Then this week we had Stephens baptism! It went so great! So this is Stephens story of how he found the church and that it was true. Stephen has a friend who was recently baptized. He was talking to her one day and he mentioned how he wanted to get back into church. His friend invited him to go to a Mormon service and so he thought he’d try it out. He went just that one Sunday and at church he “felt like he was home” and “where he was supposed to be” at church a member gave him a Book of Mormon. He took it home and started to read it. He would from time to time ask some questions to his friend about the church. Stephen got in habit to read the Book of Mormon every day. He found out about general conference and then started to study conference talks every day as well. He just showed up to church one Sunday by himself and that’s how we met him. By this time he already knew of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Teaching him was awesome, he knew very little of the Restoration or the plan of salvation but as we taught him he accepted everything easily because he knew the Book of Mormon was true. The other day we were talking about temples with him and he is getting deployed to Europe. (He is in the army) And he really wants to try to go to the temple before he goes to Europe. So that’s really awesome he has that goal.
Also an awesome miracle is that Jason and Joes older brother Josue got baptized this last week. When I first met him he wouldn’t ever want to talk to us. But now he is baptized! So cool!
