Baptisms and Zone Conference!

This weeks was a really good week! It started out pretty normal nothing to crazy! On Tuesday we had the chance to have zone conference! We got to hear from President Dunn, Sister Dunn, The APs as well as some other missionaries. It was a great conference and very inspiring! We learned a lot of the Book of Mormon in conversion and how to help people read it. We also had some good seminars with just a lot of stuff! Then we just had a normal week after that! We got some really cool new Investigators named Melody and Alice. They are sisters and really powerful! I met Alice on the road the other day coming from delivering a Book of Mormon to some person. I talked with her about the Book of Mormon and she said we can come and share more. When we were there she said that she has not been going to church cause she does not know what is truth and what is lies. She said her last church/pastor asked for like 1 million rand or something like that. She said she did not like that so she left. Then we found her and I knew the verse in D&C 123:12  For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it—
Hopefully we will make some good progress with her in the next coming weeks. She was very happy and said she would read the Book of Mormon. This we also had two baptisms!! Ruby and her daughter Funeka. It was so nice! They were very ready for it! It was a very spiritual service especially when they bore their testimony after the baptism! They have finally found a home of a church and they really are loved in this ward!! It was such a great day, and such a great week! I am so grateful to be here on mission doing the lords will! I know that his will is help his children find joy in this life and the life to come. It is such a great experience to be here and I love every moment!! I hope you all have a great week! I love you all!!
