Way way way happy homies. The baptism went smoothly and lots of people from the ward came and there was ice cream after, so ya know, double awesome. She was just giddy all morning. When she came out of the water and was going to dry off she just kept giggling this adorable little, "this is the greatest thing in the world" kind of giggle. Then on Sunday she got up and bore her testimony and it was absolutely tender. She just so humbly and sincerely talked about how she knows this is the true church and how she could feel Jesus in the room. Seriously just the greatest. After church she called us over and had a tithing envelope in her hand and said, "Did I fill this out right?" GAAAAHHHH. So happy.

So Kemi was our only investigator, and she was baptized and confirmed this week...so we were officially investigator-less. INSERT MIRACLE STORY. A member in another ward told the sisters in his ward that his friend wanted to learn about mormons. Which is way happy, anyone who wants to learn is good news. It's even better news when the friend actually lives in our area! Her name is Dene and she is way cool. We already met with her and she loved everything we had to say and then came with us to Family Home Evening that very night and is planning on coming to church with us this Sunday! She even is already asking us how baptism works and is like in love with temples and wants to know all about them. WAY PUMPED ABOUT IT.

My first time since being on a mission :D
My heart is so full this week. I love being a missionary. I love Canada. I love the city (which I was afraid of for a while, but we're past that now). I love Sister Van Vleet. I love the gospel.
As Jean would always say, "life is good."
Peace and Blessings
P.S. Ok so the story isn't necessarily "funny" this week, mostly just way crazy. We were in a town about 40 minutes outside of the city with our relief society president Sophia to try and contact a less-active out there. We were going through the culdesac when a little car come FLYING past us and rips around the corner. We had to pull over so we didn't get side-swiped. Not even a second later, a big red truck came past going just as fast but in REVERSE. We're pretty sure the truck was chasing the little car or something. We pulled out the culdesac to see the big truck turn down the street (going forward now). Craziest part of the story is that the truck had like twelve bullet holes in the tailgate! Weeeeeeiiirrd. The less-active wasn't even home, but we got a crazy story out of it. The video attached is while we were driving home. We'll call the video real PS story haha
P.P.S I met people this week who know where Gridley is and have even been there! Several times!! WAY HAPPY
