Crazy week here is So Cal.
Start off with a long story of our new investigator. Begins with her walkin’ down the beach in Crystal Cove and she finds this bottle, and inside there is a story of how this family lost their 17 year old daughter to heat stroke. The family then writes about the Plan of Salvation and how they know they can be together forever. Then there is a number to call if it’s found. She didn't call it and just set it on her dresser.
4 years go by and she is at a Pickle Ball tournament in St George. She had been divorced for about 2 years, but anywho, she met a guy at the tournament, and he was a member of the church. He came down to visit and they went to the San Diego Temple and she then referred herself to the missionaries. We show up on a Tuesday and teach her the Restoration. It went great and we set up another meeting to come back on Saturday. We teach her about the Plan of Salvation, bam! After we teach her she says she wants to be baptized, my sock are knocked off! Then she says she wants to do it the 21st, which is right around the corner! By this point I’m blown away, I’m like halfway across the room! Insane. But wait, there is more...her cousin (in Utah, Mormon) is getting married the week of Thanksgiving, she is going to go visit, and she wants to be baptized there! Man my socks, shoes and tie are gone at this point. So she’s going to be baptized in the crib (the cradle of Mormonism) on the 27th! So pumped! Also the family that sent the message in the bottle is coming too. They are so happy their message in a bottle worked. I could see this story going in the Ensign(:
Anywho, transfers are today I lose Elder Robinson and Elder Ferguson is stayin with me in Alicia Park. Super excited! This week we did some tracting and I knocked on every single door that had an American flag out front (: Surprisingly there were on ton on that street, lol. Yesterday we had a Zone BBQ and it was sweet. We played flag football afterwards for 2ish hours. It was a riot!
Hope ya’ll enjoyed story time! Have a great week!
