Ah what a good week!!! John got baptized!!! Wooo hoo!! Ah it was just the best weekend ever. There were so many people that showed up for the baptism. Everytime I asked him how he was feeling he would just say, "ready." Which he totally was. Probs just baptized a future bishop, God has so much in store for that guy. A lot of his family was there; his brother in law flew in to baptize him. His mother and father in law gave the talks and his wife said the prayer. We asked him if he wanted to bear his testimony after he was baptized. So he got up there and he talked about how everything has come back to the feeling that he gets. Something that you can't describe, but it's this feeling. He got really emotional in the middle and you just knew that he understood what he had just done. After that we sang I am a Child of God and the spirit was just so strong. I have never been so excited for someone to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. But I knew if anybody would appreciate the feeling and blessing that comes from receiving that gift, John would. And you could tell he did after he stood up from the chair and was sustained a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is what it's all about is bringing families together, and I just can't wait til him and his wife and 3 little kiddies are sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. Ahh! Love the gospel!
On another subject, I got my new compy. Sister Hill! She's from AF Utah and was my STL in my last zone. We had always said we wanted to be comps someday, look at that. God is kind :)
We're looking on to big and greater things. Real excited for things the Lord has in store!! I hope you all have a good week and remember to not take for granted the blessings of the gospel. It's the greatest gift we've ever been given. How lucky we are to live in the dispensation of the fullness of times. Love you all! Happy week!
Sister Johanswaggin (nicknamed by the notorious Sister Bird may she RIP) ;)
