Dinner with the Stokers

This was a really good week with a lot of progression for myself and our investigators.

We had a mostly regular week, but this past weekend we had a baptism for one of the Bedford Elder's investigators. We are so grateful she took all the necessary steps to baptism and that she is excited and happy to be a new member of God's church. It was also a great opportunity for us to bring a couple of our investigators to. It was such a special experience to invite them to the baptism and have them come out of curiosity to what it is like and wanting to understand more about coming closer to God in this way. It was definitely a spirit filled, special experience.

Then, we had church the next day where the Elder's investigator was confirmed in Sacrament meeting and it was again a special experience when everyone could feel a change in the atmosphere as the spirit filled the room, and it just continued to grow as we had our fast and testimony meeting.

I think I also especially loved church this week because we got to have President and Sister Stoker join us. And, after church, they asked if we had a dinner appointment that night, to which we said no, so they invited us over! It was so fun to be at the mission home and having dinner with them after a spirit filled fast Sunday. I especially loved how after dinner we got to take down the Christmas decorations we helped put up after Thanksgiving :).

I also just want to say I love the new year so far and I know that everyone can set goals and follow through with them to become better and help improve everyone's life with those simple things we can change.

Happy New Year!
