A Baptism is Coming!

Hey all!  It's been a pretty good week up here in St. Stephen, we continue to work hard to find more of God's children who are interested. We've been meeting a lot of different people, now we just need to sit down in lessons with them. We have a few good ones set up for this coming week, so we will update you on how that goes :)

The main thing I wanted to talk about this week was Sandra! She is doing so well! She has been reading "Our Search for Happiness" by M. Russell Ballard to help her with understanding of the doctrine we teach, and it's worked for her. We've been teaching her very directly, and she's taken it very well. She's come to church 2 times in a row now, and she is working towards her baptismal date on November 6! She is planning on getting baptized, so there is no issue there :) I just can't wait! It'll be fun!

The rest of this week we had some pretty fun experiences. We got let in and we taught the restoration to this older couple, they were both super interested and willing to learn about the church... they even wanted to come to church this Sunday. So we gave them the church address and set up another meeting the following day. We called them the next day, and they didn't even remember who we were, and they told us they had their own church... It was pretty weird. :) You get all kinds of things like that up here in the Maritimes. It's nothing new.

We talked with a few people just in passing who seemed pretty interested in learning about the church! A few of them we set up times with, and one lady I called sounded like she was crying and told us we needed to talk to her son. We set up an appointment with them next week too :)

Work is happening here in St. Stephen. It's a fun place to be, that's for sure :) 

My Ponderizing scripture is D&C 50:24
"That which is of God is light, and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light, and that light groweth brighter and brigher until the perfect day."

I hope you have a fantastic week :)

Love Elder Wanlass
