DJ Deliverance

Hi everybody! I hope that you all had a wonderful week!  Last week was great! Elder Webster and I found a few new investigators and we had some really good lessons with people we’re teaching right now!  One of the lessons we had that went really well was with a brother and
sister we found a couple of weeks ago. They were both raised catholic but aren’t sure what they believe. They both have a ton of really good questions and they both have the desire to learn more! It’s been awesome to see them grow in their understand of the gospel over the
last couple of lessons. We have a lesson tonight and are going to try to set a baptismal date with them!

Another really great lesson we had was with an investigator named Connie. She has been taught in the past but we felt like we should see her again. We had some of the ward missionaries come with us and they were both awesome! We taught her about the restoration and she seems really excited about the gospel! She feels like this will help her draw closer to God and we prom I see her that it will.

One of my favorite things about being a district leader is being able to conduct baptismal interviews! The sisters in a neighboring ward had a baptism on Saturday and I got to interview the man being baptized on Friday. His name is Chad but he’s a Christian rapper and DJ so he goes by DJ Deliverance. He was really awesome and ready to make this covenant with God! He even went to his boss a few weeks ago and said that he couldn’t work on Sundays anymore because he need to go to church and take the sacrament each week! How cool is that?! I was glad that I was able to meet him, interview him and go to his baptism on Saturday. After his baptism he did a freestyle rap on what it was like to get baptized! It inspired me and a couple of other elders to work on our freestyle rapping skills 😎🎅🏿

On a more serious note I’m so glad that Chad chose to be baptized by someone holding the priesthood of God! The man who baptized him is a bishop in one of the wards Elder Webster served in. He said that he was praying a couple of weeks ago that he would be able to help
someone get baptized. Three days later he got a message from his old high school buddy Chad who said that he would like this bishop to baptize him! What an awesome answer to a humble prayer!  I know that God will answer all of our prayers. It may not be the way that we want but He loves us and listens to us. I also know that baptism is part of God’s plan for us. I’m so glad that I chose to be baptized when I was eight. I’ve seen so many blessings come into my life because of that choice!

I love you all and hope you have a great week!
