Anya's baptism

2012 February 6,

We really got around our area this week. We even got some people to talk to us on the street in the freezing cold weather. It was the coldest week of the winter I would say this last week. (-28 C) But over all this has been a really warm winter. And then all the new people that we were going to meet with at the end of the week canceled or were unreachable. We keep trying though to find new investigators. Sis Fitzsimmons is so great. She always has a good attitude about everything. It was so amazing to see Anya get baptized!!!! She is such a miracle. I just want to be her friend for forever. Sis Fitzsimmons and I were able to talk to her mom while the other Sisters were taking care of Anya during the baptism. Her mom did seem really happy for her daughter. She gave us presents. Her mom is a teacher at a French school her in the city. She told me that she discovered that one of her acquaintances is a Professor of French at BYU. She was very, very excited about this. She said that BYU must be a good school if this man is working there. Anya looked like an angel. President Rust baptized her and he had to twice because her feet came up. I only got to see her get the Holy Ghost through the window of the door to the sacrament hall because we were going to our other church meeting also and made it out of our class a little late. I love her! We had a miracle happen last P-day. We were at the mall trying to find Sis Fitzsimmons a coat for spring. And a girl came up to us and started talking to us. She spoke English really well and said she had been to English club one time. She started asking us why we decided to come on our missions and we invited her to the baptism on Saturday to come and see what our church was about. She agreed to meet. Then she ended up as one of the meetings that didn't work out, but it was still a testimony to me on how we are watched all the time and if we are being representatives of Christ all the time people notice it. We also finally got a person from our branch to call "N" (new member). She has really been struggling lately because she hasn't had a job for a while now and she was never fully paid for the last job she did. We just keep telling her that she needs to keep the commandments especially paying tithing and then she will get the blessings. The branch is going to send her a bit of money to help her out. I hope you know that I love you all!!!!!!
