Baptism Dates

            Well we had a good week. A highlight of my week was we scheduled an appointment with a guy named Cameron, pretty young guy. When it was time for the appointment we were parked outside his house talking about what we were going to say in the appointment and we saw him come walking down the street. So we got out to say hi, and I don’t know what happened but he screamed and just started running away faster than I have ever seen anybody run before. ...  We never saw Cameron again. When we got back into the car I couldn’t help but laugh.
            Our Chinese friends are all doing well – Emma, Neil, Bob, and Penny. All of them except Penny have a baptismal date for November. Emma is getting baptized this week and everything is looking great for her. She is all ready to go and she is so excited!!! She is a star. We had a good lesson with her and Neil. We were teaching them at the University with a couple of YSA – Alice and Meg. Then one of the workers for the Uni came up and asked who we were and then was rather rude and told us to get out. I was really embarrassed because I didn’t know what Emma and Neil would think but then I looked at Neil and we was starring daggers at this lady. He looked ready to kill her hahaha. Everything was OK though. We just left and went to a little cafe.
            We are seeing Emma, Neil, Bob and Penny tonight at some member’s house for some food and then we are going to watch Finding Faith in Christ. It’s going to be a good time.
            Yesterday was Stake Conference. Elder Charles and Elder Dyches from the Seventy came and spoke. Afterwards Elder Doudou and I were speaking with Elder Charles and we asked him to come teach with us. He was stoked and said for sure but then he had to cancel later on that day. But President Jordan was there as well so he came teaching with us.  We taught all of the Chinese together ... which never happens. It was a crowded room with us, all of them, and President Jordan.
            Well the Church is true! I have felt the love of God so much this week through the Holy Ghost. What a blessing it is to have the Holy Ghost as a gift ... a member of the Godhead ... crazy.
