I love seeing the hand of the Lord in His work. This week it has become apparent that one of the reasons why I am here is a man named Keith. My experiences of having multiple surgeries and hospital trips, and the things I learned from them, the testimony of Christ's Atonement (among other things) I've gained from them, have specifically helped him. He was injured in the oil field, and is trying to find a job, and is having intense physical pain. I've been able to testify to him that Jesus Christ has been through everything he'll ever go through, and God is reaching His arms out to him more than ever before right now. I love the Spirit that comes when those things are said. Keith has felt that pure power. He is going to be baptized in two weeks. It has definitely been worth it, all of the craziness of being emergency transferred here to get my foot treated, and all of the other trials of not being able to go at it 100%. It's all worth it, for Keith.
There have been multiple familes here that we're working with, as well as other members of the ward here are working with, that have come to church for the first time in months. One of the families have come two weeks in a row. The Lord is definitely pouring out His Spirit here. In other news, my foot is getting better, I've been able to play a little basketball with everyone here! :) Also I've been able to walk a lot more too. It's great! :) Love you all!
