Week 50: JOYce to the world!

HEY everyone! 

This week is gonna be short and sweet because we don't have too much time and we still have to buy food for the week. Why is it short? In summary, we took a 3 hour road trip to take a 1 hour test to drive in England and get another license. Yeah it was exciting. 

I didn't get transferred! Sister Thomson and I are still together :) 

I passed my driving test! 

Joyce got baptised! Wait, let me back up. 

Our investigator Joyce got back from Australia this week. Before she left we went over the interview questions with her and she had some concerns about Joseph Smith and about a modern day prophet. We did our best to overcome her concerns before she left, but all we could do was pray that things would work out. When she came back we were able to meet with her, and we talked about her baptismal date. She responded "yes, it's on Sunday, right?" The only problem was.. it was planned for Saturday and we had already had everything worked out. We told her that, and she had scheduled to go out of town all day Saturday, but to return Sunday. Before we got all crazy on arranging things, we went back over the questions to see if she still had concerns. She aced everything. It was amazing. We walked out of there floating on air, and we had then moved her baptism for Friday at 6pm. 

Needless to say, the next few days preparing for everything must have looked like 2 mad Americans running around constantly on the phone with tissues in their hands because of the colds we have. Eventually, on Friday night, it was 6 pm and the member of the bishopric wasn't there yet, and neither was Joyce. She had apparently missed the bus, and then got off at the wrong stop, but eventually, around 6:40, there was an awesome baptismal service with lots of members there and the spirit was amazing.

We also got to go to a baptism for an 8 year old named Aniyah. She is part of the Randhawa family who we have been seeing a lot (they are all members of the church). It was so cool, so many people there, and we got invited over to a couple homes for dinner. Two of my favourite things involved: baptisms, and free food! 

Pretty much things are amazing here and we are pumped up for another transfer together in Coventry :) 

That's it for now! Oh, and our ipads are operational now!
