Fun Week in SC

Hey ya'll!

Life is great here! Brian is planning on the 23rd for his baptism, I'm excited for him! It will be a great day.

Last week I got to play the piano at a Hispanic baptism! It was really fun, there were 3 young convert kids getting baptized. They bore the most clear and amazing testimonies I've ever heard come from kids!  They repeated everything in English and Spanish. One of the kids said, (he was 12 yrs old) "I know that I can be just like Jesus, some people tell me I can't, but I know that one day I will be just like him and do what he does!" He had a super amazing understanding of the gospel!

Elder Pace and I found a few new people to teach last week, so we
are excited about that!

I don't really have any pics, except this one, it is a view of our
apartment complex....I like to walk outside in the morning and look
and the palm trees, peaceful.

Elder Bret Nielson of the Seventy will be visiting our mission on the
29th. I'm going to do a special musical number with Sister Hathaway.
She has an amazing voice and we are writing an arrangement of the
baptism songs from the primary hymn book, using the cannon
progression, changing the melody. I'll send a video of it when we
finish putting it together. It's going to be great.

Elder Parker hit his year mark last week! I can't believe it has
already been 1 year! Elder Pace came out with Elder Parker and Elder
Scarff, so 3 of my companions had their year mark last week! Crazy!
And I only have 5 months left?! Ahh!

I love ya'll and hope that you all have a fantastic week!
