Walking on Water

Elder Sheppard in the forest

Who has the better ape face?

Holy cow! Another week has come and gone! It has really been great here this week! It is starting to get colder here, but the people seem to be a bit warmer! This week was actually really good!

So, the highlight was teaching this 17 year old guy named Harry. Harry is the co-worker of a member, and he is super solid. The member had already given him a Book of Mormon and he went online and started talking with the missionaries on mormon.org. Then sent the referral to us and we went and taught him! He loved the Restoration, and even though we taught him in a coffee shop, he felt that it was true. When we invited him to be baptized, we were like, "When you come to know that this message is true, would you be baptized?" and he was like, "Of course! I already know that it is true. I just need to learn about it now!" So he has got a baptismal date for the 4th of March. He will need parental permission, but I think he will be able to get there! So that was our highlight! It was so awesome! 

This week really strengthened my testimony in the sense that the Lord makes us wait. He likes to see if we can endure. And when we do, he richly rewards us for our faith and diligence. If we always got what we wanted, when we wanted it, then we really wouldn't learn anything, now would we? The Lord is the Gardener here, and He knows what is best for each and every one of us. All we gotta do is hold on, and press forward with steadfastness in Him. (2 Nephi 31:20-21) Love you all! By the way, Elder Sheppard is great. We laugh and so much fun all the time! I hope you enjoy our photos of walking through the woods.
