Another week in Morton. It was a pretty great week. The highlight was that we were teaching Margret Bjork, our investigator, and she got her answer to the Book of Mormon right in front of us! It was amazing! We were reading through Moroni 10 and when we got to verse 8 it was her turn to read. She got about halfway through the verse and just stopped and looked up and said, "This is all true, isn't it?" She started crying and was just overjoyed. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. It was me, my companion, elder Pierre our zone leader, and her. The spirit just flooded the room. This was probably the strongest I've ever felt the spirit. She accepted when we asked her to be baptized on September 5th! And she committed to come to church. She ended up not being able to come to church because she couldn't get her handicap daughter ready on time and she didn't want to be late. We stopped by after church to see what was going on and found everything out. Unfortunately we are going to have to push her date for baptism back, but she is still on board. That's pretty much the biggest news. Everything else was just regular missionary work. Same thing everyday.
But something really funny about him. He's black and also a member of the kkk. He wanted to dress up like them for Halloween so he signed up online and they sent him the official cape and hat and everything, it's super funny.
Pray for Margret! Love you all. G. Franklin Scherer 1319 Butterfield Rd Suite 522 Downers Grove, Illinois 60515 USA
