WA Week 48 - Finding Dori

Hey everybody! Happy August! It's been a G-R-E-A-T week here in Moses Lake 2nd Ward.

It's also been a pretty hot one. On Wednesday we decided to bake cookies in the sun. (It worked.)

I left our area twice for two different exchanges. Poor Sister Rasmussen's been holding down the fort. This week we're excited that we'll have no exchanges, so we'll be together all week. Yippee!

This past week we also met with Dori every day to prepare her for her baptism on Saturday. It was pretty crazy getting all those lessons in, and there was some drama on Friday night, but it all worked out and she got baptized!

Right before she went into the font she started crying, and said, "I don't know why I'm crying. I'm so happy!" It was such a powerful moment, and it's moments like that that help me see the big picture of what the Lord is accomplishing through missionary work. His work and His glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man, and the fact that I was able to be a tool for Him to do that with Dori is amazing.

Another of our highlights this week was church! I've talked a lot about how we've been trying to push the work with less actives and members in our ward, and yesterday we had six individuals/families come to church that are less actives, part-member families, or recent converts that we've been working with. We're trying to be a positive presence in the ward, and I feel like the members are so much friendlier and willing to help us, especially now that they're seeing all these people coming to church! It's been incredible to see.

Our teaching pool with investigators isn't huge right now, but the people that we've been teaching have been pretty solid. With Dori baptized, this week we'll have more time to find people. It should be pretty good.

I hope you all have a great week!

Sister Skousen
