We don't have any other baptisms in the immediate future. Vanessa is still sort of wishy-washy for next month some time. And we have a few other people with a baptismal date, but they are too early in the process to know if they are solid or have any real concerns.
Today was CrossFit, which was pretty fun. I didn't prepare for it as much as I should have, so I kind of pooped out early and then came back strong towards the end. But more importantly it was just fun to see everyone I hadn't seen for a while, like Elders Andrew, Simpson, and Pennington. After CrossFit and a short break, we played some ultimate frisbee and that was really fun, though very hot and exhausting. So it's been a good start to the week, and hopefully it will keep going in a positive direction.
Classes start at RCC today, and institute starts next week. They have free lunch every Wednesday at the institute and as missionaries we are invited to attend. It should be a lot of fun and a good way to meet the students.
We also should be getting a mini mission candidate some time this week, so we have that to look forward to. President Mullen told us that this young man has Asperger's so part of this mini mission is to evaluate how he can handle full-time missionary work. This assignment seems like a really big responsibility, but I'm sure things will go well and we'll know what to do to ensure this mission experience is best for him.
There was one really cool experience from the week. Andrew had asked someone in the YSA Ward to confirm him, and we had made the arrangements so that he could do the confirmation. Then on Saturday, he told us that he might have to work that day, since his boss had told him nearly 3 weeks ago that he couldn't have that Sunday off. But then, at 11:30 on Sunday morning, he received a call from his boss saying that he could wait to come in until 1:30 in the afternoon. That was just enough time for him to come to sacrament meeting and confirm Andrew. So the Lord looks out for us in lots of little ways, and if we remember to acknowledge those moments, we can get through the rough times.
See you soon,
