Challenging but good week... March 15, 2011

Thank you for that E-mail. I really needed it this week. It has been a tough week, but we are doing what we have set out to do. We are here to Baptize and prove to the Lord we can do his work and that he has entrusted the right sister Missionaries.

I Know God answers prayers. Maybe not always in the way that we might think; but he does. There is a family that we were teaching when I first got here but because of an abusive, alcoholic and drugs situation, we were not allowed to go over to their home without two priesthood holders and if the husband was there, not at all. Well the kids and the mother wanted to be baptized so badly but they couldn't because they as parents were not married and the father never wanted to be married. We finally dropped them or he dropped us after yelling at us over the phone. We prayed that somehow, someway, the mom and kids could be baptized and the boyfriend or "husband" would be taken out of the picture. Well we have not heard from them in over two months when we get a phone call early Monday morning saying that something was wrong in their home and that we needed to come and bless it. After a long period of time and refusal from priesthood leader to go to the home because of the husbands weird behavior, they ended up calling a preacher from a Baptist church and when he got there he saw how crazy the husband was acting and called the police and put him in the looney bin. Woohoo! I know that is not so awesome for him but he is not a good man and needs help. But hopefully he is out of the picture for good. The priesthood holders finally went over and blessed the home and gave blessings where needed. It was amazing! God works in his own ways, we just pray to know what way that is. I know God answers prayers. I know it because I see it every day!

Thank you so much for sharing your testimony with me. I love hearing it.
Sorry this is short but I don't have a lot of time today, I love you and the family with my whole heart!

Love your Sister Missionary~
