This week was a great week! Brother Cooper got baptized! On Saturday morning we awoke at 5 and got ready for the baptism and then left by 6 to meet him at the church! We then taxied down to the ocean; a place called Alligator Pond and had the baptismal service there! It was such a wonderful experience! Very quiet with the ocean waves rolling! Brother Cooper was so excited and a little nervous as well! After he was baptized we had a small testimony meeting and it was so great to hear him bear his testimony on how he personally came to know that this was the true church!
We also went on a trade off with the zone leaders earlier this week! That was also a great experience! Got a break from the bike and got to ride in a truck for a couple days! The zone leaders live up in Santa Cruz not too far from Junction! It was weird to see small neighborhoods called Schemes because Junction doesn’t have anything like that. Just little houses scattered throughout the bush! But it was awesome to be with a zone leader for a while and learn more about teaching and finding!
I was also able to give a talk in sacrament this past Sunday! I was asked to speak on our branch mission goals because the branch president is really trying to get this branch moving. So I tried my best to give them some motivation on how to accomplish the goals and how we can’t do it without them! We also had a family from Texas close to where I was serving prior so that was really weird to see white people that aren’t missionaries at church! All in all it has been a great week! I know that as we continue to work our hardest and rely upon the Lord to strengthen not only us as missionaries but the branch and our investigators, we will be able to work mighty miracles for this Junction Branch!
