my life right now...

Pip pip Cheerio!
Hello everyone! This week was really good but not so really good at the same time. The really good parts is that we went to the temple in Kansas City on Tuesday, a zone training on wednesday, and on Saturday we had a baptism which is a funny story that i'll get too. But that resulted in not a whole lot of proselyting time available, so no new stuff really and the work wasn't the best. But this week is the last week of the transfer, so we're just going to kill it this week! This transfer went by super fast by the way! But anyways! Baptism Story! So, it's the day of Raymonds baptism! Me, Elder Stum, our Ward Mission Leader Brother Groth, and Raymond are all dressed in white and the baptismal service has begun. We struggled to help him down the steps and into the baptismal font. When he was finally in the font we were relieved, but we had no idea what kind of struggles lied ahead. Attempt number one was very unsuccessful. As we tipped him down into the water, for some reason he inhaled and kept his eyes wide open. He started to panic. The look on his face was the essence of fear. So naturally, the moment we heard gargling we brought him back up. That's when we knew we couldn't do this alone. I summoned another Elder, whom is our district leader and is known by the name Elder Ives and the 2nd Counselor in our bishopric whom is known by Brother Ismert. We told them to put some jumpsuits on and hop in! Once the five of us, not including Raymond himself, were in the font we were ready to get this guy baptized. After one more failed attempt, we were more determined then ever! Third times the charm we got this 495 pound man fully submersed! We all smiled from ear to ear and Raymond was now entered into a covenant. Doesn't get better than that folks! But I hope everyone has a great week, and don't forget to find joy in the little things!Love, Elder McGee!
