Burmese Baptism


Well this week has been a bit stressful, but we made it through. And it all ended with a baptism! Wahoo! So exciting, but a little bit about the week first.

Well this week was pretty normal. But we did get a random phone call from one of our potentials friends who said they had gotten our number from a friend and that they were interested in meeting up. It was pretty crazy cause if you know anything about England this kinda stuff never happens ha ha, but we set a time and met up with her. Turns out she is a film student and for a big project she is making a documentary about how to choose a Christian church. We of course we're happy to help her know how to make that decision. With the mission presidents permission, we are going to be a part of her movie! It's not a feature film or anything but hey it was pretty fun getting interviewed. We even had the cool microphones that you hook to your tie like they always do on TV. We were talking after the filming and she chose this topic for her project because she also is looking for a Christian church to join. We are going to be meeting with her to teach her more this week. I'm really excited about teaching her she is way cool.

Next on the list was Lin's baptism! It was a bit stressful trying to get Lin taught everything he needed to know before Sunday.  We have only been meeting with him for two weeks, so teaching him all the lessons was a bit tight with his busy schedule. But we made it through and on Sunday after church Lin was baptized! It was such a great experience but I was a little stressed with trying to make sure it ran smoothly. There were bumps but we got him dunked and now I can breath again. Elder Torres was the one that performed the baptism and it was his first time baptizing someone. When I asked Lin afterwords how he felt he said that as soon as he hit the water his feelings became indescribable. He said awesome was just not a good enough word for how he felt. I love that guy and I'm so happy that he got baptized. He is just the greatest.

Other than that the week was fairly normal. We had an exchange with the zone leaders which is always fun. Elder Kerr is a crazy nutcase but it was loads of fun.

I'm sorry to hear that Ems failed her test. Don't worry little punk you'll pass next time! Brigham is homeless, homeless like the Christ child was, ha ha! Don't worry about Tyler Beckstrand, Alan Buys is in Ghana and he will take good care of him.

Hope all is well is sunny Centerville, cause it rains all the time here.
