It’s been an amazing week, got a baptism planned for this Saturday. Her name is Kaileigh, an 8-year-old girl who has been trying to get dunked for a while. She has been kind of flaky, but we will make her solid convert. Her grandma, who is at the edge of her mortal life, dearly wants her to be baptized. So we are going to do it, and make it happen.
The weeks keep going faster… I remember Monday the 11th, and suddenly, it’s Monday again… I don’t understand what is happening. I remember just starting off my mission in the middle of nowhere and now I’m in Wichita.
Been trying to get in shape, since we got a membership to a real nice gym. Also have free shampoo, conditioner and body wash, with shaving cream, so I want to go because I save money on everything else.
I absolutely love Wichita, though I get frustrated because some of the people we teach aren’t always keeping commitments, and PMG (Preach My Gospel) says that when an investigator keeps commitments, they build faith in Christ. (Read the PMG chapter on commitments here.)
[After baptism then we enter into covenants with] Christ [and Heavenly Father], either in the fount [because baptism is our first covenant relationship with God] or in the temple, and we constantly build our faith. This is because it is a MBC, or a Mutual Binding Covenant with the Lord. We promise something, and he promises something back.
Always try and keep those commitments [and covenants]. (Read Elder Joseph W. Sitati talk on Honoring God by Honoring Our Covenants here.)
