Well, this week has been such an exciting one. One of the investigators living out in Goodland (about halfway between here and Burlington Colorado) moved into Colby, and wants to get baptized. In fact, she is so excited for it she announced it in our Sunday school class and invited everyone to come. It is fun. Also, a young man who has been coming to church for 8 months now is building up his courage to ask his social worker for permission to be baptized so that h can then help out with the Sacrament and other responsibilities of the priesthood.
We continue to see miracles everyday, and so can you!
Boy, this week has been pretty awesome. Elder Marley and I are teaching a couple of pretty incredible couples who have been investigating the church for a little while, and really can feel the Spirit. This week, they took a HUGE step forward and sat down and actually planned out their marriages! It is so cool...but it leaves me with another wish: that I get to be here for them! One couple is getting married at the beginning of May, and the other is planning on the beginning of June. Having seen the complete change of fear of marriage and the commitment it brings to the devotion and excitement they have is truly a testimony of the gospel. And, on top of that, they seem so much happier as they come to church, and read with us, and pray with us, and just do the little things. That's what it's truly all about. So, this week was some of the craziest (as in most unexplained) weather I have ever seen in my life. All day Wednesday through Saturday it was snowing, and I mean snowing with big flakes coming down...the kind of snow you would expect to deliver 2-3 inches every hour, and it just never accumulated at all. It was the weirdest things because it was also freezing out there, almost always between 10-20 degrees. But the most that would stay on the ground at any time was a super feathery dry skiff that would blow away as soon as the wind picked back up. I just was baffled, yet very grateful because we didn't have to cancel church two weeks in a row. Love you all tons! I know this is the work of the Lord and I love being a part of it! Elder Beckstead
