Upcoming Baptism and Maybe Check Out Hawaii after the Mission!!
Hey everyone! It’s time for the blog.
We’ve been stopping by this less active member's home for a couple weeks now, that is this spitting image, personality, everything of one of my friends back at home. It’s so weird how closely associated they both are to each other! He’s been going through some rough times, for literally his whole life, and he’s trying to turn back to the church for help and aid through them. Keep him in your prayers, he’s going through a lot!
Also, we met this investigator named Remi Last week. This week, we were able to teach her once more, and she said that if she came to know that these things were true, that she would be baptized, and follow all the things that Joseph Smith has told us to do. She’s got such a sweet spirit, and she was able to make it to church on Sunday with her two daughters! Fancy that. That was really good to see her there and we’ve got high hopes in the future for her and hope to see her continually come and prepare for her baptism.
Also, Garret, one of our investigators, is going to be baptized on the 31st! Woot! It’s so good! He went over the baptismal interview questions with us this week, and he’s definitely prepared for baptism, and coming unto Christ. He’s got great fellowship in the ward, and we’ve got high hopes for him.
Also, a person named Jim talked to us for a good 20 minutes on the porch of his trailer about how we need to go to the cultural center in Hawaii and check that out. He wasn’t interested in the message, but he was just really impressed with the show that they put on with the fire and all the other events, so we’ll probably have to make a stop down there after the mission or what not.
A recent convert (last week) gave a talk, and just bore a really simple testimony of his conversion story.. it was really touching to see how he, being the only member in his family, was led to the missionaries. He said a prayer one night, out of frustration and having enough of some of his trials and tribulations, praying to just know if God was real or not as his family was going through some rough times, and he said just a couple days later, the missionaries showed up at the door. They were there to help him find Christ, and find him he did. He’s a great dedicated 17 year old member, that stands as a great example to the rest of the ward.
Hey and this Baptist preacher said he didn’t want to talk to me, because I was going to the BAD place… eee… I don’t think it’s going to be too bad…
Well hey, I love you all so much and hope that all goes well in your prospective areas out there! Keep close to God! NEVER forget the promises and covenants that you’ve made with him and never let your standards slip for anything!!!
Please trust him and keep him close! Love, Elder Langford
