Lots going on this past week. Spent a lot of time helping various ward members in everything from gardening to cleaning and moving and painting etc. Feels good to be spending a lot of our week simply helping people out!
Zeke's baptism was incredible and everything went perfectly well once it started.All the Nauvoo older sister missionaries that Zeke met the day we visited Nauvoo with over a month ago came to the baptism! They brought her more books to read. Zeke was so shocked and happy to see them! They spent a long time after the baptism taking pictures and talking. Zeke was incredibly happy and teary-eyed. Those Nauvoo sisters played a critical role in Zeke's conversion. She refused to listen to us talk about baptism until after all the Nauvoo sisters had talked to her about it that day. One lady in her mid-80s, Sister Olson, had even told her she knew Zeke before this life and knew she was going to be baptized. At the baptism sister Olson came up to me in shock and said that she NEVER says those things to people, but the Spirit had prompted her to say it.
