These past two weeks have been great. On the 24th, we had a baptism of an elderly lady named Barbara. She has been investigating the church by herself for about a year and when she started meeting with the missionaries, she said she new the Book of Mormon was the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. She readily accepted baptism and is now a member of the Church of Jesus Christ.
We also had the opportunity to go to the Iron County Fair this past weekend. I saw my third demolition derby and my third rodeo since I’ve been out. I have to say this demolition derby wasn’t the greatest, but the rodeo was pretty good. We also went to the carnival with a recent convert and rode some rides with them. It was fun to go on those rides again.
We had a great experience yesterday too. We were on our way to Cedar City to play sports with the other missionaries. Elder Jackson was driving and I was texting a companionship we were going to pick up. Elder Jackson was watching the speedometer while he was slowing down, because he thought he was going a little to fast, when suddenly we both looked up to see a semi swerve out of our lane back into the lane he was originally in. We were sure the Holy Ghost prompted Elder Jackson to slow down so we wouldn’t be run off the road and we were protected from danger. I am grateful that our Father in Heaven is looking out for us and sends his Spirit to help us when we need it.
