Larry got baptized and that's all I can think about. He came to church in a brand new SUIT! And he was smiling and said he could hardly sleep the night before, he was so excited! You could tell there was a change. The one where he's dressed in white is before his baptism and when he's in a suit is after. He is amazing! He couldn't stop smiling. His baptism was right after church and he changed and just looked great. His cousin,
Brother Fulgham and best friend for life got to baptize him. Brother Fulgham cried when he started saying the words. It was so sweet! Larry said he told Brother Fulgham his back was hurting before the baptism and he was worried... But when he came up out of the water he felt fine! I got the opportunity to speak about the Holy Ghost. It was special! We had everyone there write him a letter while he changed and then we put them in a folder for him and gave it to him at the end. He was the easiest person to teach.

We didn't see Zach this week... He bailed on our appointment and won't email us back. Oh.. and Cathy finally contacted us back. She sent a text yesterday saying: "my daughter is dead!" We tried to meet up with her but it didn't work out. We have no clue what to do. It's a shock to us.
Noel and Nanette are still doing good. They asked about General Conference coming up so hopefully they will watch it. We were only able to visit them last night and we just had a friendly chat. This week we are going to get them to set a date to get married! We want them back in church!!!
Guess what?? WE'RE MOVING! I have still been getting bit by bed bugs and so Sister Johnson in the office told us to look for a new place. We searched and searched and couldn't find anything. We enlisted the help of a few members and one of them called us and said she found a place. It's basically like the one we're in now but better and bug free. It has nicer paint and baseboards, a deck, a huge kitchen and laundry closet, 2 rooms.. Yeah, it's perfect! And the guy who owns it loves missionaries! He's neighbors with our members and he invited us over for dinner sometime! President approved it for us to move in today and so we have to have our Bishop’s wife inspect it and then we can move in. Sad thing is, we have to deep clean everything and trash our beds, couch, recliners, possibly desks, cork boards, a lot of stuff . Anywhere a bed bug could hide. And they can hide anywhere. Nasty. So wish us luck and no stress as we move and also that we'll still be able to work hard.
I love you so much. Like.... A lot! I hope you know that. Have a great week.
