Letter #45 - Baptism!

August 14, 2017

Dear Friends and Family,

This past week was very eventful and very busy! Last Sunday, a man who
was not a member, but who has been married to a member for over a
decade, stood up and announced that he finally knew the Book of Mormon
was true and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was
Christ's church on the earth today. We already had a baptism set up
for Melissa on Saturday and they asked if he could be baptized then as
well. We had to move quick to go through all the lessons and set up
his interview, but it got done! He had been coming to church for years
and even had a calling. He paid tithing and was considered a dry
Mormon, but he is no longer! It was a wonderful event and there were
around 100 people at the baptism. It was awesome. That being said,
Melissa was also baptized and I have felt so blessed to be a part of
her journey. I have truly felt God's love for her and her family. They
have made such a big step forward in their lives and I know she will
be a blessing to her family as they already have been in her life.
Thanks for all of your love and support!

Letter #44 - One Year!

July 24, 2017

Dear Friends and Family,

This past week I hit my year mark. I am so grateful that I have been
able to be out this long and look forward to completing the remaining
7 months. I love having six hours of church on Sunday, but being over
two wards has been a little overwhelming. The good news is that we
will have a baptism this next month. Her name is Melissa and she is a
pre-teen who started coming to church with her friend. She has faced a
lot of opposition from friends and family in her decision to be
baptized, but she is staying strong and is such a wonderful example to
me. Other than that we have been working to learn the area and meet
the members and teach the recent converts. Life has been good. Hope
you are doing well!

Letter #43 - Quick Update

July 10, 2017

Dear Family and Friends,

Transfer news today and the trio is getting broken up. I'll be staying
here and my two companions will be going to different areas. I'll be
getting a new companion (7 in 7 months), Sister Mosher.

I hope you are all having a fun and cool summer. It has stayed nice
and cool here in Texas. It doesn't usually get past the mid 90s, which
is excellent for this area. Hopefully it stays that way.
