Baptism of Sister W....

Hello Family and Friends,

I want to thank you all for all the letters, cards, and love that you have all given me. I have felt all your prayers and I pray for you as well. You all should send me more pictures and hand written letters when you can.  It really makes my day.

The baptism of Kate W.... was so spiritual. We had over 60 people attend.  It is the first baptism in the area for over a year and half.  I was able to see a Elder that trained in the MTC with me, and we were able to present a lesson during the baptism together.  It was an assume experience.  I am so blessed to have a baptism under my belt so early on my mission. We have another investigator on date for the 12. I know he knows that baptism is necessary and he is almost ready. I can feel that he is ready for the Gospel and the Holy Ghost.

Christmas was assume also. We spent time with some ward families that treated us so great. We wer so busy that day that I did not get much time to open my gifts and enjoy the things my family sent me.  I talked with my family for about 40 minutes.  It was great to hear you all. 
This past week wasn't very successful. Probably one of my worst. But it will be ok. I will be able to bring it up when I get a new companion soon. Transfers is this Thursday. I don't know if I'll be transferred or not. I better not because this area is doing really good.

Once again before I close, please write me more letters or send me some pictures. I've been feeling down lately and these letters would really help me.
