Lafayette, La

Things are going really well here in Lafayette. On monday after pday we had Etouffee. It was really good. We had interviews last week with our president. They went really well.

We also got to visit with Zach and we will be going over to his families house this week. Hopefully they will also want to learn more about the gospel. He came to church. He is continuing reading the book of Mormon and still wants to be baptized.

We also met with Carmen and Jose and taught them the plan of Salvation. They really enjoyed it. They said they wanted to get to the Celestial Kingdom but they couldn't come to church.

We had a wonderful miracle that happened. We were invited to a dinner appointment with a family. During the dinner they gave us a referral of a lady named Jessica who is married to a less active but who has becoming more active. They have been coming to church and everybody has thought that she has been a member. She lived in Utah since she was a freshman and loved the church. She has wanted to be baptized but didn't know how to. They invited her over and she was so excited to finally know what she had to do to be baptized!!! We were able to teach her the restoration and told us that every time she went to church she felt the spirit so strong. She told us she has been to many churches and she has only felt peace at the LDS church. She told us she knew the devil could not produce those feelings of peace. We extended the invitation of baptism. She accepted. She told us she wants to be sealed to her husband and children. We will go over on Wednesday to discuss a date and talk to her husband because she wanted her husband to baptize her. He may not be worthy so that may slow things down, but we are so excited to help a family become eternal! She will definitely be baptized!!! She is so golden!!!!

I can see the lord's hand here in Lafayette preparing people here to receive the gospel. I know that miracles happen and that the lord is preparing the elect to hear the gospel.
