How are all of you?
I'm doing very well thank you :)
This week was a very stressful week, but a big miracle happened.
Last week, one of the people who was baptized was unable to get confirmed on Sunday in Sacrament Meeting because her husband went kind of crazy and locked him, her, and the whole family inside with the only keys to the house.
This week, we couldn't find her at any good time to talk and make plans for the next week, until Friday. We went over, waited for her to come out, played with her kids. But, she was acting strange and didn't talk to us. She just sent her kid out to say that she was going to go with her sister on vacation at 4 o'clock that day and would be there until Monday. We were dumbfounded, without any way of communicating with her or changing her mind or anything. We passed by later, and their gate was locked and everything.
I didn't know what to do.
Then, the next day, we decided to just pass by out of a dying hope that she would be there or that we could do something. AND SHE WAS THERE!!! She got a splitting headache that day and decided not to go. She still had that headache, so we gave her a blessing and helped her clean her house for 2 hours, with great excitement that she would get confirmed the next day.

Then, strangely enough, her husband didn't have work AGAIN on Sunday (which is rare). He came out and yelled at us for the 2nd week in a row, this time with more dynamic swear words and a couple threats. He prevented his wife again. BUT! God always puts the means by which those who desire to go into his kingdom can.
We were able to get permission to confirm her at her house when her husband wasn't there. And everything turned out ok. She has an incredibly strong testimony and truly wants to follow God. She did everything she could. And God showed his merciful hand to us.
The Gospel is true, and God will and does help us every step along the way. All we have to do is walk.
Love you all!
