Family, We had a really good week. The S's baptism went well and confirmation on Sunday went according to plan. So it was a really good experience and they even had some of their family there which was really nice. They are really excited and doing great. Now we are going to try and work with the rest of their family. The branch was really excited to see them get baptized and I think it got everyone excited about missionary work again. After the baptism, one of the part-member family's that came to see it, the 18 yr old girl said she wants to be baptized now. So that is pretty sweet. We are going to be working with them (M, spanish family) and also the Ussery family. When I first got here, we baptized the 3 kids. Now the dad wants to be baptized. We just started teaching him and reminding the family about their baptismal covenants. Overall I think it will be good for the family. They are trying to revamp their excitement and activation in the church so this is exactly what they need. Besides the U's and M family wanting to be baptized (both part member families which is always awesome) we are working with a few more spanish people. We are doing good in reactivating the spanish members and they are doing a lot better and wounds are being healed from past drama amongst the spanish families. Besides that we are doing pretty good. The work is picking up in the area and we are teaching a lot of people. Our mission leader is doing sweet and really helping us out in being more organized and everything. The weather has been pretty moderate this week. It actually rained pretty good for a day or 2. This area is longing for more rain. Apparently the crops and farms are really struggling with the little, well no rain we have had this season. Everything else is doing really good. Hope everything is good with you guys. Love, Elder Roe Picture from Schildmeier's baptism.....suh-weet!
