This week has been great! I was transferred to Metairie with Elder Smith. Really nice companion. This is his 3rd transfer. He is a motivated missionary.
And neatest thing of all, we had an investigator get baptized this Saturday here. It's always nice to go to an area and have someone being baptized. Her name is Kristy. Very nice lady. She is actually blind, along with her husband. So we were able to help her be baptized down in the water since her husband was baptizing her. The Spirit was very strong there at the baptism and during the confirmation on Sunday. A wonderful weekend.
It's great getting used to this area. There is a lot of work to do. I feel very fulfilled because we are getting a lot of things done. Really neat. We have another lady named Stephanie that wants to be baptized. We are going to set up a date for her. She's very nice as well and has a couple connections in the ward.
I love the ward already. They are very involved in missionary work and provide ample opportunities to tie our investigators to the ward. I really like them.
Just a great week! I loved it. Hope this week is as good, if not better!
