First baptism! And Zone Conference!

Man it is great to be on a Mission!
This last week was our first Baptism and it was awesome! It was also
my first time to baptize someone. Everyone there could feel the spirit
so strong. Overall it was an amazing experience.
Hopefully we get to see some more baptisms soon. The people we are
teaching are all progressing very well and fast. One family we’re
teaching — the dad quit smoking. It’s day 5 for him now! The rest of his
family is also doing very well. We went over the baptismal interview
questions with them and it seems that they are all ready for the next
step.
Another family were teaching is doing very good. They have 4
children under 5 years old and are just an awesome family. They have a
lot of intelligent questions so it is hard to get through the lessons,
but I think they know pretty well now that the church is true. they
have attended church about 8 weeks now!
We had zone conference this last week that was really neat. We got
to listen to are Mission President and some of are leaders. In-between
meetings, some church members made us a great lunch and we sang to
them in return. I don’t know if it was worth it to them to hear my
singing, but everyone else sang very well 🙂
Anyway, things are continuing to go great for me here in Bakersfield
and I am always super happy to receive letters!
