Hey there friends family and neighbors! I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to Easter this weekend. I am looking forward to it. This week was so good, and had some bad as well. So we shall get stuck in shall we.
|Easter Treats we got from an awesome family here in York|
This week we were able to see some amazing miracles. One thing I love about being a Zone leader is we get to go to the baptisms in the Zone and this past week we went to one of a lady named V.......... And she was so nervous to get baptized but she finally got into the water and the spirit was so strong. Wow it was just awesome!
Speaking of baptisms. A........ our investigator who was supposed to be baptized, something happened and we had to delay it, which is the saddest thing ever but then we were able to reschedule her for this week. It has been a real challenge but we are trying to hard to help this girl. So pray that it happens this week.
For Y...... our other investigator she is golden. She is getting baptized on the 19th and she is sooo good for it. We are not worried in the slightest. We took her to a mission home fireside on Sunday night and she loved it. Not only that but members were so great to her! Wow it was awesome. But Y........ is on date for after the transfer, so if you pray for anything pray hat me and elder Ferrell will stay together here in York and so we can see Y...... get baptized.

But one thing I have thought about was something our Beloved prophet said about the Book of Mormon. I read some of the Book this morning and found this,
1 Nephi 6:4-6
4 For the fullness of mine intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and be saved.
5 Wherefore, the things which are pleasing unto the world I do not write, but the things which are pleasing unto God and unto those who are not of the world.
6 Wherefore, I shall give commandment unto my seed, that they shall not occupy these plates with things which are not of worth unto the children of men.
Look at this. Everything IN THE BOOK OF MORMON has something for us to learn. All of it, every single scripture verse in the Book of Mormon has worth. I have absolutely learned that truth here on my mission. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it truly can as Nephi said, persuade and strengthen us all in our faith in Christ. Please read it, study it, and pray about it and you will see wonders in your life!
Love you all! Hope you all have a great Easter applying principles of peace from the Prince of Peace!
