Some New Investigators - September 23, 2013

Another week down...
Good things are happening in Story City! We found 3 new investigators this week! One is a man who works overnights for the Postal Service and the other two are Hispanic men who don't speak English. We had a less-active member translate for us yesterday and he is going to have us over for dinner in the next week or two.
Aurian and Vincent Bennett are going to be baptized this Saturday! The Sisters who have been working with them since they moved down to Ames were setting up the program, and they told me Aurian asked me to give the talk on the Gift of the Holy Ghost, to be a witness for her baptism, and to be in the circle for her confirmation! It is going to be an exciting weekend. Elder Newhouse is going to try to come with his current companion and see his first baptism. And it will be Sister Paul's first baptism too. Super exciting times ahead!
We are doing lots of work with the less-actives here and it is turning out to be good, as one came yesterday and is officially reactivated! The blessings of full-time missionary service are many! But none better than seeing others come unto Christ. It is just a bonus the change that is wrought in me.
Love from the place of Stories,
