I can't say I have too many experiences to share this week but I think this has been one of the best weeks of the mission. We tried really hard to do everything right. We looked at Preach My Gospel many times because we realized a lot of what we did was cultural or habit and not really the best way to do things. It's been helpful.
On Saturday Barry was baptized into the fold of God. I don't know if you remember him but I taught him in Oxford. He was so great and he really digested each step of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He had lots of Faith so that was easy and he had lots to Repent of, but that's why we have the atonement and now he's been baptized and has been confirmed a member of the church. I have complete faith that he will successfully endure to the end as well. I was planning on going and I had permission to go but on the day of his baptism I received a distinct impression not to go. It was odd but I was reassured that if I went I would regret it. I tried to work really hard that day to find the miracle God had instore for me but I don't know if that's why he had me stay. We had an awesome day and that's when we found the family but I never felt a confirmation that some event that occurred on Saturday was the reason I didn't go to the baptism. I don't know why I stayed except the Spirit told me to and I pray I'll be able to recognize why someday.
I'll send pictures of the baptism next week
Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes and/or stuff. I really do appreciate it.
