|14 months and a Baptism, What a day!!|
Well the real exciting news for the week: P got baptized! It was great!! I went over yesterday to Espoo and got to watch the baptismal service and I was asked to give a short talk and bear testimony. P's member friend in the ward baptized him and it was a super spiritual experience for them both. It was just so great to see and feel how happy he was after the baptism. He came out of the changing room with his suit on with a huge smile and just full of life and light and it was just awesome. He was so grateful that I was able to come and he was just excited about everything. He got confirmed the next day in church by the bishop and he called me last night to tell me about it. He's doing really well and I'm planning on still seeing him from time to time in Helsinki at family nights at the mission office or somehow. As I was sitting in the baptismal service before the ordinance I just had the overwhelming feeling of it all being worth it and it was a really rewarding experience. I gave my short little talk and testimony on the importance of the Savior and how we can change and become perfected in him as the Book of Mormon says. It was a great experience and everyone there loved it. I'm excited for him to be able to progress as a new member and get his patriarchal blessing and go to the Temple and things like that.
Well it was too bad that I didn't get to be at home with all of you for the sweet halloween celebrations and all that fun stuff but it was a good week. The weather hasn't been too cold here yet. It warmed up this week to above freezing but it's been cloudy and dark and raining for like 4 days so that kind of sucks haha it's getting pretty dark here already. It's setting in way hard. But it's all good at least I'm not up in the north. Well I love you all so much! Thank you for all the love and support each week! Have a great week!
