August 3, 2015

Another great week here in the West Virginia Charleston Mission! So this week we had some pretty awesome lessons! There is this recent convert named Rhonda that was baptized the week before I got to this area and we started teaching her the new member lessons. She is so solid and is looking for opportunities to share the gospel with her friends and family! She told us about how she is feeling the influence of the Holy Ghost more in her life and it is just amazing to see the amount of progress that she has made! She has a pretty cool conversion story. Yesterday, we went to see the family that we put on date to be baptized on the 29th. We taught them the commandments and they are so solid! They love when we come over and teach them, it is really cool to see how much different they are since we have been teaching them. They seem much more happy and eager to learn from us! Seeing them progress in the gospel makes every single hardship that I have experienced on my mission completely worth it. I know that this church is true and everyone can benefit from it. I know that diligently studying the scriptures and praying morning and night will help us all come closer to our Savior. Heavenly Father loves us so much and he wants to bless us, but he only can when we keep the commandments and do the things that we know we should do. I love you all and I hope that all is well! Be sure to email me! :)
