Megan's Letter 2/8/2016

Maurice is getting baptized on Friday!!! So excited for him. Also, A few minutes ago he walked up to Sister Patten and I at the library and told us that he got an apartment!(: He is moving in Friday morning. Wow best birthday ever for him right? It's been really cool to watch him gain a testimony of the gospel, even though his comprehension is really slow. 

We have been seeing our investigator Lindsey a lot this week! It's crazy how close you get with people in such a small amount of time. She is going through a lot of hard things all at once. I can see the gospel lifting her up and helping her through it as she continues to be open minded! Bad news is that our Gospel Principles teacher dropped the Word Of Wisdom bomb in Sunday school yesterday before we could teach it to her ourselves. Like everyone else here- She LOVES sweet tea. She has 4 gallons of it in her fridge at all times! You can imagine how panicked we felt when she leaned over and said to me "Y'all don't drink tea!?"
Scariest moment ever. Luckily she let us come over later that night and she asked us tons of questions. She asked about temples, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Word of Wisdom! So now at least she understands it, she just has to decide for herself.

Also the Elders had a baptism on Saturday for a guy that we met at the library! It went really smoothly. Erik came to the baptism and really enjoyed it. 

We are sending a package with a Book of Mormon to one of our favorite Christian artists.... Don't be surprised if we convert Josh Garrels.

Shout out to my adorable new niece Saylor Michelle Adams who came into the world on Wednesday! Congrats to Brynn and Dan (: 

I love being here and I can't wait to see what I learn throughout my mission. Love y'all have the best week!

-Sister Merrill
