Week 23 - Inman/Boiling Springs, SC - 12/16/13

Spoiler alert: It's a White December here in Boiling Springs!

Greetings family! This week has been kind of a crazy week. Unfortunately, not a whole lot of eventful stuff happened because Sister Gardner and I decided that this week would be a good week to get sick. That was a joke. It is never a good week to be sick especially as a missionary. But get this! Even with us being sick, we still taught a lesson every day! *High five* We just didn't get to go out tracting or anything.

Some cool stuff that happened this week though: Sister Gardner and I did our first FHE and it was on what happened in the Americas and in Jerusalem when Christ was born. All inspired by (my brother) Aaron's FHE that he gave last Christmas! It went pretty well if I may say so myself! We also had some great service opportunities by helping out ward members in their homes and setting up for the Relief Society dinner on Thursday. That was actually super awesome because we usually can't get any service anywhere! I also got two packages this week - one from the Crescent Park 6th Young Women and one from the Crescent Park 6th Relief Society! It was basically the best! Especially since the Young Women gave me a tree. Yup. Our house is decorated now! It actually feels like Christmas! Woo hoo!

Anyway, on to the big news! Yes. The Boiling Springs ward had not one, not two, not three, but four baptisms on Saturday! The Elders had one and we had three! It was the best feeling ever! It was also super chaotic because this was mine and Sister Gardner's first baptismal service so we were kind of running around like a chicken with its head cut off. But it happened! And K, S and P are some happy kids! We're super excited for them to continue on this path back to our Heavenly Father!

I love y'all! Have a blessed week!
