A Very Successful Baptism and Another Great Week!
Well first things first! Everything went well with the baptism! This last week was a little hectic, just with trying to make sure everything was ready, and contacting everyone on the program and things like that, but everything went pretty smoothly! And we were very grateful for that, baptisms are stressful enough when things go right! So it was good.
Other than that, we were able to meet with the young lady that showed up to church last week just randomly, and she is awesome! She loves everything that she has seen of the church so far. We invited her to be baptized on the 29th of January, and she accepted! We are meeting with her again tomorrow, and a side note on that is that we took a kid in our ward who is deciding whether or not to go on a mission, and he hasn't stopped talking with his family about the experience he had!
There was another cool thing that happened this week. An investigator that lived in a different ward moved into our ward this week, and we were able to help her out. She is really excited to be working with us now because she has a son that is 19 and is kind of struggling to find direction in his life, trying to figure out which way to go. The sisters in her other ward were sad to see her go, but I think that everything will work out. Hopefully we will be able to be an influence for good on the whole family.
Man... I can't believe that Sam and Jess are home! That is so crazy! Pretty soon it will be Jordan! And then.... weird!
I love you guys though, sorry to hear that your weather has been similar to ours - Dry and Warm - I want snow! I don't know if you guys feel the same way... but I want some snow! A lot of snow!
Anyways, I love you guys! Thanks for all the updates! Have a good week!
