Since last we've talked, the following events have happened:

>> Sister Badham and I organized a District P-day of LASER TAGGING. Unfortunately, all of the elders in our district only wanted to email. So we went laser tagging by ourselves. And totally annihilated the fifteen year old gamer boys we played against.

>> We fixed a less active member's lawn mower. Well ... mostly we just handed him the right tools. But we were great assistants.

>> A new sister from SPAIN arrived mid-transfer in our zone, so we went and decorated their apartment door. Nothing says "Welcome to your life as a full time representative of Christ" like a little Sister Pross.

>> We had a mission wide fast (a very rare event - only the 2nd one of my whole mission!) for all of the investigators in the MBM who have agreed to be baptized this month. You could say there are a few more than normal. #hasteningthework We're in the middle of a miracle here and we are trying to do everything in our power to keep it going! As President Packard says, "We need to work like it all depends on us and pray like it all depends on the Lord." 

The night of the fast we took our investigator Carla with us to teach a returning less-active woman. Sister Badham and I were a little bit giddy because we are kind of obsessed with both of these women. After an amazing, amazing lesson where the spirit was SO strong, we were walking back to Carla's apartment with her and had such a neat conversation. We were talking about her baptism that is scheduled for the end of the month, but it's been a little tentative because she really wants her brother to be there and he might not be able to make it. But that night she told us she feels like her life is so different than it was when she first met it, and she can't explain why. We were practically jumping up and down and skipping in the streets as we yelled, "IT'S THE SPIRIT! IT'S THE GOSPEL!". Then she said, "I don't know why, but I just feel this pull to not wait. I need to be baptized as soon as I can." I would say that the mission fast was pretty successful, and things are on track for her baptism this month!

The work is going so so soooooo good. Sister Badham and I feel a lot of pressure because there are so many people in this area bursting with potential! It's a good kind of pressure though. We're just trying really hard not to let the Lord down!

Love you all!
Sister Gledhill
