We had a baptism on Sunday for Isaiah. It was awesome! At first I was kind of worried because the font was filling super slow. We arrived at the church over an hour before the baptism was supposed to begin, but it still seemed like there wasn't going to be very much water in the font by the time we needed to start. But since he was a kid I wasn't too worried about having enough water. It was also kind of stressful because most of the people that came didn't show up until about 4:59, so the room seemed somewhat empty for a while. It was kind of sad because half of Isaiah's family was sick with strep, so they weren't able to be there. But it turned out to be well attended in the end. We scraped together a musical number with Primary children from the Ward and then afterwards they had refreshments at the Washburn's home.
As for other investigators, this past week was sort of rough for missionary work. We were on exchanges for 2 days, one of which we were with the ZL's which means that no work was being done in our area because of how they do those exchanges now. Also our desire to go seeking with faith this week was a little lack luster. There were some good parts to the week though. On Friday while I was with Elder Andrew in Fruitvale, Elder Herald had another lesson with the young woman and her friends. He brought along the Ward Mission Leader's wife, and they just answered questions. He said that it was just like before; there were a couple who were more interested than the others, and it's hard to commit people to things in groups. But the girls are taking turns praying for the most part so that's a good thing.
