Hey cute family!
God is good and the Plan is true.
We had the loveliest baptism that has ever taken place ever on Saturday. Marié is literally one of my favorite people and was the best to teach. This week we had a hard time because we had this lesson with her that really sucked. She had a really hard time believing in modern prophets and it just ended full of unstable feelings and it killed me. So I hardly slept that night because I was just w o r r i e d but then we got messages from her in the morning that were like "hey guys I'm ready for my baptism. I got my answer!" So that was really nice. And her baptism was one of the most spiritual experiences that I've had the honor of witnessing. She was really nervous and she was really emotional but she literally asked Hno Cuc if she could stay in the baptismal water because she felt the spirit so strongly. And literally no joke she came out of the water and said "guys we knew each other. Before this life we knew each other." And then she was bearing her testimony and was like "guys this church is true and God is real. He was with me in the water and he is with me now. I have never been more sure of anything." And she was confirmed on Sunday and is going to the temple this Saturday. It was so fun to teach her. She's a good friend.
Want to know my new hobby? Listening to talks! Like not just General Conference talks but like John Bytheway and Hyrum Smith and Brad Wilcox and Hugh Nibley. I'll send a few for you to listen to. I love John Bytheway. Idk. New little thing I like to do. I have them all on my iPad. #blessed.
But basically I just want you to know that I'm a happy guy and I love you so much. I'm going to send you more of an email later but right now I have to go change my laundry and then go buy food. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. And God is so good. I thank Him every day for giving me you.
