Chapter 49

So this week was pretty much legit! As i told you last week, 2 of our investigators got baptized on saturday! XD  Their baptism was soooo awesome, especially when they came out of the waters after being baptized XD.  You could see the happiness shine forth from their faces :).  Honestly, seeing someone be baptized has become one of my favorite things, especially as a missionary because you see just how much they have drawn closer to their savior and heavenly father and the wonderful relationship they are building with him XD.  And when they are done being baptized you can see the joy and light they have in their eyes because they can feel that all their sins have been washed away and that they have a clean slate now XD.  BAPTISM IS AWESOME!!!!! hahahaha XD. 
Another awesome thing that happened this week is we were able to begin teaching this less-active member who really wants to turn her life around.  She called us up earlier on last week asking if we could come and meet with her because she wants to start coming to church again and wants to take the missionary discussions because she has been less-active for awhile now and wants to get foundation on the gospel once again XD.  So we set up a time and were able to meet with her and she has such a strong desire to come back to church it's awesome XD.  Honestly, i love being a missionary hahahaha XD.  The joy that comes from seeing people progress in the gospel, as they come to church/read their scriptures/and pray to their heavenly father, and feel their heavenly father's love in their life is incomparable to anything i have experienced XD.
So the last awesome experience i have to share that happened this week is we had stake conference on sunday! XD.  Man, was it a good stake conference too.  It was all centered on missionary work and the speakers that gave talks were awesome XD.  But the thing i liked most about it was that it wasn't all just about going on a mission, but being a member missionary where you live by reaching out to those around you and trying to share the gospel with those you know in your life.  I seriously love the Ririe Stake because everyone here is so missionary minded and are always coming up to us with friends they have that they have asked if they would like to take the missionary discussion and have said yes XD.
Well, That's all i have to report on this week so i am going to end this email here.  Love ya and peace out till next week XD.
With love,
