On Tuesday I had my first baptism! It was a 13-year-old Marshall boy named Launit who is the bomb! He was great during lessons and loves everything about the church. He still has a lot to learn but he catches on quick and is very outgoing. He and my other friend Tevenson both say that they can't wait to turn 18 so they can go on missions.
We are also teaching two young men named Randy, 16 and Alika, 14. They are both very receptive but we need the support of the parents so that they can get to church. It is very difficult to get people to church because the chapel is 25 minutes away in Waimea but we keep trying. They both attended the baptism and really want to go through with it so we are aiming for next month for both of them. Hopefully it happens before the next transfer.
The work is still going great! I'm meeting new people everyday and I'm still lovin' it! Sorry about the short email, not a very eventful week.
Family, I love you all. There is really no new insight this week since it was really kinda a slow. I didn't get any letters all week and found an empty mail box every day so that kinda stunk :(
But it's okay, I love you more than ever. I still can't even tell you how much I brag about all of you, because I have the greatest family in the world! Keep being awesome and spread the word. I know it doesn't work the same in Utah but help the missionaries when you can. If someone is a non-member share everything with them. This gospel is the greatest thing this world has to offer with the greatest teacher - the Spirit! Also I just finished "Our search for happiness" by Elder M. Russell Ballard. It's awesome. I highly recommend it. I'm just starting "Jesus the Christ". I'm 15 pages in and I already love Christ more and His atonement 100 times more. I also highly recommend it but make sure to have a dictionary handy. :)
