September 29, 2014

Hey there folks!

Ah such a good week here in West Yorkshire! Let me tell you about Jessica.

So Jessica started to come to church with her neighbor friend Emily Pollentine about 4 years ago. She was 14 at the time and she really wanted to be baptised, but her dad said no. She kept coming faithfully to church and all the young women's activities until she turned 18. Which was last week. Her testimony has grown during these 4 years, and she has worked really hard to show her parents this is what she wants. Well she was baptised yesterday and it was incredible. There were over 200 people there to support her. Normally we are lucky to get 30 people to a baptism. It was such an incredible thing to be a part of and the Spirit there was so strong.
A couple hours before the baptism we had the opportunity to teach her with a member named Isa who was baptised 5 years ago and ended up serving a mission. We read 2 Nephi 31 and talked to her about the covenant she was about to make and the importance of enduring to the end. It was so great to speak to two great converts about this, and to hear their conversion stories.

Well I love you guys and hope you have a great week!
