Hey y’all, what’s going on?
The reason for the title is a fun time we had this last Sunday at church. After sacrament meeting we were on our way to go to Gospel Principles, when we find out that there was no one to teach it today, since our ward mission leader didn’t come that day and he didn’t assign a sub. So my comp and I BS’ed our way through a lesson there and it went pretty good. Then we went on to Elders quorum where we had Brother Baker as the teacher for the day. He goes up to teach and the whole time he was up there he was asking the class about things and scriptures he should give to his friend to tell them about the church. Then after about 20 minutes of this he writes all the answers down, packs up his stuff and says, "Well I don’t want to take all of the Elders time, I’m sure they have something they have prepared to share with us so I’ll let them take this." Then we had another impromptu lesson. Ha ha if there is one skill I will develop on my mission it will be the ability to pull a gospel lesson out of my butt on the fly.
Ha ha, so this week was over all a pretty good week, we had a couple people that we got to visit and help answer their questions about the scriptures and other gospel related things. We got to have the classic asking of how many wives we have; to which we responded none, and how we will only have one.
This weekend though we get to have a re-baptism of a member named Nicole that just recently started coming to church. Apparently during hurricane Katrina her records for baptism were lost and so we have to re-baptize her to get that record back in the church's books. It is super exciting though and she is very happy and will to do it. It actually has been a big blessing for her family that this happened because it has given her brother Fernando the opportunity and jump start he needed to change his life a bit, and start coming back to church, so that he could baptize her. This weekend between conferences he will be baptizing his sister back into the church.
Love y’all and hope you have a fantastic week!
