Elder McCade Tracy
June 3, 2013
I'm doing really well! This last week has been a blast, we met and taught a lot of amazing people. It has definately been busy, but we are able to handle it. Today we've already given two blessings and it's not even noon yet! So this week has already gotten off to a terrific start, all the people that we're working with are doing great and we got 5 people to church yesterday!
High - Blessing peoples lives with the knowledge that we have the full gospel on the earth once again and teaching people about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith
Low - Having someone call us the devil after we proved him wrong in The Bible, that was definately different experiance than anything else

Every week keeps going by faster and faster! Yes they did, it went really well. Before the baptism Keisha had Elder Carson and I draw to see who could pick the right sex of the baby and that's how she chose who would baptize her and Elder Carson won. It's ok though, because I was granted the opportunity to confirm both of them and give them the Gift of the Holy Ghost so it was pretty awesome with my first two confirmations so far :)
High - Finding some amazing people and setting three more baptisimal dates with our investigators and Felton is getting baptized this Saturday!!!
Low - Having Elder Carson get transfered because we've created such a great teaching chemistry over the last 12 weeks

I'm doing very good! Everything has been going just as it should, I've just been a little stressed out with my new comp. and being Junior and Senior Comp all at once!
His name is Elder Johnson, he is from Lindon, UT and he has served in New Albany for the past 7 months and this is his second area.
From what I've seen so far, yes, maybe because I have been working hard for the last 12 weeks and that's how I like to do things no matter what happens during the course of the day.
It was awesome! Elder Carson was able to come down from New Albany to baptize Felton on Saturday, and I was able to confirm him a member on Sunday! Also, Felton was able to get one of his friends to his baptism and we're gonna start teaching him soon. After his baptism, we went over to the house of another one of Feltons' friends and we were able to teach him the first lesson and commit him to a baptismal date for July 27!
Keisha and Kayla are doing amazing! They love having us come over and teach her the new member lessons.
High - Getting two new investigators from Feltons' baptism!
Low - Having Keishas' sister drop us, after having an amazing first lesson
