Most of the week was pretty chill, but Saturday was crazy! We had appointment after appointment, which is always great! A little stressful--especially when you're trying to get to all of them on time--but great. Also on Saturday, President Hancock sent us on another secret mission! To get Sister Hancock a Valentine's Day Gift for him while he was at a meeting in Rexburg. I think we accomplished the mission pretty well with a dozen roses and two boxes of chocolates.
We are teaching Trey, a Christian guy who lives with a returned missionary. They've had lots of conversations about faith and about the Church. Trey seems like he doesn't really want the Book of Mormon to be true...he even told us that he hopes that it isn't true. We are trying to help him see that it wouldn't contradict everything he's ever been taught or prove wrong anything he already knows. It just supports the Bible and testifies of Christ! Well, we're hoping he will come around. We are really praying that he will receive an answer that it is true.
We have a fairly new investigator, Sarah, that is praying about baptism! She has been reading the Book of Mormon for a couple months now and is in Mosiah. Although she has a desire to follow Christ and put forth the commitment to do so, she has some fears (what family and friends will think, etc.) but she told us that she knows she just needs to pray to be able to have courage and get past the fears!
Sister Gilbert's sister just found out she's pregnant, so Sister Gilbert has been really excited all week about becoming an aunt. Sister Gilbert is also excited about her goats back home that are having babies. Sister Gilbert really likes goats. Hahaha I love her so much.
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and remembered the love that Christ had for you, especially since it was a Valentine's Sabbath Day!
