Literally and figuratively. Naples really was on fire this week and there was a big evacuation made where 7,000 people had to evacuate. But we are safe and all the missionaries are good. The poor everglades need some rain though! The sky was nasty and it was raining ash but the work keeps on going!
Other than the literal fire, we also are on fire in our area right now. We were out knocking yesterday and found 4 new investigators to teach in an hour. Miracles! Jonathan is getting baptized this Saturday and all the branch members are excited and supportive. He texted us this morning and said, "I wouldn't be here without your help. Thanks!" This is why we do missionary work. There is so much joy and happiness that comes through the Gospel and through missionary work and I am lucky to be a small part of it.
If you haven't had the chance to read "Jesus the Christ" DO IT. And the talk called, "Joy and Spiritual Survival" from President Nelson will change your life. READ THEM.
This week was spent a lot in Naples, Cape Coral and Lehigh. We did a couple exchanges so we were all over the place and our miles are disappearing way too fast. Cape Coral was just an overall weird experience where a less active woman was holding her dog's leash while we were inside the house and the dog was just barking and snarling and it literally had a muzzle on. It made me question why people have dogs like that? We literally just stood up and left because who wants to sit and feel fear? NOT US.
We also got to see some amazing miracles as a zone. We have a April baptismal goal of 11 baptisms as our zone and so far we have 10! Jonathan is number 11 going down on Saturday!
Thank you all for your love and support!
1: The ZL's put us in charge of the zone activity invite... this is what they received.
2: When your area is on fire and you secretly started it... just kidding
