The Gospel is for everyone!

November 3
Dear Family,

This week Tanya was baptized!!!! It is such a miracle. For those who don't remember, Tanya is the lady we found who is deaf, and she knew a little bit of American Sign Language (which I learned in high school). But ended up that she didn't know very much, and most of her signing was finger spelling. *In Australia, they have a completely different sign language, it is called Auslan. So my companion and I have been learning Auslan, and interpreting for Tanya when she's come to church. On her very first Sunday, a member came up to us and said that he learned Auslan while on his mission - the only member here who knows Auslan, and he lives in our ward!!! What a miracle. Though it was a bit difficult to communicate at first, she really has a sincere desire to follow Jesus Christ, and live his gospel (teachings). She is such a testimony to me that the gospel truly is for everyone! This is on the day of her baptism, look at that precious smile. It was a beautiful day.
I love you all, have a wonderful rest of your week!
