A Baptism

This week was intense haha! So I figured out this week that I'm going to get transferred! So after spending 6 months in Kaneohe I'm getting transferred to Mililani! I'm going to be follow up training Elder Price. It's bitter sweet leaving Kaneohe I really grew to love everyone here. But I'm excited for the new adventure in Mililani! 

This week was very special to me because I was able to bring two people into the waters of baptism and confirm them! So now Emmarose Helewa Kamea'i'oMakaMaeUai'iLeimailani Sheffet & Tinniel Lelani Kealohapoihaole Sheffet are now members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I can't tell you how special it was to be able to do that, it was one of the best feelings I've ever had in my life. One of my favorite scriptures when it comes to this subject is 

D&C 18:10, 15-16

Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God; And if it so be that you should labor all
your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great
shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father! And now, if your joy will be great with
one soul that you have brought unto me into the kingdom of my Father, how great will be your
joy if you should bring many souls unto me!   

By the way, sorry it took so long to write today! I was at a big service project and an old man had a heart attack of some sorts.. So we gave him a blessing and had to talk with the paramedics and all that... so I just got back from that and now I can only email for like 10 minutes before our next appointment! 

Love you, have a good week!
