On a brighter side, the diligent work of missionaries previous to myself and my current companion has yielded a baptism for us to assist in. Marlene and Tayla are going for the baptism this Saturday and they are excited for it! We are also. Tayla is excited for it and we are teaching the lessons that she hasn't quite had yet. Last time we where at her home we taught the WoW, and Tithing. It really was great to see her understanding increase. Her mother Marlene loves it to because she is enjoying refreshing on the things that she once was so familiar with. Her confidence grows as she asks questions to deepen her understanding. The spirit is strong in those lessons because so much learning is happening.
Luke and Niya are doing all right. They are progressing slowly and Luke is having a challenging time with giving up smoking. It has been a part of him so long and trying to give it up is really challenging. We taught him the WoW officially when we went to go visit them after church. We also gave look a Priesthood blessing so he could get through the withdrawal symptoms. We are going to try and read the BoM with him throughout the week to give that spiritual strength that he needs to keep at.
Thats about it for the week. We are working hard! Lots of challenges, but ultimately these challenges bring us to our knees so we can seek for guidance.
Thanks for all your e-mails.
Love you lots!
