So as many of you know I’ve had to opportunity to help start a business. During the beginning stages of everything I mentioned to Dianne (the person that I’m in business with) that I was LDS, The next conversation with her she asked if I had my temple card. I told her I did and after that I became the question, answer guy. She grilled me for about two weeks about different topics and subjects of the church and the gospel. I told mom and dad about it and mom asked if she had a Book of Mormon. She didn’t and Ashley remembered that Platt was living in Laramie WY. So I tracked a number down for Platt and asked him to get her a Book of Mormon. It was over from there. Dianne couldn’t put the book down. Platt had become her new best friend.
Keep in mind that I had never meet Dianne in person.
Well the questions kept coming and at one stage she started to get sick. I explained to her about priesthood blessing and told her that Platt could come by with someone to give her one if she wanted. She was a little skeptical at first but did a little research and then scheduled it herself. She thought it was awesome and wanted everyone to get one and wanted to put it on her blog so everyone would know that they could have one. She was really on fire.
Well this was about 4-5 weeks ago. She kept reading and learning. Then she started telling people that she was a dry Mormon and she found out that there are a lot of people that she knew that were also members. We work with companies across the country and one guy (the ceo of one of our SIP trunk providers) told her that he was prompted by the spirit to tell her that he was LDS. This just kept happening to her. Well she was getting ready to move to Nampa and didn’t really want to go to church there but wanted to go here. She moved here two weeks ago
today. She went to church the first time 2 Sundays ago. Two Wednesdays ago she meet with the missionaries for the first time and her first question to them was “how soon can I get baptized?” There question was “When was the last time you had a cigarette?” Her response, “Yesterday”. Missionaries “A week from tomorrow”. And thats exactly what happened. I had the opportunity of baptizing and confirming Dianne a member of the church last night. She couldn’t even get any work done yesterday she was so excited. She can’t wait until she can go to the temple and she keeps bugging the bishop to make her a ward missionary. She is pretty cool and this has been a pretty awesome experience for Ashley and I.
