October 28, 2013

This week was crazy busy. On Monday we participated in a wedding. Just the legal part. (We were in the court room and I thought about Kelly and his court room.) It was cool to be part of the wedding. The wedding was for an investigator and a member who needed to get married to complete the requirements for baptism. My companion baptized the daughter and I baptized the mom on Saturday.  It was a cool experience. The mom shared her experience of the baptism after the ordinance. She said, "When I entered in the water it was really cold, but as soon as Elder Rucker started the prayer I felt the water warm and warm my body. I know that it was the Holy Ghost." The spirit was there and she felt it and the others in the service felt it too.

We had two conferences this week, a zone conference and a district conference. An Area Seventy came and gave a great talk. I learned a lot and sang in the choir. So all Friday, Saturday and Sunday we were running around all of Armenia to prepare for the conferences and the baptisms.

I don’t know if I told you but we live with the Zone Leaders. One night while we were planning for the next day we heard the Zone Leaders outside the house. They were about to open the door when we heard screaming. My companion and I ran outside to see our Zone Leaders jumping and screaming "SAPO, SAPO" (sapo = Toad) So, anyways, we caught a toad!

Mitchell most likely told you but just in case he didn't—I will tell you.  My companion said his grandparents were receiving the missionaries, well Mitchell is teaching his grandparents. How neat is that?

I know it is only a little writing but that is a lot of stuff that passed.

That’s all for this week.

I love you so much.

p.s. How is the family doing on church attendance and my challenge? How is the family in general?
