Ft. Myers Week 13

Oh my, the things that Sister Baum and I have faced this week! We have been led to amazing people that I know we were led to find, who before felt like they were lost or hadn't attended church in years. They started to find their faith again when they planted the seed of faith and read the Book of Mormon. We would start to see a change in them, they would be happier, they would love being in the church. They would say they knew it was all true. Sister Baum and I would be beaming, and then we would ask them to follow the Savior and be baptized in his church. Dun dun dunnn, they would say, “I don't want to change religions,” or “I can't change religions,” or “I finally feel good going back to my church, but thank you for everything you have done for me.” after they left the church sister Baum and I pretty much put our faces in the pews and screamed! We went from 10 baptismal dates to 1 because of those two things! Grrrrrr!!! But, the work is still rolling. In two days we filled our teaching pool again and now we don't have enough time to teach every one. And get this; between the elders and us we had 20 investigators at church on Sunday!!! That’s amazing! We filled the chapel and we hardly fit in the high council room for gospel doctrine class! That is all for just one ward! It is soooo much fun!
