What A Week!

Another great week in the books! 

The highlight of the week was definitely the baptismal service on Saturday night. There is nothing better than seeing your investigators turn into members and the look on their face as they leave the water. Our investigator Alex was baptized, and it was probably one of the coolest baptisms I've witnessed yet. This whole week leading up to the batpism he was so excited and giddy. He caught malaria last week so he was worried that he wouldn't be able to be baptized, but he asked for a blessing and he was just fine. The faith of this man is incredible. This week he is going to South Africa on business and is so excited to go to the temple. Unfortunately he can't go in and do baptisms cause there won't be time for him to get the Aaronic Priesthood before he leaves, but regardless he is exstatic. 

The rest of our week was great and full of teaching, over the last transfer we have really refined our investigator pool and as for right now we have a pretty solid set investigators. Over this next month we should see a few more baptisms. 

The comp and I are doing really great together, the work is so much easier when you have synergy in the companionship. He is a really good guy and teaching me a lot. 

This weekend the four of us are going up to another Province called Huambo to meet with the other 4 missionaries up there because President Kretly is coming for the last time before we become our own mission. Huambo is also becoming a branch which is super cool! They've just been a group for a little over a year now. It should be a good time. 

I hope you all have a great week! Thank you for all of the prayers and support!
