I hesitate to say this, but i'm going to go ahead and say... this week has been one of the best weeks of my mission!!! I mentioned last week that we found a new investigator and started teaching her. She is all set to be baptized on Christmas Eve! The day after we met with her she was struggling so much to stay strong and optimistic. Satan was working so hard on her! We taught her about trusting the Lord and letting Christ into her life, to strengthen her. She has had a hard time trusting people because of her past experiences, but we helped her to see the power that our Savior Jesus Christ has and the love of our Heavenly Father. The next day she was so peaceful and truly felt that things would work out. Every single day (because we met with her almost every day) she had more and more confirmation that this gospel is true. With her faith growing every day, she started to see the potential that she has as a daughter of God. As we taught her the commandments, she knew that they would help her to be strong and to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost. She went to Salt Lake for part of the weekend and we were even able to skype a few lessons with her! I am so grateful for technology! It has been such a whirlwind, but at every turn, we know by confirmation of the Holy Ghost, that she is ready. And just in this short week, she has seen her life start to turn around.
