September 1 -- Lots of Rain!!!

This has been a really good week, despite all the rain we've been having. We had so much rain on Tuesday and Wednesday that in flooded on our street so much that it looked like a river. We couldn't go out until 5pm on Tuesday and we didn't get to go out at all on Wednesday. And those were both days that we had exchanges, so they were kind of interesting exchanges, just sitting inside trying to find ways to be productive while not being able to go out and proselyte. But it was okay. We had story time on Wednesday with the gospel art picture book, and that kept us occupied for a few hours, and it was pretty fun. But I really have realized how much it feels like being in prison when you're a missionary, and you can't go out and teach. I used to think it would be fun to be stuck inside because of flooding, but I'm really grateful for the days when we can go out and proselyte. 

"This was a good week. We taught brother F, one of our investigators about the restoration, and about the Book of Mormon, and he was so excited to learn about it. He read his assignments and underlined the parts he thought were important, and he had lots and lots of questions. And he accepted to be baptized on October 19. He came to church yesterday, and I think he had a good experience. I'm so excited. He is such a golden investigator. I know he will be a great leader in the church."

I love teaching YSA. Especially when they have the potential to go on missions.

We've really been blessed. Even though we didn't have very much time to work this week, many investigators and Less actives came to church. We had 13 less actives there, and 7 investigators. It was a good Sunday.

Being a missionary is really a blessing. I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord. I have learned more about the gospel than I ever could have in any other way. I am so excited to continue to do missionary work also when I go home. The gospel really is the best thing in the whole world. Words cannot describe how wonderful the gospel is.
