We had another great week in the Clayton Ward! Things are going well. :)
We had interviews this week with President Baker. It was weird, though, because it was my last interview before my exit interview!!! Also, this was the Baker's last round of interviews before they go home, too!
Miracle of the week: Emma got baptized! When I was in the Smithfield Ward I taught her for almost a transfer. She is this cute little ten year old that knows the gospel way better than I did when I was ten! She had a problem getting baptized though because she didn't know any men that she trusted enough to baptize her. It took a lot of work, but she was finally baptized! It was such a beautiful baptismal service, too. The spirit was so strong. I could just feel how happy Heavenly Father was, and I could hear it too through the blessing she was given when she was confirmed. I was so grateful that I was able to have a part in her coming to Christ through baptism. At times in my mission I have been so discouraged because I haven't had lots of "baptisms". That whole counting your baptisms thing has always bothered me anyway, but I really realized this weekend that the number of my investigators that I have seen baptized doesn't matter at all. Emma didn't count as "my baptism", but I am just so happy that another precious daughter of God took an enormous step towards Him, and I'm happy that I was able to play a part in that! I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to be a missionary. I have never felt so much joy in my life. I know that the joy I feel is only a tiny little piece of the joy Heavenly Father feels when his children come to Him. I'm just so grateful that He lets me have a part in that!
I hope you all have a beautifully blessed week!
