Blessed with a baptism

Dear Family,

I am glad to hear that although y'alls Thanksgiving was short few of your favorite children, that you still had a good one.  And it is always good to enjoy the holidays and doing it serving someone else like y'all did.

On Saturday, we were blessed with a baptism of our investigator Charles. He had a wonderful experience and said that he had felt the spirit really strongly after the baptismal ordinance was performed.   Elder Chapman was able to perform his first baptism and so it was a special experience for him as well. Looking back almost 3 months ago when we first met him, Charles has come a long way, especially when like a month ago we almost put him on pause and thought he might have dropped us.   The experience of teaching him all the way through and seeing him change is a testimony builder that the gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone and can bless anyone’s and everyone’s life.

Thanksgiving was a joy for us as well.   Elder Chapman and I participated in a turkey bowl in the morning, and then we had lots to eat and had some awesome deserts  … and let me tell you there is no better tasting turkey in the world then deep fried turkey.

Things are still going well in the area. We have two other baptismal dates and we could potentially have two baptisms in December, which would make it a very Merry, Merry Christmas.

Have a great week and I appreciate your prayers and encouragement. Enjoy the pictures.

Love,
Elder Wawro
