The Highs and Lows!

Hey everyone! Man this week was a great week! And it also stunk a little bit! Oh well though, what can you do?

Edmund's baptism went so great! He passed the interview no problem, everyone prepared their talks, the font got filled and everything just went so well! Very spiritual baptism and he was so prepared to get baptism and "become a child of Christ" as he always would say. His son gave a talk on the Holy Ghost and did amazing and started crying in it. The Spirit was super strong and he did such a great job! Ivaldo is the best! And so is Edmund! We got to help confirm him yesterday as well which was also super spiritual. Edmund is just the best and he is going to be a huge help in the Paramaribo branch! He can speak like 6 different languages and is going to be helping translate into Portuguese since there's quite a few Portuguese people here. He is such a joy and is so excited to bring the gospel to everyone! Just wonderful!

We had a pretty great week because of the baptism and we have an investigator that is just progressing so well! Her name is Lilian and her dad is the Branch President in Koeresan and she is so prepared as well! We had a lesson with him there on Friday on the Plan of Salvation and the temple and it was just amazing. She got so excited about the temple and is very prepared and willing to change her life. Very excited for her.

One thing that stunk is that Elder Hood and I got sick... Elder Hood got very sick and it looks like his Zika is back (or however you spell it). So we've been spending some time inside the last few days while he's been recovering and we're hoping to get back out soon! I just had a little cold and am feeling better now so no worries. Other than that we had a great week though!

And quick shout out to my dad! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Man I have the best dad in the world and I am so grateful to have him in my life! He's an inspiration to me! I hope you have a wonderful day because you really deserve it! Love you!

Other than that, this week was pretty normal! The Vroom family gave us food one day which was pretty awesome of them! They are just awesome!

Hope you all have a great week and choose the right! Y'all are awesome!
