This week was so Flippin awesome. We were pretty busy this week with
exchanges with other elders and also we had interviews with President
this week. One of the highlights of this week though was that Kameka
and Hallie both got baptized on Saturday. They are the first baptism
in this Ward in over a year. It was such a spiritual baptism. Elder
hinds was able to baptize Hallie and brother Lemmon baptized Kameka.
The spirit was so strong there. So many of the young women and leaders
where there. We even had the stake president there as well. Later that
day we went to Whiteriver for Kameka's birthday party. We talked with
Esau and Emily who are the guardians for Kameka and Hallie about the
baptism. They said they it was such a nice service and that it was
something that you just had to be there for. She said that to her
friends. We know they felt the spirit and hopefully we can start
teaching them too!
The next day we had their confirmations. Elder Hinds did Kameka and I
did Hallie. A lady came up to us afterwards and told us that she was
sitting far away from us but could feel the Holy Ghost so much. She
said this is the first time she has ever felt it so strongly. That
made me happy. They also got their temple recommends so they will be
able to go with the youth to do baptisms for the dead.
Next week we will be having the baptism for Steve Ohlau. It is so
exciting to see the fruits of your labors.
We also met this week with Isaac and Jeremy Brown. We had our stake
president come to that lesson with us. The spirit was so strong and we
help them recognize the importance of the priesthood and why we need
to be baptized by that priesthood authority. The spirit was really
strong in the lesson. Hopefully we can help guide them towards baptism
and make at first step towards Christ.
Well I love you all! Keep being awesome!
