M----- is ready, he has progressed greatly this week and in a lesson we had with him yesterday he asked us if we think he is prepared for baptism and we of course told him yes and testified of the change we've seen in him after which his wife told him she knows that he is ready and bore her testimony of the truthfulness of this and of her desire to have an eternal family. In a lesson earlier this week, he had mentioned a desire to wait for his son to get home to baptize him, we had explained why he doesn't need to wait and that he should be ready to be sealed with his son when he gets home. So this week he voiced his desire to have an eternal family and at the end of this lesson his wife said to us that it makes her really happy to hear that from him and bore testimony in tears of the reality of eternal families. So he is going to be baptized this Saturday. It should be a great Christmas!
We are working better with members and have roughly doubled the number of lessons with members this week so we'll just have to continue with that. The members are in general well disposed to help so it's not too hard.
