Week 13 πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯FIRE!!πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

 This week has been so πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯FIRE! Last week on Thursday we met this guy named Artur, who invited us in because we were so speaking Armenian. He listened to our message and was skeptical but was willing to have another lesson. The next day we met at the church and were able to show him around. He loved it! He was talking about how he felt the spirit and he was so happy! (This was all in Armenian by the way so it was difficult to understand) We called him the next day, Saturday morning and asked him if he would attend a baptismal service that day. He said yes he would and he showed up! (Later he told us that his mind told him to say no because he didn't want to go but his mouth said "yes" he would go, I thought that was cool!) Haha but during the baptismal service he said that he felt the spirit so strongly that he wanted to get baptized that day! We set him a date for the 4th of August. The next day he came to church, and he loved it! Everyone in the group sucked him in like their own and he was so happy. He told us that he wanted to meet with us every single day until his baptism so he could feel the spirit until it was able to be with him for forever. It made me so happy! So through this whole week we have been meeting with him every day and he even quite smoking! He is a GOLDEN INVESTIGATOR! We asked him what he would do if somebody told him not to join the church and he said that he would spit in
their face, (not really Christ-like but at least he is dedicated). The next lesson we taught he told us how he walked up to some Jehovah witnesses and told them that he was "Mormon". This Saturday was amazing! We took him to the temple with the Armenian group and walked around and I got some fire pictures. He is so awesome. We moved his Baptismal date to the second of July! He can't wait to be baptized!

          Our less active members in English work have been progressing really well and one of them (Sister Valassco) gave herself a date of August 7th to come back to church! She is awesome because she has been working with another less active as well! And Sister Brown has been activity coming to church and she is receiving so many blessings because of it! Woot woot!!! In the Armenian group we've been having more less active members show up and the group is doing a lot better. I have a testimony of hard work and exact obedience. Standing up for what you believe and not falling into temptation is so important. If we constantly push through the thick and the thin we will see miracles. And it goes for everyone, not just us missionaries. I've seen lives changed because of it, including my own life.

            I am just so pumped right now to be doing the Lords work. We have been putting in our 110% effort and we are finally starting to see some of the blessing that has come from all the work. The mission is on πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Fire! It doesn't mean it isn't difficult though. This has been some of the most challenging months of my life so far. I've
humbled myself to the Lord and he has shown me my weaknesses. Now, I have the opportunity to strengthen those weaknesses... Ether 12:27 definitely my favorite scripture and definitely one of my favorite chapters!

Hey! Everyone who is reading this remember to read your scriptures!!! Most importantly read the talks from the General Authorities!!! If someone were to come up to you and ask you what has the prophet said in the past two General Conferences what would you say? Remember to study, learn, and pray. Always continue to do your best and don't think you are too busy. We can improve every day no matter how busy we are. Keep the fire going and remember our Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ. I love you guys! Peace!!!!
