Weekly Update 11/9/15   

It was kind of a slow week.  Not much happened.

The highlight was definitely that Bill was baptized on Saturday!

The Primary Program was on Sunday and they had a practice Saturday morning so the President asked us to pick up a bunch of pizzas from Little Ceasar's on our way to fill up the font.  We got to be the pizza delivery ladies and had lunch with all the cute Primary kids!

Then it was time for the baptism and Bill and everyone showed up!  And his Fiance from Canada that we've been waiting forever to meet came too and it was so good!  Bill could hardly wait for the program to start.  Since he has serious back problems, instead of going backward into the water, after Bro Rollo said the prayer, Bill went to his knees and then forward.  I'd never seen someone do that before, but it worked our nicely...and for the rest of the day he was glowing.  Happiness was radiating from him.  He is so excited to baptize Trish, his fiance one day, and them be sealed in the temple.  Now we just need to get her to meet with the missionaries in Canada.

Sunday was a big day too.  We met Bill out in the parking lot and he was still glowing.  Then he was confirmed and received the Gift of the Holy Ghost!  After the men stepped away after the prayer, Bill was crying. It was so sweet and the spirit was so strong!  And he took the Sacrament and renewed his covenants he'd just made.  Then a new Bishop was called.  We haven't had one for 2 weeks since our last one moved away.  So that was good to have one again.  And the Primary Program was So Sweet!

Lemme tell ya, being a missionary is the Very Best!
