We have some exciting things going on. We had the coolest lesson on Friday while we were on splits with the South Manhattan zone leaders. We have been teaching a man since September and have never been able to get him to accept a baptismal date but on Friday Elder Mackintosh and I planned a super great lesson for him and his member wife. The lesson started out nothing like how we had planned, but typed back in so well into our plan. Right at the moment we were planning on extending a baptismal date our investigator interjects "January 8th". It was such a cool moment. Nobody spoke. His wife and mother in law started to cry. Then, after what seemed like an eternity, he spoke saying that he had been thinking long and hard about who should do it, looked at his father in law and asked him if he would perform his baptism. By then everyone was emotional. It was such a cool experience. The Elder I was on a split with was so excited. The Gospel is true. Family's can be together through Priesthood sealing.
There's a really cool event happening in our mission on Tuesday. We have a "celebrity" coming to do a Facebook live stream at a couple service projects put on by missionaries in our mission. It's going to be awesome.
For Christmas I will be available to Skype between 2pm and 4pm my time. When would work best from you? I'll call you then.
