On Saturday Rebecca Carr was baptized and became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Elder Grow returned from his new area to perform the baptism. It was an amazing service. She had a lot of support from her family and the ward. In the photo on the left is Rebecca's parents and sister, and on the right is her fiance Robert and his parents. They just announced their engagement last week for October! Rebecca's story is that she come to church with various friends in the YSA ward until she met Robert and began dating him. She has sorta "flown under the radar" until a month ago when she came to sacrament meeting and we met her. She said that she was really interested in learning about the church and wanted to be baptized! As we have taught Rebecca it has really struck me how much charity she has. She never judges and always sees people with the love of Christ. She will be a great strength to this ward.
So, my new companion. I love Elder Stone!!! He is amazing. He is just what this area needs. He will be going home this transfer, so I'm probably going to stay here for another one after that. Elder Stone is from Weezer, Idaho, but lived in Arizona before his mission. He's got two older brothers and a twin brother. He is SO much like my best buddy Jed Hazlett. We're like Alma and Amulek! This will be the greatest transfer of my mission!
Love you all.
