January 21, 2015. Great Baptism

So this weeks been pretty good! 
We started teaching a returning less active! He just decided he wanted to come back to church, so he is but he is totally awesome! It's amazing how the spirit changes people! Saturday we had Johns baptism and it was super awesome! He's a amazing guy! It's amazing how he has made learning the gospel a priority and how he has been blessed with a testimony because of it! He is awesome! He works on Wall Street! Which is cool! His testimony has grown so much! It's awesome to see him from day one, to today! It's amazing how the gospel brings so much joy to people's lives! It's awesome to see him so excited about the gospel! It was a great baptism! He also had magnolias banana pudding which is a New York classic! It's so good! 
Anyways Sunday we also  had some talks about faith and hope! They were stellar. I took a Ton of notes! It was awesome! Monday I stared getting sick which really stinks, but whateves. I conducted district meeting and I decided to do a big role play as our district and I had each companionship pick an investigator or someone they are working with who they haven't been able to get to come to church. And they pretended to be that person and the rest of the district taught them a lesson with the goal to commit them to come to church! It was awesome to see all the different styles come together and everybody said they learned some stuff they can try. So hopefully it will help! 
Yesterday was pretty good, we had probably the best lesson of the week. We were wondering which member to invite and we kept having this one member come to mind! So we texted her and she could come, we met with her and Penelope our investigator, we have had difficult lessons with her in the past. But she really opened up this lesson and it was awesome! She had so many issues with the church which we found the root of, and then once she figured it out she is super open to learn now! Having that member there totally made the difference though which is awesome! 
Last p day I got to go to the natural history museum which was totally awesome! It's huge and amazing! Now today we get to go to the temple which is awesome too! Me and elder Cloward are having a great time! It's awesome! The work is going well and it's fun! Have a great week!
