6 More Weeks of Winter, Early Spring or....

More summer sun of course! I felt somewhat dumb this last week when I asked the other sisters if they celebrate Groundhog's Day in New Zealand and the Philippines. I realized that of course they don't because 1) it's always summer here and 2) they're in the other hemisphere anyway. Haha it's alright, at least there is always good weather to proselyte in. This last week we continued to help our investigators prepare for their baptisms. Basically how it works, is we extend a baptismal goal date (usually 2-3 months in advance) and then continue to teach and help them prepare to be worthy to be baptized on that date. Of course, if the person doesn't feel ready by their date, it can be rescheduled. As missionaries it's wonderful to have front row seats to a person's conversion and reception of the restored gospel. I know that even though we all are at different spiritual levels, through diligence seeking and prayer, everyone can gain the truth for themselves directly from God. Whether it be here in the baking sauna of the Philippines or in misty Seattle, we are all His children and He is just waiting for us to turn to Him.
