Moore town 8.17.15

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.
