Hello Family that is wonderfully awesome!
We have have an amazing week. Lots of running back and forth. We had two exchanges, zone conference, and stake conference, all in the same week.
We taught Bro Tom this past week. We finished the Plan of Salvation lesson and at the end we invited him to be baptized. He said that he doesn't feel that he is ready to make that step, but he is going to read the scriptures we had given him that testify of Jesus Christ and pray to know if God is real. We told him that he has nothing to lose and everything to gain. If he prays and God doesn't answer then He can tell us to leave him alone, but if he prays and God does answer than he has eternal life to gain. He is willing to do it. The scriptures we gave him were out of the Book of Mormon and they testify that Jesus is the Christ. It was after reading two such chapters that he felt the Spirit.
We taught Max the other day. He is such a smart kid. We are going through the commandments right now. After the last lesson he asked "how many more of these are there?" He said that because he is really excited to be baptized and right now the lessons are the only things keeping him from being baptized. I thought it was really funny for him to say that.
This winter has been so mild. Right now it feels like it is fifty degrees. The weather can't seem to make up it's mind. It goes up and down up and down. It is rather funny, when it is our week for the car the temperature drops, when we lose the car the temperature goes back up. The other Elders don't like that as much.
We taught a lady this last week who speaks good English, but her native language is Spanish. We brought someone who speaks Spanish with us. He shared the First Vision in Spanish and even though I couldn't understand it I still felt the Spirit. Then she Prayed in Spanish and it was such a heart felt prayer. It was very cool.
You are all awesome!! Oh and one of the exchanges I went on was with one of my leaders who has a full-time car and we biked so much that day, I think his legs were about to fall off. He was really good about it.
I love you all! May the Spirit be with you!
Elder Durrant
