Hiya Mummy and Daddy,
My goodness this week has gone by so fast! I feel a frantic need to
get all these pictures to you, and I'm rapidly running out of time and
they won't load, so hopefully something will happen, but I just wanted
to tell you quickly about Mark's baptism.....oh....it was so glorious!
His non-member mother, wife and best friend showed up, and throughout
the whole service, Mark and his mother had little streams of happiness
bubbling down their cheeks. BAM! MIRACLE! NEXT! Sister Terry and I
had a very proud moment when our recent convert, Neil Stocken, spoke!
He said wonderful things about Mark, but more importantly he bore such
and incredible testimony! I was blown away.....splattered on the back
wall.....oh wonderful!! Mark was overcome with the spirit as he
entered the water. We waited for a moment so he didn't drown
underwater :D It was AMAZING! Now we just need his wife....it's really
only a matter of time.....which I feel I’m rapidly running out of!
What else? Oh Sister Terry and I met with a lady from Zimbabwe that
paused every so often and rebuked the evil spirits that insist on
following us all day. She proper screamed at the
ceiling.....yeah.....interesting night :D
At family home evening at David Baxter's house, we put on the whole
armor of God and then the devil bombarded us with his fiery darts...I
was quite fierce some, till someone asked me a question and Sister
Terry's impeccable aim beaned me in the eye ball with a fiery dart.....
No worries :D I'm sure I'll regain my sight at some time in the near
future :D and the bruise makes for a lovely conversation piece :D
so...ALL IS WELL. We rang in the New Year with the best of
them....with our little trumpets :D I have a good feeling about 2011.
We all know how I feel about odd numbers! I can't believe I'm nearly
1/3rd of the way done with my mission! A year from now, I'll be
preparing to come home! A year ago I was chugging through all the
mission paperwork! Weird....where does the time go!!!! SO MUCH TO DO
AND SO LITTLE TIME! :D I just want to tell you how much I love you and
how proud I am to call you family! I'm so lucky that you're mine :D
Talk to you soon. let me know if you get the pictures and thank you so
so so much for longies! bless!
Love always and forever your,
