never prayed about the message or felt that she should be baptized. We started visiting her last week, but we were on splits both of the times we planned to teach her so i wasn't able to come. We visited her on Saturday and we just had the impression to just ask her about her life and her experiences instead of jumping into the lesson. Long story short, she just opened up to us and cried as she told us about her life and how she really felt. We just felt the impression to ask her right then if we could kneel and if she could pray and ask her Father in Heaven if this gospel is what her and her family need. If it is the truth. As she did, the spirit just came into the room and all of our eyes were filled with tears as she offered the most sincere prayer I have ever heard. When she finished we didn't way anything, she knew that Heavenly Father had heard and answered her prayer and she wants to be baptized. That just strengthened my testimony of the power of the Holy Ghost and the power of prayer. Ibu Lussy is still really progressing, and Laura and her three kids came to church and also came to the baptism after and loved it! The primary sang a song in sacrament and her son Darrel and daughter Daniella went up and sang with them! We love that family so much and can't wait to see them become members of the church and continue to blessed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I just can't express enough gratitude for the blessings the Lord has poured out upon us this week and throughout my mission and life! I know when we give our WHOLE selves to Him...heart, might, mind, and strength, He can make us into someone so much better than we could ever make ourselves. I am so thankful the Lord has allowed me, with all my weaknesses, to help Him in this great work of Salvation. There truly is nothing better. Love you so much!
