Baptisms are Nigh 8/17/2014


Things are going well here in Goa. We are having a few baptisms on Saturday :) It has been really neat to work with these guys through their whole conversions. I feel bad for Elder Taylor though, because we found both of them together and he had to leave the transfer before they are getting baptized. The girl getting baptized is really great and already has tons of friends in the church. She actually went and sat by herself at church this week, which kind of made us nervous, but almost all of the young women who arrived after her all went and sat by her, which was awesome. The guy we are teaching is doing great too. 

We are just putting some finishing touches on a display board that we are going to use to help us find new investigators. We really need some new investigators. We decided to go with Dad's 'Ask me Anything' idea. Hopefully it will yield some good results.  We are really going to focus on finding new people to teach because we have been falling behind on that a little bit with the baptisms coming up this week. We've already got a few referrals and such, so that should be great.

I'd also like to give Jessie a happy birthday shout out too. Happy Birthday, Jessie! I can't believe you are out of primary now!

Not really much else that I can think of. Sorry it is kinda short, but Elder Green is getting too hot in here and is ready to leave.

I know that the gospel is true and na yung simbahan natin is yung only totoong simbahan dito sa buong mundo. Nagpapasalamat ako sa pagkakataon ito na ibinigay nya sa akin para umunlad dito sa mission kahit masyadong mahirap sya minsan. Alam ko na para sa atin talaga yung mga pagsubok na darating sa ating lahat habang nandito tayo sa mundo. Alam ko na binabasbasan tayo ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ng mga pagsubok and na para sa atin yung lahat ng mga utos nya. Kung susundin natin yung halimbawa ng anak nya si Jesucristo, makakabalik tayo sa kanya sa kabilang buhay. 

I love you guys tons!
Padangat ko kamung marhay!

Elder Benjamin Merrill
