Wow, this week was incredible. Saturday and Sunday we had Stake Conference and President Crockett and his councilors were released and a new presidency was called. Elder Hallock and Elder Sabin from the Seventy were there to preside and speak. President Crockett actually invited us to join his family, President and Sister Lewis, and Elders Hallock and Sabin for breakfast at his home before the Sunday session. It was so cool to sit with such great leaders of this church and learn from them. I wish I could just tell you everything they told us but I just don't have the time or finger strength. Thank goodness for my mission journal.
After Stake Conference on Sunday we talked with a former investigator, Megan, that attended both sessions. Megan was taught by the missionaries three years ago this July and was prepared to be baptized until she faced opposition from family members who didn't approve of her decision. She moved away for a while but came home. Now she has been coming to church the past few weeks, at first with her friend Shannel Hepworth, who just left on her mission. When we first taught her again she didn't want to commit to baptism, but she felt the promptings of the Spirit yesterday and realized that she just needed to do it! So our district leader interviewed Megan after conference and she was baptized last night by Bro. Hepworth. What a miracle!
This work is true!
