This week.... was wonderful :) Malia was baptized!! It was a super spiritual baptism and she was basically in tears the whole time. You could tell it meant a lot to her. She is only 12 years old. Both her parents attended the baptism and the confirmation the next day in sacrament meeting. Neither of them have come for many years. Now, you are probably also wondering why there are three of us in that picture. I will tell you. We are now a trio companionship. Elder Baclawski has been in our district ever since I have been here. He has served in the stake west of ours for about 6 months now. There were a few emergency transfers this last wednesday and his companion got transferred to another area and there was no one to take his place. So he is with us and we are covering both stakes. As if 7 wards wasn't enough haha. Its good though, being a district leader it gives me a better opportunity to work with him more than a few times here and there. I get to be with him all day everyday now and see how he works. So that's really the big change this week. It should only be this way until the end of the transfer. When I was first on my mission I lived with another set of Elders so this brings back a few memories :) Its a little more crammed in our apartment though and we don't have as long in the morning to get ready since we have to share the bathroom with three now instead of two. So Malia got baptized and Hernalen right now is still on for the 18th of November. She is our only other investigator really right now, but we will be finding more this week. So that's what's going on. Things are going well and I am happy :) Hope you all have a great week and know that you are loved.
