Guess what?

Ashley got baptized on Saturday!!!!! It was SO awesome! And super Spiritual! I can’t even explain how I felt, it was an amazing feeling. She is so awesome, and a super star I’m telling ya. She is about to have her baby last Sunday and she asked everyone on her own if they would do their specific parts at her baptism. We didn't have to do anything really, just set up the room and fill the font. Brother Blaser (Ward mission leader) made the programs. She had the baby on Monday. We talked to her on Wednesday. She said "No matter what. I'm getting baptized on the 7th!" And I was like "Your Awesome!"  Ashley also told us that while she was in the hospital. She didn’t really want to watch TV, so she picked up her phone (that's an Android) and started reading the scriptures that was on it until her phone died.  She is my Hero. Some fully active members don't even do that. I was really impressed with her. Come Saturday 30 people showed up at the baptism. It was a great turn out. The talks were wonderful. The musical number was called Perfect Love, which talked about Christ and his Love for us. By then everyone was crying. Ashley was baptized by her brother-in-law, Zach that got his mission call to Mexico, Mexico City.  The glass in front of the Font was all fogged up. Elder McAdoo and I got the opportunity to be the witnesses. It was great. On Sunday Ashley was confirmed and given the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Elder McAdoo and I were able to be apart of that wonderful experience also.  Again, I can’t put into words how I felt but it was awesome! I know I say that a lot but it really is true. =)

I got to talk to my family on Mothers Day!!!!!! I got to see how everyone is doing. Take care of some medical business. Craig and Julia are married!!!! What!!! That's crazy! I never would have guessed! Man! I need to know these things. That is big news. Tell them Congrats. 

I love being out here. Being on a mission is the best. No doubt about it. You help people. You teach people. You help people understand better. You get to be with awesome companions. I really hope I don't get a crazy one. But I will try to work through that too. You come closer to your Heavenly Father and Christ. I love it.

I miss you all and I love you.
