Just a short letter today; I'm very short on time. This week wasn't too bad!
Today is a pretty rainy, but we're going to go fishing anyway. I actually just
bought my own tackle box and I'm starting to get a few of some of the basics so
I don't have to depend of my companion for them. I've always wanted to learn
more about fishing and it's fun to finally be able to.
This last weekend was Sister Winter's baptism and confirmation! It was really
cool to see. It's the fourth convert baptism that I've been to on my mission,
and the third in my own area. It took a lot of planning, but everything went
off great and there weren't really any problems that happened, which was nice.
There was a great turnout too, which we were excited about because it showed a
lot of support for the Winters family. They're really a nice family, and we
like them a lot. Elder Poulsen came down for the baptism and baptized Sister
Winters, which was cool. It was good to see him again. His companion is
actually Elder Gilson right now, who was one of my companions in the MTC along
with Elder Blackhurst. Two other missionaries came, so there were six of us
total, and we all had a good experience. Sister Winters was excited for
everything too and seemed to have her own special glow all weekend. It was good
to be there for her baptism and confirmation. I know that she's on the right
track and I am thrilled to think of the blessings that will come as they
continue to move forward as a family and work towards going to the temple in a
year. Here are a few pictures for everyone.
Love you all, have a good week, and Happy Birthday again, Megan!
