Fall is definitely in the air, or falling out of the air here…. it rains most if not every day now. This week seemed to drag on forever…. it was just a little bit slower this week. Also just a heads up that pday will be on Thursday of next week, we are going to the temple so it will be a short pday as well.
Carl and his wife are awesome! Carl is really excited for his baptism. His wife is a little bit hesitant so it might take her some more time to prepare. Carl came to church and loved it! He has made a lot of friends in the ward. This week we had a lesson with them and they asked us if they could get us early Christmas gifts because it is likely that we will both be gone by Christmas time. They asked for our shoe sizes so we are excited to see what they get!
We got to go and teach the Leach family again this week also. They are doing amazing, they love the ward and everyone loves them. They are very involved and their testimonies just keep growing – it is amazing! When we went over this week Connor had his future missionary tag that we gave him at his baptism on. Of course we had to take a picture. He will be a stellar missionary in another 10 years. He already knows so much and he will just continue to learn!
We also got to teach a young man named Tommy. His father and step mother are members but his mother is not. He is a bright kid and we believe that he will eventually get baptized; there just might be pressure from one side of the family to not join. He is also 15 so he would need permission from both parents. He is golden. He asks the best questions and definitely wants to understand. He actively participates in seminary (which has to be early morning here) and all of his church classes. He went on trek this summer and apparently gave a very powerful testimony on one of the last days.
That makes me laugh that the boys are still fighting over the same things. I think when I come home I might have to split time between going shooting with you and staying home and hanging out with mom! Conference was amazing! We watched it at the church and it was freezing so we took blankets to the rest of the sessions.
We went and had our lesson with Carl and his wife, they are now on date for baptism! The date in November 5. They are great people and we are super excited!
