We survived Spring Break!
Another week down in the MBM.
It was surprisingly good too. I thought it would suck cause
it's spring break here so all of our investigators and members are gone, but it
turned out well. We stayed pretty busy for the most part and had more lessons
than we expected.
One of the things that kept us pretty busy all week was
exchanges. We went to every Elders area in the zone and blitzed their area. We
just tried to find some new investigators and get some good things going to
help out as much as possible. It was fun because the splits were only like 4
hours long so we just went hard for those 4 hours. We found some new
investigators so that was good.
Along with that we did Zone Training this last Friday. It
was one of the better ones we've been a part of. I really felt the spirit in
it. For me I really like the message of hope that it gave. We just have to
trust in the Lord that there is people to be found. Sometimes we lose focus of
that simple truth.
The biggest news of this week was the baptism of Kelsie. It
was one of the best baptisms I've been to. She was more than ready and she had
so much support. I think there was around 55 people there. She had a bunch of
family and friends come up from Utah to support her and her family from
Hamilton came as well. And just some members from the Ward too. It was really
well planned out so everything went really smoothly. Besides the fact that the
font only filled up to about a foot and a half of water. But besides that it
went really well. And her confirmation was great too. The whole day we were on
a high. And she already has a meeting set up with the bishop so she can get a
temple recommend. We are super happy for her!
That's the main stuff from this week! I hope your week goes
good too! Love you all!
