This week has been really good!! The Sturgell's were baptized this week! The baptism went really well and also the confirmation. Elder Brumbaugh and I had the opportunity to baptize brother and sister Sturgell. It was an awesome experience! Sister Sturgell grew up Jehovah's Witness and she was actually ordained by one of her priests as one of the 144,000 who are going to be saved. (Jehovah's witness believe only 144,000 people will be saved into heaven) but she still ended up converting to LDS which is just so cool to me. She was crying the whole time during the baptism and confirmation! It was so cool. Elder Brumbaugh and I are still getting along super well and having a ton of fun and working hard! We have 2 more people on date and we're working with another family named the Moore's and they are an active family but the father has some w.o.w issues he's trying to work out so we go over there and teach him and check up on them quite often. So anyways, we went over to their house last night because we didn't have a dinner appointment and they told us that we should come over anytime that we didn't have dinner so we took them up on the offer hahaha and we went over there and they made this super good BBQ and they grow their own Jalapeños so if you know me, you know I love hot stuff and I had to go and try some. They were super hot but really good! But anyways, after we had got done eating, we went outside and shot the bow and arrow for a little bit and we played "Horse" with it which was pretty cool since I'd never shot a bow! Then after that, we took it inside and the mom gave us a message about the atonement and we bore our testimonies about the atonement and then the husband told us that he payed his tithing for the first time in a long time and he ended up finding ply-wood the next week for 85% off the original price and that is what he does for a living so he Recieved a huge blessing for paying tithing and that was just a big testimony builder on its own for me! It was an awesome night and we gained a ton of trust with their family. It was such a fun and good week this week! I'm writing this a little early because I'm headed off golfing with brother Bingham!
Love, Elder Bowler
