Well hello there family and friends!!! This week has been full of service, pain, and interesting turns.
We weren't able to see Helena very much this week, but she made it to church on Sunday to be confirmed!!! For those of you who don't know, confirmation in our church is a little different than others. After the baptism of water, comes the baptism of fire. After someone has been baptized, they are blessed by the laying on of hands to receive the Holy Ghost and to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a crucial part of the baptism and the covenant that you make. I am so glad that Helena made it. It was actually a funny experience. She had told our Bishop that she wanted Brother Waldram to confirm her, and then when we saw her, she told us she wanted Brother Weissinger to do it. When she got up there, it ended up being Brother Waldram that performed the ordinance, and that was amazing! It was just what she needed to hear, and we found out later that that is what he needed to do to feel better and be in a better mood. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and there are no coincidences in this life. Like ever!!
I love you all!! Hope you have a great week!!
