This is has been an exciting year to share the gospel with others. As the Ward mission leader, I've been lucky enough to be involved with some exciting things and to see the lives of people changed in a very positive way.
In May, Rick Pietzmirer was baptized. He was also married to Sarah in July and they are planning to be married for time and eternity in the temple.
In September, after one year of being members of the church, Bob & Fe Beck were married in the Mesa Temple for time and eternity. It was awesome to be there and feel the spirit and know that the Lord was so pleased with the decisions and the actions that this great couple have taken. Also, their daughter Amira was sealed to them so they can be together forever as a family after this life. Bob loves to share what the church has brought to him and his family and what it can bring to so many others.
And in November, Bob had the great honor of baptizing his daughter Amira. We are so grateful to have such amazing examples among us.
The past 2 months, we had the great blessing to teach Matia Weiss about Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father, and the plan of happiness. She is 10 years old and her sister Monique wanted to make sure that Matia received the blessings of the gospel in her life. I had the opportunity to bring my daughter Brittany to some of the lessons. Matia has a great spirit. She was baptized on Dec. 11 by Elder Wallace and I had the opportunity to confirm her a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Sunday Dec. 16.
