Short & Sweet

Sad News: E** did not get baptized. He passed his interview and everything. The problem is his dad and grandpa. They kept up with their problems, excuses, and doubts; so, in the end, E** did not get baptized..... We´ll see what happens. Now he won't be able to be baptized until May at the soonest  :(

That was the main thing that happened this week. We walked a ton because basically all of our appointments fell through for some reason. But we did have some good contacts.

One of the few lessons we had was with an investigator who co-habitates with a less active. We taught him the Plan of Salvation. Wow, I've never seen someone get soooo excited about the Plan of Salvation. Usually there is some excitement but this guy, wow, he was really excited. Like more excited than Pepper [our dog] when Dad gets home. Ya, really excited. What called his attention most was the Resurrection and the fact that everyone will be resurrected - the good and the bad. Also, he loved the thought of the Celestial Kingdom. He told us that he is willing to do anything to be able to go there with his family. Little does he know that he just committed to getting married! Anyways, it was great seeing the light in his eyes as we taught and testified. It really was something else. Like a little kid on Christmas morning (one that's not getting coal in his stocking).

So ya. That was my week. Short and Sweet - like one of Mom´s mini-cupcakes   :)

Never underestimate the power of bubbles. They can turn any adult into a little kid again :)
Love you all!
