First Baptism

Missionary work this week was super crazy.  We found so many new investigators and I baptized Anthony on February 1st.  This was my first baptism.   He was supposed to call us early Saturday morning, but we never heard from him until 4 p.m.  We got kind of nervous because the baptism was at 6 p.m.  We had problems with the font so I ended up baptizing him in like a foot of water and he almost hit his head on the bottom.  Anthony bore his testimony after he was baptized and said he knew the church was true and this is ONE for the Lord and ZERO for Satan.  He has such a powerful testimony.  The bishop and I just sat there amazed, it was such a spiritual experience.  After the baptism the font wouldn't drain so we had to get buckets and pour the water down a different drain.  It took us forever.

We also met another lady on the street and she argued with us about the Book of Mormon.  We told her to read the book and we'd be back later in the week to talk to her about it. I'm just praying that she read it and is waiting for us to come back.

I hope everyone is doing well.  I love and miss you all.
