This week was spectacular!!!

This week was absolutely spectacular.  Zone Conference was this week, and we met with all the missionaries down in Santa Maria.  I loved zone conference, it's always a place where a lot of spiritual revelation is gained.  It was neat to see all my friends from the MTC too .
But the greatest part of this week was, of course, Michael's baptism!  It felt great to feel the fruits of our labors finally paying off.  Michael is absolutely awesome.  On Friday when he was in his baptismal interview, he kept saying that he wanted to go to the sun, meaning the Celestial Kingdom, because that's the only place you can see God.  As you can see from the picture, Michael was just smiling all day long.  It was a neat feeling to go there early to fill up the font.  The Spirit was so strong as we just sat there, listening to the water rise.  After the baptism, while we were in there changing, I asked Michael how he was feeling, and he said that he felt warm.  The Spirit was just so strong the entire day.

As far as Thanksgiving goes, we were going to go to Paso Robles with Jose, but we asked permission from the Zone Leaders, they told us no.  We were a little bummed out but we'll probably be going to a restaurant with some members.  

I just can't get over the fact that November has come and gone.  Wow, the mission is going by too fast.  Christmas is one month from today too, so that's just crazy...

Well, sorry for the short email this week, but it was absolutely awesome.

    A baptism, so exciting. Love the visual of them listening to the font fill and focusing on the Spirit. I think Elder Harper was smiling all day as well, such a great missionary.
