Dan The Man Is Baptized!

Hey Everyone!   Twas a great week out here in the Lords service.

Dan the Man got baptized! It was miracle, a tender mercy, and an amazing day! One of the most special baptisms I've had yet. Dan is a special son of God, and although his physical body is worn and tired, his spirit has been born again and is alive as ever! President and Sister Vest came to the baptism and Dan invited his non member friends. Brother Giroux provided a musical number recorded on his I pad because he is too sick to leave his house. It was so sweet. Dan is a jokester, when he came up out of the water, he has his shaky hands to his face to wipe off the water and he turned to Elder Beckstead and said, "Why'd you dunk me?" and everyone laughed. He was gleaming with a new light!
I love this Amazing Man!  This is how he holds his head up!
The Wicks Family from Indian Creek!
We have been homeless bums this week, we got kicked out of our house because the members we live with had their teenage son in town so we couldn't stay there, we've been sleeping at other sisters apartments on the floor and with the senior couple, we are two tired missionaries. Yet, its all apart of the fun!

Exchanges with Sister Fletcher!  
Ambers baptism is on the 8th of August now, we were so nervous to push it back but she was great about it. We feel we have more time to feel like she is truly ready. 

We took our investigator Kristen to the visitors center last night, she is preparing for baptism on the 15th of August. She is a young mom, and her main focus is how the Gospel blesses our families. Yesterday we were able to teach her about the temple and eternal families and she just cried, we are truly so blessed. Families really can be together forever. The family is the way God shows his love, the family is central is too his plan, the family is forever.
My Mom was sitting at the table writing me a letter when this picture came through on her phone from a member! Do you think my MOM cried, YUP, she did!   It said:
Your daughter is doing an amazing job! We love having her here and we are grateful for your sacrifices so that she can be here!  
"Righteous desires need to be relentless, therefore, because, said President Brigham Young, 'the men and women, who desire to obtain seats in the celestial kingdom, will find that they must battle everyday.' Therefore, true Christian soldiers are more than weekend warriors." Neal A. Maxwell

I love you all!   Make it a GREAT week.

XOXO Sister Flink
