This week was pretty awesome. We taught some great lessons and our investigators are progressing so well. Transfers came and went and I'll be staying in Woodstock for another 6 weeks which is great so I can participate in the baptisms.
James is getting really prepared. He has been reading the Book of Mormon like crazy and asks awesome questions. Some other missionaries were having a baptism at our building and we invited him. Both James and his wife Rebekah came. She has started listening to the lessons too and we're excited for her to get going. He came to church and we had a really cool lesson about eternal families.
Sydney is progressing well also. Her baptism is next Sunday so we're trying to get everything ready for that. We were worried at first she might just be getting baptized because her husband is a member but recently she's been progressing really well and I think she's ready.
We met with the Rodgers again last night. Had a great lesson with them. This time Dawn's husband Joel was there. He recently went through some difficult stuff with his health and I think it has really opened his eyes and heart to the gospel. He committed to reading from the Book of Mormon and praying about it. Also Dawn quit her job so she won't have to work Sunday. So awesome and we're really excited for her and the kids to be baptized.
Other than that... the weather has been amazing here. Like low 70s. And we've just been having a good time. Cool to hear about your choir mom wish I could of heard it. Hope work and everything is going good for you all back home!
