Hope... that all is going to go well...
I don't have tons of time today so I'll have to be quick!
First of all I got the birthday box mom and dad sent! It's awesome! I loved the cookies!!!! I couldn't believe what I was eating haha. I gave some to my companion too! And, well he didn't say much about them...but I loved them!!!! Haha, I also couldn't wait to check out the USB! It's so awesome! Thanks Dad! It's perfect with all the stuff I wanted! But it will probably take me the rest of my mission to listen to allllll that music haha.
Well this week was a stressful week! But this morning I was reading and studying in preach my Gospel about hope. And I learned a lot of great things about how we need to have hope that all is going to go well and that we will receive the blessings that God has promised us as long as we work diligently. We also had a super awesome lesson with a pastor this week from another church. We started teaching him about a few things and I lead it into baptism. Then my companion started talking about the importance of the authority to baptize. Then I shared Hebrews 5:4 and talked about how someone needs to be called of God. As we taught him he really seemed interested. I knew it was because the spirit was testifying to him because I felt it so strong. At the end of the lesson when I invited him to be baptized he even said yes!!! Haha, we're going back this week to talk and teach more. When we left my companion just said, Holy cow, the spirit was incredible.
I love and miss you all. Hope all is well!
Love Elder Markham
