The baptism this last Saturday was amazing! This family moved into the ward in August, but started attending church in July in their old ward. So we were not the ones to actually find them, but we were the ones that taught them all the lessons. The dad is the one who baptized his two daughters. He has been inactive since he was a teenager, but came back into activity. The oldest daughter is 13 and the younger one is 8. He also has a son that is 5. That's a little about them. To make this week even better, we got a new investigator yesterday. A member in one of our wards has invited her to church and she has come for the past couple weeks. Yesterday we stopped by and were able to teach her and set up another appointment next Sunday. She loves coming to church and the feeling she has when she is there.
We found out this week that we should have ipads by the end of the year and we will be doing missionary work online soon. There is a lot of exciting things coming soon. We also found out that they want us to be more creative with our finding ideas. We tried to come up with ideas as a district, but it is kind of hard to think of new ideas when your area is so small.
The past two days have been really nice in Arizona. I think it might be cooling down soon. It is so strange when 90 degrees is cool. When I walked out on our balcony this morning I was surprised and had to stop. When I walked outside I didn't walk into a wall of heat. It felt so nice.
For my birthday I can't think of anything I need, but I could always use another tie. I can't think of anything specific right now. This is the last week of the transfer, so next week I'll let you know if anything is changing.
Thanks for all your prayers! I love you all so much!
