Week 46!

September 1st, 2014

Well, this week has been slow but wonderful!

So again, we stayed in most of the week... this was week 4 of being inside with a 100 degree fever... ugh.... but then Tuesday one of our less active members we go see had her baby!! she was having really bad labor pains for 3 weeks and the baby wouldn't engage because the umbilical cord was wrapped around the babies neck THREE times!!!!!!! But she is a healthy 6lbs 4oz :) Her name is Davynna (Duh-vee-nuh).  I also got to dye sister Johnson's hair. it was supposed to be like a chestnut auburn and it turned out burgundy!!! yikes..... looks good but definitely not natural. But most of the week was spent getting ready for Byron's Baptism!!!! we had zone conference on Friday and President Turner is changing the whole outlook on the mission and on baptism and goals and everything! I think its going to be SO wonderful :) Then Saturday was Byron's Baptism! Our Ward mission leader was out of town so it was pretty much all on us but it turned out so well and went off without a hitch! :) The spirit was SO strong and I got to sing at the baptism. he was crying in the font and then when he came up, he had the BIGGEST smile on his face I have ever seen :) it was SO wonderful :) then we got to go out to lunch with him and some members who came from other wards to see him get baptized and then also a family from our ward that knew him before he started investigating. it was so great. then sunday we went and he got confirmed AND got ordained to be a PRIEST all in one day!!!! it was so amazing!!!!! :) it had basically been just a wonderful week :) slow but wonderful! :) But please pray for Sister Susan Anderson in my mission.... she went into the ICU a couple days ago with a severe blood clot in her leg that moved into her lungs. she is a wonderful missionary and a great friend of mine. Well i love ya'll!!! :)
Happy Labor Day! :)

OH! I almost forgot... I spent a couple days making this as a gift for Byron for his baptism. We put a picture of Christ as a cover for a book of Mormon and then put Sister Bell, SIster Johnson and My testimonies in it along with having people write notes to him on cute paper at the baptism and gluing it in and put a picture of all of us at his baptism :) and then marked up his favorite scripture and made him a book mark to mark it :)
