We Moved!

This week we moved! We used to live in the basement of a really kind elderly couple. It was a really nice place, but we didn't have a kitchen. We turned one of the bathroom sink areas into our little kitchen. It was fun, but time to move on

Our new apartment is really cold, but there is a real life-size fridge! 

On Saturday Holly got baptized. At her baptism, she had many many friends show up, and to my surprise many of her friends were also my friends! It warmed my heart to know that there is so much missionary work to do in Provo, and the people I love are a part of that.

Holly was so excited, and it was so heartwarming to see her being able to make that step with the help of so many great friends. If there's one thing I've learned from my mission, it is that as a missionary, I do nothing. It's up to the missionary efforts of every single person in the church, and we are missionaries are just there to help with the actual ordinance of baptism. Everything that comes before and after is just as important. 

In 2 Ne 31, it says, "if the Lamb of God, he being holy should have need to be baptized by water, to fulfil all righteousness, O then, how much more need have we, being unholy, to be baptized, yea, even by water!" 

Christ gave us an instruction manual of the way to return to live with God again; and I know that by following those instructions of having faith, repenting, being baptized, and receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end, we can be perfectly happy. The problems of life won't go away, but we can face them with the confidence and peace that Christ had in His life.
