Happy New Year!!!

Hello everyone!
Well I hope you all had a good New Year. Ours was pretty good we slept right through it. We didn't get to stay up late or do anything. Rachael did get baptized on Saturday! So that was a wonderful way to start the New Year, but other then that the day was really slow. We had a really hard time getting in with people. Saturdays are usually pretty slow but it seemed even more so that way this Saturday. Everybody either had company over or was sleeping so they could stay up or were getting ready to go out somewhere. So we ended up just going to some members after we had dinner. Rachaels baptism was amazing thought. There was so many people there! We had to hold it in the chapel instead of the Relief Society room because their were so many people. It seemed like it was almost a sacrament meeting; there were so many people there. Keosha, one of our investigators was there. We have been trying to get her to a baptism for a while because we felt that it would really help her, but she is scared of being in large groups of people and in front of people. So it wasn't the greatest thing for her. I have never met anybody that is so afraid of people before. So we had to go talk to her about it and how whoever she wants to be there will be there. She is getting baptized on the 14 and she still has her mind set on that which is awesome! We have a few baptism's coming up this month which we are really excited about. It should be a white month here in Blanding. Between the other elders and us we have 14 dates for this month. It sounds like some of theirs will fall through but we should still have an awesome month! We are looking forward to it.
So did everybody enjoy their Christmas break? Now its time to get back to the real world. We are looking forward to it. These past couple of weeks have been kind of slower in regards to the work, but everybody is getting home now. Things should be getting back to normal which will be really good. We had some really good lessons with some of our investigators just before the break then they all left for the Holidays and we haven't been able to meet with them for a couple of weeks. So we are looking forward to getting the teaching pool going again.
Where did the last 11 months go to?? I can't believe that I have been out for that long! The time flies by. I hope I am living up to the Lord's expectations. This next year is going to fly by!
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! I love you all! Be safe and Be smart!
