yesterday, we had the baptism of a 10 yr old boy, D'Angelo Phillips. His family has been inactive for a long time, they were a "DO NOT CONTACT" as of february but they are active again and the dad baptized his son! it was so special to see. i will try to get the picture from the dads phone and send it next week.
we had a crazy rain storm come through yesterday after church. we were visiting with Nate and we were outside and the skies were covered in white clouds. we go inside to read the BoM and then we hear a big boom and thunder rolling. we go outside and it is just a flash flood pretty much. so much rain. it was amazing.
anyways, a really amazing experience this week. it was and we were supposed to have District Meeting but it got changed to . as we were sitting at the house, we got a call from a number we didnt recognize. we answered it and it was a lady that is visiting her friends family down here and was at church . they family is really less active. she is needed a priesthood blessing badly. so we told her to meet us at the churchhouse. we told elder blau about it and him and his wife got in their car and met us at the church. we talked with her for a bit to get to know her a little more. she is from alpine utah and has a mission call waiting for her! the family she is staying with, she just cant feel the spirit in the house and it is weighing her down. it was a good talk before and then we asked her who she would like to give the blessing. she said as she pointed to me, "I feel like you should do it." i was like, okay. it was very humbling to have that spirit in the room. we asked her full name.. and then it kindof set in. the spirit really knows what he is doing. her last name is Lamoureaux. UH! thats in our family tree. so somehow, somewhere we are related. it was really amazing. the scripture in d&c where it talks about the body shaking because it is full of the spirit.. yeah it came to life in me. it was amazing.. i dont even know how to describe it. i know that, that blessing and her calling on me was inspired and it strengthened both of us. it was so humbling.
other than all that, this week has been a normal week in the mission field. i am excited for this week!! on a Military Base.. HOORAH! no clue what we are going to do yet though. we will see.
me and elder meiling got our hair cut this morning by elder blau. i was tired of the whiteman fro and trying to get it to stay so i told him to really just cut it short. but not too short. it feels good to have short hair. i cant remember a time when i had it somewhat short. haha
i love you all!
