We also have another investigator, Joann, who was originally supposed to be baptized on April 27. Joann was also a member referral (I'm telling you guys, members are the best missionaries). But apparently when Joann was watching Conference with her member friend she had some sort of very special experience where she received a very strong spiritual witness that this was the truth. So she called us up in the middle of the week and asked if it would be at all possible for her to be baptized on Sunday, the 13th. Unfortunately there was just no way we could make that happen, she hadn't had her interview or anything like that yet. But we did move up her baptism a week, so she will be getting baptized this Sunday if all goes well.
We invited our investigator Erica to be baptized this week, and she said yes to the date of May 25. Erica is a 16 year old girl from a family who are less active in the Gospel. She is from Cape Verde Africa, and she is a really cool girl and loves meeting with us and learning more about the Gospel. We have baptized most of our investigators, so now we have to reload and get some more baptisms lined up. Not a bad problem to have I guess.
Also, when I very first got to Waterbury we were teaching a man named Danny, and his friend Chris. Danny's entire family are members, and Chris is just a family friend. So we were teaching them both together, all was going great, and they actually had decided they both wanted to get baptized together. But there were some obstacles in their way still. Danny was heading to jail for 5 months, and Chris was heading to a rehab facility to overcome his addiction to heroin. So they both went their separate ways, but now they are both back and ready to pick up where we left off! We just met with Chris again last night for the first time, and we will be seeing Danny later this week. So hopefully we can pick up right where we left off with them, they both seem to be doing really well right now. But yeah, things are going great! Love you all!
Us with our boy Ernesto, the shorter guy, and Brother Lopez who baptized him.
Me and Elena! We are pretty tight, we even have our own secret handshake.
