Well folks... for the first time in his life,,, Elder Carter ate.... a salad... ):
But the week was amazing! Had lots of opportunities to meet lots of great people! We started out by having whats called a trade off, so I went with Elder Hansen to his area! It was great! We had dinner with a family who has had more struggles than anyone I have ever met, and they are trying so hard to choose the right. It is truly amazing what happens when we depend on our Savior, Jesus Christ. Our trials don't go away, but He carries it on his back. Through him we can do anything. Being a missoinary has been the greatest blessing EVER!
So our investigator Ian, has a baptismal date for the 29th.. We are getting there! He is a very intellectual person, so feeling the spirit is something he is a bit skeptical about, but he said that whenever he reads the Book of Mormon, he feels that peace in his life! That is the spirit! He is progressing so well!
Daniel Zotti, is another kid we are teaching and he is amazing! He came to FHE and Church and he said he loved them both! He has said many times that he has felt the Atonement of Jesus Christ in his life before, but he never knew what it was, but the spirit he feels is very familiar to him. He is such a cool guy and is really into music like me! We hope to set a date with him this week!
There are so many amazing people in the YSA! It's truly been a blast to be there and I have seen many miracles take place.
I want to give you a challenge. Read Alma 32 in the Book of Mormon tonight, and pray to know what you can do in your life to increase your faith in Jesus Christ!
Let me know how it goes! I would love to hear from y'all!
