Another week has gone and passed!
Sorry, but I don´t have any pictures this week. We did however, have a good week. We were able to fast for some miracles, and lo and behold a miracle occurred. A sister in the ward brought this boy that she has basically raised as her son to the general conference. We had never met the kid, but he just showed up. When we went to his house to talk to him, he put his own baptismal date! He wants to be baptized on the 27th of April. His name is M___ C____. He is about 16 years old. He is young, a little slow on learning, but with strong desires to continue. The lady that brings him to church will be a great support for him.
We are also trying to baptize the father of the stake secretary. He has been going for several weeks now, and has bought himself a white shirt to go to church. He says he is waiting for his wife to attend church, so that they can get baptized together, but the wife hasn´t even shown interest in learning anything about the church. Pray for that lady.
We have a trip to the temple this week for investigators. We do this trip about 3 times a year, and it is a good opportunity for investigators to see the temple and feel the spirit. We´ve went with all the members, and we have invited all of them to bring their friends. The bus ride is free, for all the members that bring friends.
In other new, this morning I called all my converts. So many of them are active and are preparing themselves to go to the temple to get sealed. Things like this fill my soul with appreciation, and really help me feel like my mission was something very worthwhile.
I loved the pics of the jib-miester. Sounds like he´s quite the football stud. I never was good at sports… but looks like the jib-miester is kicking some batoosh.
What´s RJ up to? Tell him to send me a quick email. The Walkers moved?
I have only three months left. It seems crazy to me, but at the same time it feels like a giant dream. It´ll be weird to be back. The mission is so different to what I lived before.. not only in the church sense, but the culture… everything is so different.
Well family, I love you.
Love, Elder Jacobsen
