New Year

Transfers were this last week on Wednesday, and we got the call Saturday, and the only change we had in our district is Elder Gittins is moving out Wednesday to Liverpool. Elder Flaherty is going to start training, so out of the 4 missionaries in the Scotia/Schenectady areas that share the car, two of them will be less than 3 transfers out (me and the new elder that will be Flaherty's companion). The baptism went great. Although the events leading up to it were funny. She pulled a prank on us by getting the zone leader who interviewed her to play along, and they acted like she wasn't worthy to be baptized. It was funny, but we joke around with her a bit too so it's all good. Because there were so many ward activities on Saturday, the baptism of Hannah Daignault was this last friday and the confirmation yesterday. It was so cool. I was a part of the confirmation circle, but after she got baptized, she immediately asked Elder Johnson and I when she could get a church calling!! It is so great to see the changes the gospel brings into people's lives. She's going to be such a great church member. Today I'm going to send two sd cards home the 2 gb and the 1 gb. I bought a 16gb, which will be plenty for the time between you getting them and sending them back. Our numbers were kind of down this week unfortunately because of planning the baptism and everything, but we already have 6 lessons planned for this week, and we haven't even gone out to contact all of our potentials yet. New Year's Eve was great. We visited with the Dalton's (inactive family) and had dinner with them. The best part was the burning of the Christmas tree. Every year they face their tree up and set it on fire, so the flames reach about 30 to 40 feet high. It's warm today, it got up to 47 degrees and it rained. Love you dad. Take care and I will talk to you again next week.
