Transfers - I’m staying here in Oxnard and my companion is heading out to San Luis Obispo. My new companion’s name is Elder McCrackin. I’m not sure how to spell it but that’s his name. He has been out for like 4 and a half months or so. Finally a companion who has been in the mission less time than me! ha ha
Well even more big news!!! Matthew is really getting baptized this Friday! His dad has been working on getting worthy enough to baptize him for like the last two years. Finally we felt impressed to ask him if he really was working on it. So in the lesson we had planned to ask him that question, before we could even ask him he said, “Elders let’s baptize my son, I’m tired of holding Matthew back.” So we had a lesson with Matthew and asked him if it would be okay if someone else besides his dad baptized him. He was totally okay with it and was excited that he was still getting baptized. He asked me if I would be the one to baptize him. So he is getting baptized Friday. I’m really humbled that he chose me to baptize him. It should be a lot of fun!
We had a big service project last Saturday called Mormon Helping Hands! It was a lot of fun, I got to smash stuff with a sledge hammer for about and two hours. It was a great time. We were clearing this big field of cement chunks so they can make a community garden there. It was cool to see so many members come out and help, there had to be around 250 people. We got a lot of work done.
