Plan of Salvation and the Atonement

Hey Ya'all

This week was really good week.  We were able to teach Myia the Plan of Salvation and we invited her to church and she came!  Behind the scenes we had to run around to find her a ride Sunday morning.  The ride that we set up was called in for work.  But we got her to church.  She is still excited to be baptized on May 7th.  During the lesson with Myia we felt prompted to focus on how this life is a time to [prepare to] meet God and also on how through Christ's Atonement we can be cleanse from our sins.  Anyway, she really opened up to us about some of the troubles she faces.  You could truly feel the spirit in the room as we testified to her that Christ’s Atonement can help us as we strive to follow God’s commandments.  All I have to say is it was awesome!

The Sisters had someone getting baptized last Saturday so I to give him a baptism interview.  He was set and ready to go and then 45 mins before the baptism his mom got cold feet and said that he couldn't be baptized until he was older.  Kind of sad but he came to church on Sunday so he is still wanting to get baptized anyway.

This week we went on exchanges with Brockett 1 and I got to exchange with Elder Talbot!  Elder Talbot was my MTC companion and so once again reunited.  But it was pretty good.  I guess I haven't explained how they do exchanges now.  It used to be when you went on exchanges you would have one Elder come into your area while your companion went into the other elder’s area.  Now you have to load up one day full of appointments and potential investigators so that you can have a great day.  It is a very stressful to plan.

Thank you for all the support from home, love you all!
