January 26, 2009 - Colyn FINALLY received his package from home!!! He said he was so excited!!! We sent him lots of things and among them was a gummy "Mexican Dinner". He said he chuckled while eating the gummy taco because it was the closest he will get to eating an actual taco for two years. But even better news ... He had another BAPTISM this week. And he got to Baptize two of the family members - The Father and his son who is thirteen years old. Colyn's companion baptized the mother. The Familia de la Cruz. "It was an awesome experience. My first time baptizing. The water was freezing, but I didn't feel anything because I was so in the moment of the experience...(or maybe because my legs were numb). This family is golden and is going to do great things in the church. It was fun teaching this family.
Mom, Dad, Chase and Dallis... This work is so good and true. The Church is so true. This baptism really gave me a boost."
