Well Elder McCleary is headed to Coos Bay. It's sad but we had a
killer last week. Shauna Haidyn and Hailey all were baptized and it
was amazing. The Stake President said it was the most touching Baptism
he'd seen in a long time. Afterward they were all just beaming. It was
so cool to see the change. So that's 3 new members of Springfield 3rd
Ward with more on the way.

My new companion is Elder Christiansen. He's a great guy, I've served
with him before. The only problem is that this is his last transfer
and it's my second to last transfer so we will have to keep each other
motivated. This is the 4th time I've had a companion going home. But I
know at least he'll be willing to work hard with me unlike some. We
have a few people to baptize here before the transfer ends.

We have been working with some great people. Shane is continuing to
progress to baptism. We also have a guy named Donnie who is all in. He
really wants to be baptized July 1st, the only issue is he's very
prideful. He wants the Priesthood so he can "get recognized for having
God's Authority"... so we have a lot to teach him.

Anyway a lot of good things going. I'm sure loving it. Talk to you
later. Love ya

~Elder S. Jackson Martin
