What a marvelous week and a wonder, we ate some dang good food, made someone a candidate for the celestial kingdom, and had zone conference.
We will start at the baptism
Here is the story of Patrick Perera: once upon a time there were some sister missionaries in the town of Lumberton Texas. They knocked on his door one day and he let them in. Over the next couple of weeks they taught Patrick all about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. He loved it, and wanted to be baptized. Around this time the sisters faithful District Leader (me) realized Patrick was young, single, and an adult. So I made the sisters refer dear Patrick to the Beaumont YSA elders and they proceeded to teach Patrick the gospel. It took awhile. But eventually Patrick was put on date to be baptized. Meanwhile there was a transfer in the mission and I moved to the Beaumont YSA with Elder Abbot. 3 weeks passed and we continued to fellowship him and teach him the gospel and then on September 1st,he was baptized into the church. We are taking him to the temple on the 14th so thats gonna be sick 🤘
To celebrate for Patricks baptism we went out to this super good place called Tia Juanita's and had grilled shrimp quesadillas, super good. Then later in the day, I used my electrician skills and fixed this members light. So he bought us dinner at Logans Roadhouse 😛 I love food in Texas ☺️
And we had zone conference! Our segment we did was actually really good. We are helping the zone build better member relations and so we gave them a bunch of ideas.
Well I gotta go but I love you all and hope you all have a great week!
