So this week has been for the most part a pretty regular old week. Hitting the streets, talking to everyone we see, teaching people, and doing service. Pretty great life if I do say so myself!This week, we had a baptism! Glen was baptized on Saturday and it was such a neat experience. The rest of his family is members and have been trying to get him interested in the church for many years so it was so fantastic to see it finally happen! I watched his two kids faces when he came out of the water and they were just beaming from ear to ear, it was so amazing. You could see the happiness roll off of them that their dad had decided to join them as a family in the gospel. The (second) best part was the after party. His parents (well, whole family) is Philippine and when something happens, there is food, because food makes people happy. They invited the whole ward over for a dinner at their house afterward and there was SO MUCH FOOD! I made the mistake of sitting by his mom and she made me eat 3 plates full. Not that I am complaining because it was some of the best food I have ever eaten; homemade spring rolls have now rocketed up to my top favorite foods. Then she sent us home with more food than we can eat in a week. Good thing we are on bikes or you would have to roll me home! It was fun to see everyone together and the built in family that come with joining the church and the support of the members for Glen and his decision. That makes all the difference to someone coming in!
Thank goodness for kindhearted people! ;)
