E-mail - Nov. 27, 2006

"Thanksgiving was a blast and having preparation day on Thursday made the week go by even faster. Lawrence is baptized! It was a really interesting baptism and there were more people there than at Kofi's. The water heater broke so he came up shaking like a leaf. That Satan is a tricky one, but Lawrence was determined. It's an amazing thing to be a part of, but having experiences like this really put things into perspective. It is interesting to hand over responsibility to the ward. I didn't really see that with Kofi. All of a sudden, he has hometeachers and he is being interviewed by the Bishop. It feels strange to have him "lifted off my mantle" so to speak. All of a sudden I think that Hometeaching is the most important calling in the church. It probably was before but I just didn't notice. But I'm so afraid that he'll get lost like so many recent converts do. Less active members as well. But it is good. The work is progressing. For some reason this week has renewed my excitement for Missionary Work. It's a good time to be alive. The main message of this e-mail is DO YOUR HOME AND VISITING TEACHING! and I love you so much."
