The Work Continues


What's up everyone? Great week here in sunny SoCal! It is actually 90 degrees here today which is a little bit to warm but that is ok. 

We had a super good week and we have some exciting things going on. We got a new ward mission leader. His name is Bro. Raevsky and he is pretty excited about the work. He has super long eyebrow hairs which kinda makes him look like a mad scientist but we are excited about his enthusiasm. 

So a good update on Claudia. She is the lady we taught when we got interrupted by the JWs. We sat down with her again and she is putting the dots together really quickly. She had gotten online and looked up four good passages in the Book of Mormon. So she had already read some of the most powerful parts. She was extremely moved by Moroni 8 which talks about how infants don't need to get baptized. She said she had problems sleeping for years because she didn't get her 2 kids baptized in the Catholic Church. She said that was the answer to her prayer and she knows the Book of Mormon is true. We shared with her about the premortal life and she was like, “That makes sense because there is the scripture that talks about how God knew us before we were formed in the belly.” It was awesome that she was quoting scriptures to us that we would normally share. Then we flipped to 2 Nephi 2 to share about the Fall. She had already marked verse 25 which says that Adam fell that men might be and men are that they might have joy. She said it had really stood out to her already. It was such a cool lesson! She has soaked so much up in just two lessons. We will see how the lesson goes this week.

Love you guys,

Have a great week,

Elder Arnold
