Hunter Week 5: Easter Baptism


Happy Easter Y'all! It's been a great past Easter week here in Utah! Although Utah doesn't really celebrate Good Friday and all that, it was ballin! We had a Easter baptism this weekend! We had a baptism for Zadien who is 10 and his little sister who is 8! It was so ballin! We had their home teacher who was very close with the family baptize them and me and Elder Muse did some great witnessing for the baptism. It was a lot of fun to help that family out. It's a single mom family, and it was great to help them out and help the come to church! The dad and grandparents came to the baptism, and we talked to one of the mom’s sisters who is less active. We talked about helping her kids get baptized as well! So we will see how that goes! Also, after the baptism we were driving and we saw a ton of old Ford and Chevy trucks and convertibles in this guy front  yard. He let us mess around with them, and we took some ballin pictures. haha! So it was a great reward after the baptism. haha!

We also had the mission tour this week with President Christensen coming from the Seventy! It was so awesome! He talked to us about the Holy Ghost and how we can receive revelation for ourselves and our areas! It was a huge spiritual experience! Elder Muse actually got chosen to be interviewed by him. So that was a great experience for him, I'm sure! We got to ask him questions about concerns we have and everything. So it was ballin! We also got to hear from President Palmer as well which is always great! I learned a lot from them, and it was a great opportunity to listen to them both!

Other than that, this week has been normal regarding missionary work! We did get to meet with Jose’s family. He's the one that went to General Conference with us, and we have been trying to get them to church. They haven't been coming since conference. We are working with some of the kids to get them baptized, and we have been helping Jose get the priesthood. Then he could baptize his own kids which would be awesome! So hopefully we get the ball rolling there. But ya, it's been great here in the valley! Thank y'all so much for everything that y'all have done for me! I appreciate all the letters and emails! I hope all of y'all had a great Easter and a Christ centered week! It's been great, and I have loved every second of my week! Hard to believe it's been 10 months already! But it's ballin! Love y'all!
