Miracles Happen

Dear Family,

It was good to hear from y'all again. 
First off I have some good news  ….our ‘miracle’ investigator Johnny did in fact get baptized on Saturday and it turned out to be a great baptismal service.  We probably had more than 50 people attending and our mission President and his wife got to come as well.

But getting to Saturday's baptism was quite a journey  ….here is the whole story.  Most of the week, we were not sure if he was going to be able to move out and resolve his roommate situation which would not have allowed him to be baptized.  On Wednesday Johnny came to the Institute and we invited to his lesson one of the Young Single Adults (YSA) who were present in the building.  After the lesson Johnny was updating us on his housing situation and told us that he still had not found a place to move.  The YSA who was with us spoke up and said he knew of some great inexpensive apartments.   Johnny got the apartment, but was told that he would not be able to move in until Monday.   Because he did not wanted to postpone the baptism one week he asked if he could stay with a member of the Ward for that weekend.  
Well it worked out that he did and because of Johnny's faith and prayers of many, including yours, the miracle took place and Johnny was baptized.   He can also claim that he was baptized by Joseph Smith because he asked to be baptized by a member of the Ward by that name, haha:)

I love y'all and hope y'all have a great week!!!!!!!!! Miracles Happen!!!
