Glorious





This week was fantastic!
At the beginning of this week we had the most hilarious Word of Wisdom lesson. Our investigator Christy thought she could finish off the coffee that she bought at the beginning of the month until her baptism next week, but when we told her that she needed to start practicing the Word of Wisdom now she gave us a little fight.... AND THEN DUMPED ALL OF HER COFFEE PRODUCTS DOWN THE TOILET. It was so funny (: And she'll be getting married this Tuesday so she can live the law of chastity! (: Then she gets baptized on St. Patrick's day!! It has been so amazing to see her put the Lord first in EVERY aspect of her life. 
Our other baptismal dates have fallen back, but we know it's what the Lord wants for them. We've been really struggling with one of the families we work with. F, the "father" (they're not married), is a nonmember while the rest of the family are all inactive. But he really has such a sincere desire to be baptized since he KNOWS in his heart it's what the Lord wants for him. The only thing holding him back is the "wife" since she is unwilling to divorce her husband who she hasn't lived with in 9 years. It really bites. She knows she is holding him back, and she doesn't really seem to care all that much... Obviously we don't know the whole picture, though. So we're trying to be very understanding of her while we help F to continue to grow in his faith. 
Trying really hard. 
Basically I'm the happiest I think I have ever been on my mission! And I know that things will only become better! (:
