Baptism!!!! Teach Repentance and Baptize converts January 25,2016

So this was a really good week. We had one of our baptisms.

 We saw a lot of really cool miracles. There was this one lesson we had this week with one of our investigators. He used to be taught in a family ward but was then passed on to the YSA. So anyways for this lesson we tried to find a member to come with us but literally no one was available. We had to teach an "other lesson" which means without a member which isn't good to have. Well we got to the lesson and as we were beginning to teach a member from the family ward came un-notified. He said he felt prompted to come talk with him. So we had a member present lesson. It was really cool because we did everything to try and find a member and couldn't but Heavenly Father helped us out a little. It was a great lesson. 

This week we also had a worldwide missionary broadcast with the missionary executive committee. The focus of the training was to teach repentance and baptize converts. We heard from Elder Oaks, Bednar, and Anderson. As well as Bonnie Oscarson, Elder Waddell of the 70, and Elder Clayton. They gave us all some great advice on how to move the work forward. It is a great time to be a missionary in the mission field. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to serve where I am serving. Its a bias opinion but I'm in the greatest mission in the world. 

What to expect coming up. We are for sure having our baptism this next week and we are on tract to have our baptisms the following two weeks as well. Hopefully you are all doing well. 

Have a great week.

Funny Moment at the baptism

Forgot one of the highlights of the week. So at the baptism for some reason the door was locked to get into the font from the women's side. So we were going to try and unlock it from the inside. Well to get to that door we needed to somehow climb across the font without touching the water. The only way to do that was to hold onto the glass and walk across. Well as i was walking across. My leg slipped and fell into the water. Keep in mind i have my suit on. So my leg was wet all the way up to my calf. It was wet all during the baptism. We got a pretty good laugh out of it. No one noticed luckily. Good times.
