Dear Fullmer Family,
So this week we weren't in our area very much but the time that we had to work was great! Saturday morning was an incredible one! We went around seeing the investigators to invite them to come to church or to teach them. We got in contact with an investigator who we hadn't seen in quite some time and taught her about baptism and how the Spirit will strengthen the family. She accepted to be baptized on July 14th.
Then as we were about to leave we went to go see an investigator whom we hadn't seen probably in 3 weeks. She was home and we went in. We said a prayer and she broke down into tears. She lost her job the day before and her life has been really tough. We talked about the blessings of the Gospel and she said that she wants to be baptized.
She also accepted to be baptized on the 14th. Then I had a strong feeling to go see ******. We hadn't talked to her all week but we went over there and knocked on her door and she wasn't there... We knocked again and no one. We heard the elevator open and she said, "Hermanos!" (which means brothers!) She's been working like crazy and I asked her if she had work tomorrow (Sunday) and she said she didn't. I asked her, "Do you want to be baptized tomorrow?" She said, "Can I?" Of course we said yes and then I remembered that we hadn't taught her the Word of Wisdom yet and it so in the hallway we taught her the word of wisdom. We taught her the blessings first and she was like, what is it? tell me! We explained it and she said she drank coffee every morning. We said it was revealed through the Prophet Joseph Smith and she said, "I know that he's a prophet and that this is true! I won't drink coffee anymore!" The Spirit was so strong and we were really excited! The next morning we got a call saying that her work called and said she needed to be in at 9:00 AM. She couldn't get baptized yesterday but she will be very soon!
That's so wonderful to hear about Jazzie's baptism! I'm so happy for her!
Well, that's about all I've got to say for the week! I love you all so much and I know that we're all blessed as we go through hard things. Give me this Mountain! Have a great week!
