Hope Ya’lls week has been a good one. Hope everyone enjoys Halloween. This has been another good week for us. The work is just moving forward a lot in this area right now. We have been more busy these last couple weeks than any other time on my mission. It has been awesome! We have been teaching lots of people. We have two on date to be baptized! We also have some others who are kinda close. It has been great!
We had some more great lessons this week with investigators. I love the spirit in the lessons. We also found a new investigator this week who has good potential of moving forward with baptism. We got to help downtown this week at the city scarecrow stroll. We, the missionaries, were in charge of the human hamster balls. It was a blast! We got to use them a couple times. After that, we got to help out at the ward trunk or treat. That turned out to be pretty good.
This week I also got to baptize someone for the first time. One of the families in the ward asked me to baptize their 8 year old son. It was an amazing experience! While we were sitting before the baptism dressed in white the spirit was so strong. It felt very peaceful and comforting. The actual baptism was really neat too. It was just cool to be able to perform that and think about how significant that ordinance is.
Our investigators came to church this week and loved it! It was awesome! They are going to a members house for dinner this week. It’s cool to see them go tho church just because they love it so much. Also this week I found a guy who is going to lend me a raccoon trap. So hopefully in the next couple weeks I will have caught my own raccoon. He said he would help me with the process of making a raccoon hat.
This morning we finally went fishing. It felt like it has been forever. It felt so good to go. The last senior couple here gave me their fishing pole when they left and I caught my first two fish on it this morning. I caught a Largemouth Bass and a Bream. We are going to deep fry them this afternoon along with a bunch of catfish that I caught awhile ago. I’m super stoked for that! We may throw in some chicken too. Things are going great here though. I hope ya’ll have a great week. Thanks for everything.
