Awesome to See People Change

From Elder Bailey on June 1st, 2015

     Well, last week was cool.  I found my wallet!  Also, Bishop Taylor took us to Dillards last P-day and bought us expensive shoes. They are super cool.

     Then, we have been doing work this week to set up teaching for weeks to come. So there is one potential investigator we have that we talked to and made initial contact with.  She is going through a terrible divorce. We shared some words of comfort with her and she cried a little and talked to us about how it was hard to try to be strong for her son.  We bore testimony of the Savior and related her situation to Job.  She cried more when I said Job because that was her father’s story. He died a few years ago.  She needs the gospel so bad it hurts and she knows it.  She is trying to go back to church but to Catholic Church.  So hopefully we can be the guides in the right direction.  Then on Sunday we went by another lady’s house that started coming to church a couple weeks ago.  She is really interested in learning more about the Church.  We knocked on the door and she gave us water.  I felt prompted to say Elder Mauclair is French. Her eyes lit up a little and she started speaking French to Elder Mauclair.  It turns out she is from Haiti and that is super cool too!  

     Also, thanks for the package and the tie.  Elder LeGrand is jealous (we have style competitions and right now and I think I’m winning).  I wore it to the baptism of a man I was teaching in my last area.  He is super cool.  It is awesome to see people change.  

     Also, were you making fun of me with the superman card?  Because if you were it was pretty funny.
