Yr. 2 - Week 10: They Invited 40 Friends and it was PACKED

Dear Family and Friends,

Well, the baptism and Sunday was the biggest thing that happened this week. The week was so calm and I wasn't stressed about the baptism at all. Our ward mission leader was awesome, he took care of the font, the program, etc. The ward had a lot of support, especially the primary who did a special FHE at the G. house on Monday about baptism. Anyways, Sunday was awesome. There was a great turn out at church and one of the members in the ward brought her friend and so we sat with them. It was fast and testimony meeting and the member bore her testimony which was awesome. Also, J.L. (C. and L's older brother) bore his testimony and lots of the primary and youth did the same. It was SOOO AWESOME, probably the best testimony meeting I've been in!!! The spirit was strong. 

For the baptism, the G's invited about 40 friends and it was PACKED. Most of them weren't members so it was even cooler. President and Hermana Wright came and just loved talking with the members and the G. family. They asked us all about our story and it was really neat. The actual ordinance was fantastic. Afterwards, L's friend said, "Man I wanna get baptized like that!!!" Then he asked me, "Is the water warm?" I said yes. "WOW," he said. We are going to start teaching him and his mom. Also, while waiting in the foyer. I saw a mom and her son walk in look around a big outside and then start to leave. I had never seen them before so I stopped to talk and she and her son M. were so interested that they said we could share a short message with them another day :) It was sweet, we'll see how that goes. L. and C. are so happy, it was great. We were talking to J. and he said to us, "Well Elders we did it... Now let's start to work!" :D YEAH BABY!!!! 

In the next few weeks we are going to be doing a play for missionary work as a ward. The youth are helping us do a play about the Plan of Salvation. It's pretty sweet so far but we'll see how it goes. We're applying a lot of cool ideas :) 

Elder Muzante and I are looking for more investigators. We are contacting, asking for references, and doing anything/everything possible to get some new investigators. Hopefully some of the G's friends and some other possibilities that we have will turn out so that we can get the ball rolling :D

So I got the package! THANKS SO MUCH! I love the calendar, I already hung it up! I'm learning to do the Rubiks Cube with one hand ;) We've been enjoying all the treats and thanks so much for the letters! I appreciate it so much family, for the sacrifice it is to send me stuff like this!!! You are the best, LOVE YOU ALL!

Anyways, that's pretty much our week! Things went well :) We're stoked for this upcoming change now that today is changes and we are staying...obviously! :D

Love you all, BYE!"!!
