​W​ell howdy

Hey everyone, first off, this is a picture of us and Samantha, She is AWESOME. She got baptized on Saturday, she asked Elder Petersen to baptize her, and me to confirm her. She is really cool, and her Service was incredibly spiritual. The Young Women put on the whole show, and they invited some of their friends to come too. her mom spoke at her Baptism and talked about how it was a family "right of passage" to join a church different that what you were raised in, and gave a history of generations being raised in one church and joining another, so on and so forth. really amazing

then the sacrament meeting where she was confirmed, her mom was there, and the stake president and his wife spoke, they spoke very boldly about Joseph Smith, and gave some parts of Hugh B. Brown's "profile of a prophet". It was very black and white. Either it is TRUE or it is NOT it was a great experience for them both. Her mom says that she isn't looking to change church's, but she is very grateful that Samantha found a church that is so ready to support her and she has already seen a big difference in Samantha's life.

I can't wait to see what this year's holiday season brings us! hopefully lots of miracles!
