Elder Devin Oviatte--July 6, 2012

Man this week has been incredible. So we had our baptism last saturday. Her name is V. She was a referal from a ward member. She came to some dance that the stake was putting on and she enjoyed the people and the environment that she wanted to see what church was like. So on the following Sunday she just walked up. We started teaching her and she was so ready for the gospel. We taught her the restoration and when we were done we asked if she had any question and her only question was how to become a member. Me and Elder Manga just started laughing a little. We countinued to teach her and my favorite was the plan of salvation. She asked how Jesus showed himself to prophets before he came to this earth so we must have been spirits before we got our bodies. She was confirmed a member and the spirit was really strong during that. 
Elder Manga is the district leader so we went to another baptism this Saturday. Her name was N. She is a single mom of 5 kids and is so cool! I was glad that we got to go and see that. All four missionaries sang for it. ehhh! We sang Jeruselum, it is our mission song. We have our first zone conference with the new mission president. After the baptism we talk to alot of her family and friends that came to her baptism. 
At the baptism we all had matching watches and ties. I'll try and get a picture to yea. So we had a less active come to church. She wanted a blessing. We knew really nothing about her or anything but as Elder Manga started giving her a blessing it was so powerful. as he was blessing her thoughts would pop into my head and as they did he would say them. When we finished she said that we had spoken of things that only she knew. Blessings are amazing, I love giving them now. 
Um lets see what else happened..... ohhh we had a member from America give us beef jerky. Oh my goodness soo good. Elder Manga Had never had it before and he fell in love with it. haha. I might try sending you guys amazing European chocolate but maybe after it cools down. I havn't seen the sun in like 4 days. It has been raining so much!!!  The olympics are getting so close. all the missionaries are getting more and more excited. Everyone else her just thinks it is going to be a annoyence. We'll yea that all for now. Hope everyone is okay with the fires and such. They even made it onto the news out here. With love
Elder Oviatt
