This past week has been really great. We had a baptism last Saturday. Brother Anderson was already on date for baptism before I got transferred to this area, but I'm glad that I still got to teach him most of the lessons. My companion and I both agree that we didn't really do much, and it was all by the Spirit. His wife is a member but has been less active for quite awhile as she couldn't find the Church building after she moved. They didn't talk about religion when they got married. Later, they decided to find a Church so that they could all go as a family. And Sister Anderson remembered her experiences at Church, so she asked her husband to try our Church, and he loved it. The missionaries stopped meeting him in August as he was too busy, but later he asked the counselor of the Bishopric how he could get baptized. And of course he was told that he had to talk to the missionaries. So he started the discussion again. Last Monday, we spent some of our P-day hours teaching him so that we could finish all the lessons before he had the baptismal interview. Even though I didn't get to finish the things that I wanted to because of the lesson, I knew for sure that helping people to come unto Christ was way more important than enjoying my P-day.
