This past week has been a spiritual roller coaster. With one of our investigators (Julie is the investigator, and Pierce is the less active coming back) we got them excited for a proposed wedding. We recently taught them the law of chastity and they are fully embracing it. We brought to their understanding why it's so important to get married. They have 2 twin girls by the way. They set their date for August 1st and then her baptism August 8th which is her birthday. It was an interesting thought. Getting born again on your birthday. We also told them that the Relief Society can help out a little with the decorations. Most of the food will have to come from them and their family for the reception. I know how they feel right now. My sister had her wedding 2 years ago so I know what to expect.
For the other investigators, Athena, and her daughter Jasmine, they are still good for baptism on the 20th. Athena still struggles with smoking, and Jasmine came to church for the whole 3 hours. She said she liked it. I was glad she came and to slowly get over her social anxiety. She knew one of the young women- sister Roades. That helped with the fellow ship problem. We were calling it, "The Young Women fellow ship attack"! I'm just glad things worked out. They helped some people out almost 2 months ago and kicked them out. They caused that family so much stress. The family is still recuperating with sleep.
Lastly, we are still set up for baptisms for this Saturday. We don't have details yet. They are part of the Almanza family-Angelina, Virginia, and Andrew Collins. If they keep every appointment for this week, we have a done deal. We are excited for them. Oh, and I find out if I am in the new mission or not this Saturday. So we can't wait. I am really hopeful I get to stay in this area. We feel very attached to Modesto. Until next week.
