What's good guys???
We had a fantastic week here in Antietam aka Hagerstown aka Hub City!! First of all, Mary got baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday!!!! So stoked!!! It is amazing to think about how much she has progressed since we first started teaching her! She smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day pretty much every day since she was 8 years old and stopped cold turkey after we gave her a priesthood blessing! Not to mention she drank coffee and tea every day and she gave up all of them! It is amazing what the gospel can do for people and the difference it can make! Her baptism was super spiritual! She was the first person to be baptized in this ward since October of 2014, and hopefully there will be many more to come in this area!
We picked up 2 new investigators this week as well! One of them is the brother of a guy in our ward. They were separated when they were younger and both went completely opposite directions in life. His name is David and you can just tell that this guy has been through it all! After we taught him about the first vision we asked him how he felt and with tears rolling down his face he told us how he felt so fortunate to have us there with him to teach him about this stuff. At the end of the lesson we invited him to pray and ask about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and no joke right as he said amen there was a huge explosion of thunder! It was quite a booming answer to a prayer!
The Lord is hastening His work out here in Maryland, and we are doing our best to keep up with Him! It is amazing how loving our Heavenly Father is! Anyways, I hope y'all have a good week!
