Hoping For A Baptism

Transfers are today! Neither Elder Schupp or I changed areas. We're still in Yagul. What did change is that I am the District Leader here now. But other than that, nothing really changed. One of the areas in our district closed due to another large exodus of missionaries.

We are hoping for some baptisms in the next 6 weeks. It would be a miracle but I know it can happen. One investigator and her 20 year old daughter, are our progressing investigators. Something pretty crazy happened yesterday at church. So our investigator was living with her boyfriend. Last week, our investigator told her boyfriend to get out of her house and to not come back again. He is an alcoholic and a drug addict. He has anger problems too. I don't know why she got with him in the first place. 

So she told him to leave, and he said no. He didn't want to leave. Everything belongs to her too, the house and everything in it. She works and he doesn't. So we passed by on Sunday to take them to church. He was there and Elder Schupp and I both weren't feeling good about that. We got to church and sat with them during sacrament meeting. After sacrament meeting is when the incident happened. He wanted to go and bring her and the kids with him. She wanted to stay for all 3 hours. He got really angry and started yelling at our poor investigator. He took her phone and some of her stuff and threw her phone down at the street in front of the church, breaking it, and yelling how he was going to the house to break everything in it.

She then calmly went to the class with us, and luckily before all of that happened, the primary president took all of her kids and grand-kids to their classes. I know that she is going to get baptized in the coming weeks. We are going to set up a baptism date with her in the following lesson with her on Tuesday. She has so much faith to put aside everything that happened and staying all 3 hours at church. She deserves all of the blessings that she will get from being baptized and learning about the gospel. That is why I want her to get baptized so bad. She deserves a bright future.

I hope everyone is doing great at home. Thank you for all the prayers!

Con Amor,
Elder Smith
