Craziest Week Ever! Scaredy Squirrel/ Hospital Adventures

Scaredy Squirrel

This was one of the craziest weeks ever.
I would like to share some miracles that have happened in the last week.
We had a ward member last Sunday bring a friend to Church that he worked
with and she ended up knowing people in the ward who work in the hospital
with her and it was great! She loved it and she said she felt the
spirit really strong because she felt like it was all good. She had
been reading the Book of Mormon as well and felt that same Good
feeling. We set an appointment with her and the member that she knew
and that Wednesday day taught her the restoration. It all clicked with
her and she learned that she needed to read the Book of Mormon to get
her answer. She then prayed to know as well. We saw her the next day
at dinner with our other member and had some concern do to CNN and
Joseph Smith having 40 wife's. So our member just point blank told her
the doctrine of polygamy and how it ties into the dispensation of the
fullness of times. She had no concerns after that which was cool, we
then taught her what the standard works were. So we were then able
to give her a scripture reference for doctrine in all the scriptures. So
during the whole time our member who brought her to church was
teaching her more and more stuff and they had to go to the hospital
which wasn't too bad because she worked and lived right next to the
hospital so she got to visit us more than anyone else.
Now the Miracle, we had a baptism for a investigator the sisters were
teaching and Adrienne heard of it and wanted to go. She went and
afterward she said that she wanted to be baptized. So Wednesday we're
going to meet with her, invite her to pray about a day and see how
things go from there.


Miguel is the son of a part-member family. His mom and sister are
members and his dad, who is not a member, doesn't live with them.
So a year ago Miguel asked. If he could be baptized and his dad took
him into a room, yelled and him and told him he could. when elder
Scrogham got her we told him to pray for the day he wants to be
baptized. Everyone thought we were crazy. He prayed and got a date. we
have been teaching him how to teach us so that when he is ready, he
can me solid and if his dad ask questions he could answer. this last
weekend was Miguel's last week before his baptism to ask. he prepare
for the big talk with his dad by reading the Book of Mormon daily. He
asked his dad and his dad said YES! He followed up and asked if he
would serve a mission and not go to school. He said that he would go
to a year of college then go on a mission. It was so crazy To find
that out. This mean we should be having a baptism this week. Woot

So Thursday I was having some pretty bad constant stomach pains and 
the pains got slowly worse. Our doctor in the ward said to wait 24 hours
and see what happens. I got a blessing form my comp and a member but that
night was the worst night of my life. I thought was going to die it was so
miserable, no sleep, couldn't move, woke up and the pain was worse. I
could only walk doubled over. Sometimes the pains got so bad I would
have to crawl. We got to the urgent care that morning and they told us
to get to the hospital. So we rushed to the ER.  Stayed in the hospital a 
couple of days but didn't need surgery.  Everything just compacted.
Feeling better now.

That's it for now. Good bless and keep up the good work! Elder Herdt
