Christina-isms or quotes from the field

Monday, August 8, 2011

We had an incredible baptism yesterday. Honestly there was not a dry eye in the audience it was so tender. I keep wondering why the Lord is blessing us so much because I feel like I am still so behind with everything but I had the realization yesterday that maybe this is happening to help me understand the atonement better. In life we bring our meager sacrifices to the table and he makes up the rest and that is what he has been doing with our ministry. He has truly been blessing us and making up the difference. I am so thankful and happy and blessed that I can't stand it! :)

I also made the connection that every one of our investigators who progressed toward baptism was because they were reading the book of mormon consistently. It was a good testimony builder to me.

Fun fact: Tomorrow is the beginning of my 6th transfer. I'm half way. That is wild.

Love, Sister Gilson
