June 29, 2015 Hilaire's Baptism!

Hiya Fam!

Everything's good over here! Hilaire's baptism had sooooo many little issues, but it all worked out. For example, the water heater isn't working, so the font was FREEZING!! You should have heard Hilaire gasp when he went in. Elder McPherson baptized him, and I confirmed him yesterday. 

And guess what???  This week, Riley is going to the Temple for his Grandpa! And Gail, his mother, is getting her endowments out!! :D
We met with Finula on Wednesday, and guess what? She actually taught her friend about the Plan of Salvation!! No kidding! Her friend said she was afraid of death, and Finula said she wasn't, and then taught her about the Plan! Also, she's reading Hugh Nibley! She actually went out and bought a book for £20!! She said herself, she's gotten an answer, it's just difficult to come to grips with what that answer means. It's difficult! No one can deny that! She came to the baptism, but she left before we could speak with her. She also couldn't come to church again. But I'm certain everything will work out.

We met with Vincent on Tuesday, and a lot's happened since then! We did a lot of finding, but we really didn't find many people that were interested. Shame. 

Mom asked how people we approach treat us.  You do get those people. But most are at least polite, even if they aren't interested. I've gotten people actually saying "I don't mean to be rude, but I'm not interested", all the time actually. 

We do use a phone. We actually just got a new one this week! It's a Samsung. It's the most durable phone you can find! Ha

Is there anything you need from me? Anything I can improve on in my emails?   Thanks for all that you have done! :)

Love you all! Have a great week! The house looks great! You guys look great! The girls look big!! And so does the TV! Jealous! We're getting a heat wave this week! Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain along with it!!
