"It's getting cold outside, good thing the water's warm!" -November 21st, 2016

Hello again! 

I hope you all had a lovely week. We definitely did here in the promised land of Prattville! 

Like I mentioned last week, we had Zone Conference on Wednesday and it was a good meeting. Very long but good still. A change was recently made in our mission so that now we have a Zone Conference and Interviews with President once every transfer. So lots of meetings! Pretty much one every week.

Then on Thursday and Friday we were mainly taking care of administrative things and making preparations for our two baptisms on Saturday

Then on Saturday we had the immense privileged to witness two of our investigators make a sacred covenant with our Father in Heaven and be baptized. The first one was Tracy! We've been teaching Tracy ever since I got to Prattville and he's awesome. He's the brother of a member and lives with their family. It was amazing to see the light of Christ working on him and preparing him to be baptized. And also being able to see him work together with his sister and brother in-law to prepare and learn as many things as he could before he made that step.

The next was a 14 year old girl name Rachel. She's a friend of a part member family that we've been working with. Her whole journey was actually a pretty quick one! We would teach her every once and a while when she was in their house the all of a sudden she got a lot more serious about ti and she decided to be baptized. Two weeks later, she was! It was a fantastic experience and I'm so grateful for the opportunity that we had to participate in the little way that we did. All we are is a mouthpiece for the Spirit and an instrument in the Lords hands. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be just that for these two years. 

It's starting to get pretty cold here so we made sure that the water in the font was nice and warm:) 
It was a lot of preparation but it payed off for both baptisms. It was definitely a perfect Saturday

This week we've got a Zone Training so we've been planning for that. It's also Thanksgiving so I hope y'all have a great day! I also hope that everyone can think about the true purpose behind this holiday and not just turkey and gravy;) 

Love you guys!
