Well, Kathleen was baptized Saturday and it was awesome! Really good baptism. Her brother, who is pretty anti, ended up coming and he like it so that was good. Still coming along with Elder Sorenson. He still doesn't talk much and if I do something that bugs him he completely shuts down, so I've tried talking to him about it but it stays quiet most of the time....which makes this transfer feel a lot longer. But our district leader is pretty good about things so we'll be going on exchanges for a day this week to help break the silence.
Umm, as for other people we are teaching, we found a great little family, the Turnidges. They have four little kids who are amazing. And the dad, Doug, he's a less active member who wants to come back to church. His fiancee, Amanda, is amazing. She soaks up the gospel like a sponge. The only hiccup is they aren't getting married until August of next year so she can't be baptized until they are married, which is a bummer. But they're great!
Umm, so that's really it for what's been going on here. Just keep me posted on how everybody is doing and such.
Thanks a bunch! Love you guys tons!
Love, Elder Lance Ririe
