Aimee's Baptism September 24, 2016

Dear Family & Friends,

Amiee was baptized this week!! It couldn't have went any better. She was really excited for it and we made sure to keep close contact all week with her to make sure she was ready. It's always scary the last week before a baptism because it seems like something always gets put in their way to try to stop them from making it. Amiee was able to stay on track and Saturday was a great day for her. She even stood up and bore her testimony to everyone. There was great support from the ward and the few young women we do have. They are definitely excited to add one more to their numbers. Sydnea also was able to come with her mom to watch Amiee get baptized. That made her even more excited for her baptism which should be coming up soon. Hopefully the week after conference but if not it will be at the end of October. So we are excited for that! Amiee also stood up in sacrament meeting and bore her testimony again after her confirmation. It's been cool to see her learn and grow. The cool thing is that there is more to come.

We finished up transfers this week so that was good. It ended up all coming together nicely and everyone got into their new areas with transportation and housing so that's all that matters haha. We also were able to send the departing missionaries out and pick up the new ones again. I love going to pick up the new missionaries! It's so cool to be able to see them right when they come down the escalator and take their first steps into Sacramento. They have no idea how lucky they are to be where they are at and they have some amazing things ahead of them. I definitely didn't know what was ahead of me when I first got here but it's cool to look back and remember all that has happened.
I'm super excited for this upcoming transfer. There are a lot of good things going on in the mission. It will be busy as usual but I feel like there will be some incredible miracles that will happen over these next 6 weeks. There's a lot of work left to do here.

Love you all!
