Mission Tour and a baptism...

Well Rachel B was baptized this Saturday. It was a really cool experience. She was baptized and confirmed by the husband of the family she lives with. She got up at the end and bore her testimony. It was really powerful! She didn't say much, but she said she knew that Heavenly Father loved her. The Spirit was really strong. There were a lot of people there to support her as well, it was great. This week was the mission tour as well. Elder Clarke came and spoke to us and helped us all realize how much we need to do better haha. He is a very energetic man that keeps us all paying attention. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. We were also able to go and teach a boy and his mother that Elder Williams and I had taught once before but they were going out of town for a month. So we stopped by one night and they were home! We taught them and the boy said he would get baptized if he knew it was true. Bingo :) He didn't come to church though and we haven't been able to get a hold of him since, so hopefully we can talk to him again soon. Elder Laughlin hasn't been feeling well the past day or two, so I've been out working with some of the people in the stake. He's doing a little better today, but still doesn't feel the best. Things are going well though and there is a lot of work to do. I am excited to keep finding people to teach :) Miracles are real. Have a great week everyone! Love you all

An excerpt from his Mom letter:

I can't believe school is already starting again. It doesn't seem real. It doesn't seem real that transfers are next week either. That came out of nowhere. I feel like I just came to Kearns a week ago. I'm excited to fall weather/colors. Wish I could take pictures though. Not excited for snow, especially being so close to the mountains. I like mountains better without snow, they seem more adventurous. Whereas with snow on them they seem more majestic. Either way, not excited for snow. That's cool that you got to go to the Ogden open house! I wish we could go. Sounds like a fun ward party too. We have a stake fair coming up where there will be a lot of things going on. This one will include a car show because.. well people have enough money up here for that kind of stuff. Anyways things are going well. Love you!
