#41: Tenth Baptism

This week was pretty sweet! :)  We had one baptism this last week, which was super cool and exciting.  This is the 10th baptism that I've been blessed to be a part of.  His name is Manuel Games Marquez.  He was baptized on April 6th. Our investigators seem to be growing fast!  We have found some really chosen people to accept the gospel, and hopefully they will be baptized this month or early next month :)  We have goal to have 4 baptisms.

We did hear from President Chavez (his mission president) this past week about his time in SLC and saw lots of photos as well!  We saw Elder Oaks wearing a fake mustache!! hahaha, we all laughed!!

On Sunday our branch president couldn't make it, so he asked me on Saturday to lead and direct the church meetings!!!!  It was CRAZY!!  I was super stressed Saturday night through Sunday because there's so much that I had to do to make sure that everything would run smoothly! haha  (I told him that I'm sure that this is preparing him for callings in the future)

Sounds like there are a lot of things happening back home!!  That's exciting and stressful at the same time!  (Our stake was split this last Sunday which will effect a lot of callings in our ward) I can't believe Brother Mooney isn't in the Bishopric now!  But, I'm excited for his new calling :) (he was called to be on the high council) You will have to keep me posted on the upcoming changes with the other stakes and the ward.

This week's scripture to "Ponderize" is:  Alma 32:35  I really like this scripture and how I marked it in my scriptures!!!  I can't wait for you guys to look through all my scripture and stuff like that!  You will like it a lot! :)

le amo,
Your missionary,
Elder Fowler

Alma 32:35
 35 O then, is not this real? I say unto you, Yea, because it is light; and whatsoever is light, is good, because it is discernible, therefore ye must know that it is good; and now behold, after ye have tasted this light is your knowledge perfect?
(I just love this picture-I can hear his laugh)

I stacked three golf balls!  Try it!  It's hard!
