Thanks for all of the emails! Sounds like everyone is having fun :) I can't believe it's the last week of summer. Are you excited for school? Good luck! You will do great!
This week our investigator, 진 accepted a baptismal date! This week we taught her the Plan of Salvation, and she liked everything. She takes notes on everything we teach her. She loves it. On friday we taught her the gospel of Jesus Christ and taught her the Word of Wisdom- this time more in depth. She has an addiction to coffee so she is having a little bit of a hard time with it. She can understand why we don't drink alcohol or smoke, but she doesn't understand coffee. We told her we don't understand everything, but because we know that Joseph Smith is a prophet, we know the Word of Wisdom is true and we obey it. She believes in the Restoration and everything we have taught, so I think she believes that the Word of Wisdom is true, it's just hard to understand. Yesterday Sister Jeon and I fasted for her. She wasn't able to come to church but we talked to her on the phone and she is trying to keep the word of wisdom. She still really wants to be baptized and really wants the bishop to baptize her. She heard his testimony the first week she came to church and really likes him. We will keep praying for her to have the strength to overcome drinking coffee. She has to keep the word of wisdom for 2 weeks before she can be baptized. So in order to be baptized on the 30th, she has to keep it until her baptism. Pray for her! :)
Another miracle that happened this week happened on tuesday. We were out walking down the street heading to find a less active address when a man stopped me and asked who we were. We told him we are missionaries for the church and he recognized our church. He also asked about a book we have so we showed him the BOM. He said he was really interested and wanted to meet with the Elders. We got his number and met with him and the elders yesterday. We did some how to begin teaching and then taught him part of the first lesson. He said that he wanted to become a member right then, but we explained baptism and told him he needs to be taught everything first. He accepted a baptism date of September 20th. Elder G. and Elder M. will be teaching him and they are meeting again on thursday.
