So here is the update for this week:
- We will have a baptism this Saturday! Yay! It is for a 10 year old girl. Her name is Nei. Her mom is Doniva, whom I have mentioned before. She is such a good girl. Their family has really been going through a lot lately, but she has still been strong in her desire/decision to be baptized. She's so great. :)
- We also will be having Richard's baptism the following week. He has been in China, where we cannot communicate with him, so we have been praying a lot. We are really hoping that he still has a desire to be baptized when he gets home.
- The following week after Richard's baptism, we will have another baptism. The woman getting baptized is Linsel. She is a Chuukese woman who is family with one of our members. She has come to church every week and you can tell that her testimony is growing rapidly. Her son has joined her at church, but we are going to work on getting the rest of the family to come as well.
- We met a woman at church today, who is the niece of one of our investigators. She took lessons before, but the missionaries lost touch eventually. We went to see her yesterday and she told us that she knows that the BOM is true. Also, she knows that this is the true church. So many wonderful elect people out here!
We also had the opportunity to go to the temple today. It was, as usual, a very special experience. I am so grateful to be able to go to the temple once a quarter. The temple is such a blessing. Every time I go, I have an even stronger desire to help every family in Hawaii to be able to go to the temple with their families some day. The church is true. Jesus Christ is our Savior. Missionary work is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. I am so grateful to be a part of it every day.
I love you all! Thank you for your love, prayers and support!!
Love, Sister Barber
