Hey there! It's been a great week. Andrew got baptized and it was so
awesome. His nonmember parents came and they loved it. His dad seemed
really touched. His mom drove from Susanville or something just to
come see him be baptized. The only member in Andrew's family is his
Grandma and she loved being able to see him be baptized. Andrew was
baptized by a Brother in the Ward who Andrew has always looked up to
named Brother Hagge. It was a great baptism and I'm so glad I got to
be there for it. The next day we confirmed him and he asked me to be
voice for it. I was nervous because it had been a while but once it
started I remembered that I didn't need to be nervous because the
spirit would let me know what to say.
we had ZTM so we had to drive up to Oregon. It's so weird to
say that being in California and all. It was a great meeting but there
is so much flooding going on that we had to drive through a couple
rivers just to get up to Klamath Falls. I love the Zone we have here
and I wish we got to see them more. It's always a treat to be with
them all. we have interviews with President and we are
excited for that.
Besides that we have just been working hard. We found a new
investigator named Dane who seems really interested. He said he'd come
to church but got sick and called the church phone to let us know. It
was very nice of him. Mark is making his way toward baptism. He's
regaining the trust of his Wife and son since he is sober now for
about a month. If he can just keep off everything and stay away from
the chew he's going to make it. Brandi is struggling. I knew that when
Elder Willits left she would struggle. She loved him a ton and after
he left she got pretty sad. We are working with her but had to take
her off date until she is ready to commit. She is such a good gal and
we hope we can help her.
Great week and fun times. Elder Ross is a great comp. he's so funny.
Anyway have a great week!!!
