The One where Cameron gets baptized!

Hey everyone!

This was an interesting week!

Monday was transfer Monday. I got Elder Taito as my new companion! It is going to be a fun transfer haha! We didn't do much except for shopping and such. We went out with Brother Schm*** to see Brother Fau*** and the Poncer***'s. We had a great time at both of them. We didn't teach Brother Fau*** but we taught the Poncer***'s about Captain Moroni and how we can overcome the temptations we go through.

Tuesday morning we drove to the stake center to do some stuff on the computers at the family history center. We then had a new district leader training with Elder Kelsey, the new district leader in our zone. We had a good time with him and I hope he was able to learn something from it all. We had a lesson with Sister Mos*** that went really well. We started going over the Restoration again with her to bring the Spirit into her home. She picked up a ton from it so that was pretty awesome. We contacted people and had dinner before going to the Book of Mormon class. Sister Mos*** came with her daughter and we talked about the introduction. A RM who served in the OEM and came back was there and he helped out a ton! We then went around with him and he suggested people we could go see and even helped us OYM a guy named Aaron and got a return appointment with him!

Wednesday we spent the morning organizing our area book and stuff before grabbing lunch. We then went out and tried to visit some people but we didn't have much luck. We tried tracting but we had a tough crowd haha but we had fun while doing it! We had an awesome dinner with the Beans. While we were there, Sister Bean told us about a member in Utah who got in contact with the Beans and asked if the Elders could give his sister a blessing. After visiting with the Coom***'s and waiting on Aaron, we picked up the 3rd Ward Elders and gave the lady a blessing. It will be interesting to see what happens with her.

Thursday was pretty slow. Did weekly planning, taught a couple of lessons, met the new missionaries, and I locked us out of the church haha!

Friday we had new missionary training followed by district meeting. It went well and I learned a lot. We did a power hour of tracting but nothing came from it. We had a lesson with the Poncer***'s and Cameron before going to dinner. There was a ton of smoke in the valley, almost to the point where we couldn't breathe! Regardless, we OYM'd two guys and they both said they

Saturday was Cameron's baptism! It was such an amazing experience to be able to teach him and see him be baptized! We visited with the Hea***'s after and then Brother Robe*** called us to give us a referral. We ended up talking to this referral and he wants to get baptized! It is super sweet!

Sunday Cameron was confirmed and we had an awesome testimony meeting! it was so cool! We then tried contacting people after church before seeing the McHat***'s and doing some baptismal interviews.

Sorry that it got short at the end, I just wanted to get it all in! I love y'all!
