Baptisms



The district had five more baptisms this month and we are working with several people who are coming very close. We have met a wonderful couple, Mark and Karen, and are teaching Mark. Karen joined the church when she was sixteen. We feel as though we have known them so much longer than we have. They are the age of our own children, feel like family and are a constant source of inspiration and happiness. Please keep them in your prayers. Our goal is to meet in Hawaii, on our way home in May of 2009, and go to the temple with them.
We are also teaching several other people; a great little family from Kenya, a 14 year old boy whose mother joined the church last year, a young mother, and a Sudanese woman who has been through some very difficult things in her life.

Mom couldn't send it so she dictated to me. That might be how her messages come through from now on.

Love ya,
