We woke up slept in a little. We ate breakfast opened gifts that we received. We got ready and went to members house for brunch. The whole family is crazy and it was interesting. We then went to the church were my companion got his Skype account set up. We went to a members house were we both skyped our families. They left before we were done so we had some snacks after we were done skyping. We then met up with the sisters at a families house for dinner they gave us ornaments with a name of Christ on them. After dinner we visited people that the Bishop wanted us to visit.
We had our studies and we did our weekly planning. Elder Pruitt and Lawyer were in our area so they stopped by our apartment. We then met up with the sisters to finish the list of people the bishop wanted us to see. We then split and saw Rocky to see how he is doing. We got to see his gun that he bought. After that we went to dinner at home town buffet. Then visited more people with the sisters. Then did a little tracting talked to these Jehovah witnesses for a long time. Headed back to the apartment my companion got transfer calls, since he is the district leader.

Finished with all the meetings.
Dinner at a members house. We shared what we learned this year. Then booked it to the baptism.
The baptism was for the sisters investigator Kim. We have been teaching her with the sisters. It has been a long road to her baptism cause she would always have something come up like being in the hospital.
It was a nice baptism.
Something funny after
I was standing there watching my companion fill out a baptismal record. Then sister Taggart walks up and is talking to Kim and is leaning on me. So I'm leaning away as much as I could. Then sister Taggart looks at me and realized I was not president Taggart. Everyone got a nice laugh at that one.
Finished the night doing some tracting met a nice guy that we will try to see again.
