Happy News! Baptism!

August 1, 2016
Hey Friends and Family!!

It is August 1st... How in the heck did that happen?  Gross.! Yep,August is definitely the “armpit month” because everything turns yellow and brown and looks ugly. I hear in Kansas that August gets super-hot like “crawl in a hole and die” hot. Truth!

The happy news is that this week Ibet S. Got BAPTIZED!!!
 It was so amazing to see her take that step closer to the Savior! It was super stressful getting the baptism ready because my companion and I had no idea what we were doing, but the Lord provided a way.
 And even though some things went wrong, it all worked out in the end.  We did our very best and the Savior provided the rest!

This whole week we were pretty much just getting Ibet ready for her baptism.  A super cool thing is that her brother, Caesar, wants to take the lessons and learn more; so we are now teaching her brother.  He came to the baptism because Ibet wanted him there so badly (because he is her best friend.)  He also came to church that morning and loved it.

We also did service for another investigator because she had bed bugs and was moving so we just helped her clean out her closet and pack her clothes. We didn't go near the bed bugs because she didn't want us to. 

Today we have Zone P-day and are having a water fight and eating hamburgers so it’s pretty awesome.
I met an elder in our zone whose mom is from Zimbabwe but the part that is super close to South Africa.  His mom’s parents were from England. He is super cool. We have been talking and throwing the rugby ball around that he brought. 

Auntie Nese should have driven to KC and then stopped in Abilene and met with us!  It’s only a 30 hour drive or so hahaha !  …Or three hours from KC ahaha that would have been fun.  Jodi had her baby shower what the heck?  When is she due? I feel like it shouldn't be for a while but then again time moves so fast while on a mission can you believe I have almost been out for 6 months I have a year left... :O 

We had interviews with our new Mission President, President McCuistion last Tuesday and he remembered someone who knew me. It was really nice to get a chance to talk to him on a personal level. He is such a great mission president.
