11 February 2013

Hello family!!!!

So the baptism went really well!  The whole ward showed up for it and supported her!  That is awesome. The spirit was so strong there!  Her nonmember parents were there and during the baptism I saw them tearing up, they were feeling the spirit there big time!  So we are hoping soon that we will be able to unit them as a family in the gospel! 

This Saturday we have the baptism of AJ and Alyssa!  They are doing so good!  They understand everything and are really excited to be baptized!  Their uncle from out of town is coming to do the actual baptism and confirmation!  It’s going to be really good!  I’m so excited for them! 

Next week is transfers!!  I can’t believe it, time is going by so fast here!  I’m really enjoying the people here and the town!  It’s a small town and everyone is so nice! 

So last Wednesday we went on an exchange, I went down to Bakersfield!!!  It was awesome to be back!!!  I really have missed that place.  We had such a good day!  We taught tons of lessons and set a few people with a date!  The missionary I was with was new into the mission and had what we call "Greenie Fire!!"  It was nice to feel the excitement of a new missionary again and work really hard! 

I’m doing great!  Things out here are perfect!  I have a good companion and a great area! 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!! 

Love you all,
