Baptism Interview

 It’s been quite the week this week with lots of new experiences. We were able to get 3 new investigators which was great so hopefully we can get some more lessons this week.
The strangest thing this week was I had to do a baptismal interview for an investigator of the Sisters that is being baptized on Sunday. I found it pretty strange he is here I am sitting down with a man older than my parents to talk with him and see if he is ready to be baptized.
It was different but I think it went really well and he is ready to make the commitment this Sunday,  which we are excited for.
Another funny thing was last night we were talking to this man from India and he is a sequ (they wear the turban) we were telling him all about Jesus Christ and how it’s only through him that we can go back to live with God. He stops me mid sentence and asks me if I am married? No I replied. He then looks me in the eye with all his might and says "your wife will be very rich" haha I had to try and not start laughing. I asked him how he reckoned that one, he replied....I just saw your palms and I know that your wife will be very rich haha.  I told him I was cool with that and we moved back to Jesus Christ he was a crack up.
Elder Henderson and I get along really well, and everything is going good. Thanks for all that you all do and all the prayers and help I get from ya all

Mini mission with the priest this week.

I am well and good I don’t have much time at the moment cause we are running all over the place getting ready for some big event coming up next weekend. We take priests out with us for a couple of days on a mini mission or something like that I don’t even know what it is....maybe we will take them door knocking alllllll dayyyyy!! Or maybe not that’s mean haha.  We only have a few people here that we are teaching so we are saving them all for the weekend with the mini missionaries.
 Elder Henderson and I will be experts at the door after the next few days. We meet some great people and they all give us water because its so hot out. That’s probably why they don’t let us in cause its so hot they think me must be crazy to be walking around knocking doors in that heat. We are finding a lot of people that we hope to teach soon! Things are well and Elder Henderson really knows his stuff so it works good.  I walk up and shoot the breeze with people and then he smashes them with far so good eh?
 Love you all and thanks for all you do!!!!
