Normally this would be the time of year that I would listen to a lot
of U2 “in the name of love,” but this year Martin Luther King Jr. Day
was spent proselyting. We didn’t get a whole lot of answers this time
round, but we had a couple of good lessons that were already scheduled
down. One mark of a promising investigator is the asking of questions,
and we got a lot of them. Sometimes those we teach have a lot of
challenges, and a lot of vices, but it’s exciting to see the gospel at
work in their lives, helping them change for the better.
We had a baptism last Saturday, which was awesome. The more I study
about baptism, the more it makes sense, and the more I see the reason
why we’re out here doing this work. It’s really gratifying to see
someone make the commitment that will bring them closer to their Heavenly Father.
