Hey, we had a great week! Laurel was baptized and everything was great. After her baptism, like a good companion, I was waiting for Wood to change outside the bathroom when I was suddenly blindsided! Laurel ran up and hugged me by surprise. It was totally unexpected and I felt so awkward. She wouldn’t let go until I gave her a little pat on the back. She’s such a goof!
In other news, Sean says he is ready to be baptized. He has a solid testimony and is just awesome but he has to come to church one more time and getting work off is really hard for him. The past two weeks he worked double shifts on Saturday to free up Sunday but he still got called in to work. He will probably get baptized this month for sure so it’s no problem. He has progressed so well; it’s just amazing.
We can Skype on Mother’s Day at about 6:00 p.m. your time on Sunday (which is 9:00 a.m. on my Monday). Here is my schedule for the week: Monday – Skype the family; Tuesday – full work day; Wednesday – zone activity at Pulau Ubin and interviews with President Clark afterwards; Thursday – Zone Conference; Friday – work day but the entire Johor Bahru Zone (West Malaysia) will be here in Singapore; and Saturday – Elder Oaks and a member of the Presiding Bishopric will be here and give a devotional.
Next week is gonna be crazy!
