Well we had a miracle this week! The other night we were teaching a family of investigators which consists of a mom, daughter and son. The daughter has been a member now for about 3 years. When I first arrived here on Guadeloupe we went and saw the Daughter because she was inactive and after that one visit she has been coming to church ever since and now she is wanting to go on a mission. Well anyways, when she started coming back to church, we noticed that her brother was coming with her and we started to teach him and the lessons were always great and he was progressing really well. That was until we would try and set a baptismal date. He would always tell us, "when I receive an answer then yes I will!" So we were kind of at a hault, but the other night we were teaching them all together and as we were leaving he chased us out the door and stopped us. He asked us when he could get baptized. He told us that he was ready! Elder Galati and I just looked at each other in amazement! That was such a blessing for us! We have been really trying to work hard for baptisms here and this is really the pay off. What a blessing and we are super excited! He is getting baptized this coming saturday! The week was great! We had a little problem because these dang frenchies love to go on strike so we had to scramble to get some gas before all the gas stations closed but we got all that taken care of and out of the way! Now we just hope we can survive on the gas that we do have until the strike is over! We have been teaching a big group of Haitians that are really intelligent. The lessons go well if we can keep it on track but they ask a lot of questions that get us away from the main goal and lesson so it has been a little challenge but we are figuring out how to work with that! This week we are going to try and set some baptismal dates but we will see what happens!
This week we also went home teaching with one of the members and that was cool because he called us and said hey I need some help! So I think it's a good thing to help the members out and get a strong base to build off of!
Sounds like all is going pretty great back home! That's what I like to hear and what I really look forward too :) I appreciate all the love and support I receive! To bad to hear that mitch broke his wrist! How did he do that playing basketball? He must of fell on it? That's to bad. "The Kay family, always known for most injuries!" haha But hope that the surgery goes well for him! I will be thinking and praying for him! But anyways! Time to go so have a great week and I love you all!!
Love Elder Peterson!
