Elder Tavake, Jonathan, and Elder Beckman at Jonathan's baptism

Well.... Richmond is beautiful! I love it here! I don't want to leave or get transfered. The ward is awesome and the area is beautiful!  You could compare it to main street in Farmington... you know the one road with all the trees on it.. well that is the case on every road around here and its so cool to walk down a road and have everyone outside chillin and going and talking to everyone... but its funny we don't really knock doors becasue everyone is already outside and we end up talking to them forever just about life and where we are from and stuff.  It's way funny how fast time flys by.  We maybe do half of a block (6 houses) every hour becasue people just love to talk.
So we had the baptism on Saturday and it was an all day event. We were there at 1 to fill up the font.  It took 3 hours to fill because we had to turn it off every 10 min. and then restart it so that was fun! So we got everything set up and ready for the baptism.  A lot of the ward showed up which was awesome.  I'm so glad they did.  Bro. Dillman baptized him because Bro Dillman is a fireman and probably the only person strong enough to do it all by himself.  After that we finished up the program and then Elder Tavake and I went out to dinner to celebrate,  we went to a place called Penn Station, its a cool sandwich shop.  We went there and then to Jonathan's house to talk with him and visit.  It was a super fun day!
Love ya,
Elder Beckman
