This week we found an awesome new investigator named Kunle Omisore! He is also from Nigeria! He had requested a Book of Mormon and we had brought him one a few weeks ago, but we weren't able to get in to teach him because he was leaving when we got there. And then over the last few weeks, we've tried to go by but we have only gotten his sons, so we have taught them as well. But a few nights ago, we stopped by and he was home and invited us in! He told us how he has had 3 separate experiences with Mormons and so he felt like God was trying to give him a sign!
Things are going great in Ellicott City! Francis is getting baptized on April 9th. Sydney is getting baptized when Grayson graduates because her grandparents will be coming out! The diversity of our investigators right now is quite interesting! 2 people from Nigeria, 1 from Russia, 1 from Maryland, 1 from Guatemala! It's been so amazing to see all of the different cultures and backgrounds.
The mission is progressing like crazy! It is so amazing to hear the miracles from around the mission! The work continues to hasten around the World!
It's been great being with Elder Fisher! We get along so well and are working hard to keep Ellicott City going. The Lord is so great!
I'm so excited for General Conference this next week! I have looked forward to General conference on my mission more than anything before! It is so amazing to be able to hear the testimonies of our Prophet and Apostles!
Thank you so much for all of the support! I promise I will be able to expound and tell more stories next week!
