November 23, 2016 C--- Got Baptized!

We had a great week this week. We had a baptism on Sunday! He's an 8 year old boy that gets brought to church by his aunt. We thought he was a member until he came up to us at a baptism some other missionaries were having and said "I want to get baptized." The rest is history. His mom was able to come and she brought a bunch of friends, we're working on her still. 

We started zone conferences this week. Which means that we're super busy as usual. The training that Elder Mackintosh & I are giving this time around is on the new Christmas initiative. Get excited it's going to be awesome. 

We had some amazing experiences this week. About a month ago we received a referral from some sisters that we're giving art tours down at the Lincoln Center Chapel (Aka the chapel Side of the temple). They had given a tour to this man that lives in our area. We contacted him and he asked us if we could call him back in a few weeks. Fast forward to last week. We contact him again and he is one of the most prepared people I have ever met in my life. It's awesome to see that the Lord is preparing people all the time to receive the Gospel. We are going to try to commit him to be baptized on a specific date this Friday. We are also have another investigator that we think could get baptized by the end of December. High hopes for our area. 

In other news, it's starting to get cold here which is making me really happy. I still really like the cold... my companion thinks I'm weird. I hope you have a great week!

Con Amor,
Elder Sam McBride
