It was an eventful week! Sestra B and I are exhausted but deliriously happy. I can imagine nothing greater.
Moving P-day to the end of last week really pushed our physical limits. It takes careful juggling to keep in contact with dozens of people with differing schedules and needs, and stay on top of what they need spiritually. If I struggle this much with stewardship over a companion, a few branch members, investigators (potential or progressing), and sister missionaries, then how does God manage to direct the entire universe? It boggles my mind.
But it is all so worth it, even waking up at 04.30 to travel to Bratislava on Saturday: S’s baptism was such a victory. Riverside baptismal services rock. The view over the glittering Dunaj (otherwise known as the Danube) was glorious, and the Spirit we felt was sweet. I’m happy beyond description that the Zone Leaders’ investigator M will soon be joining S, as yet another addition to the Bratislava branch.
The Teixeiras’ training was great, as were the McConkies’, as always. Elder Teixeira promised us that we will return to our mission 25 years from now and see STAKES here in Slovakia. We’re bound for success! 😀
