The Dedication is Paying Off

  • I get to be an Uncle twice!!!! That is so sweet. I'm so excited. You have no idea. Are they going to name their baby after me too? Just kidding. I'm so excited. I'm going to have a lot of little kids to spoil when I get home. For those who don't know, we are getting TWO grandbabies this year!! Our first and second. Ash Ali are naming their little boy Dexter; that just happens to be the nickname Ashton's friends gave to Devon some years ago. We are so excited about the babies; I guess he is too. MM
  • A new Elder came named Elder Stratton. Hahaha how funny is that? Now there is an Elder Briggs and an Elder Stratton. I find it funny.
  • This week was Zone conference. It was amazing. I learned so many new things about church organization and the priesthood. I didn't even know we knew that much stuff about it. It was crazy cool. I learned a lot. Conference was great too. I get so much more out of it on my mission, maybe it is because I actually listened to all sessions and paid attention. :) HEHEH
  • I also had my interview on Monday. President told me that he was sorry for making me a junior companion again. He said he didn't want it that way, but it was the only way it worked. I told him I didn't care. I'm not one to seek after leadership positions. I think I might get transferred from Visak soon. I don't want to though. I love it here.
  • The missionary work is going great. We have six people set for baptism in May and then we want to set 4 more people this week. So we should have 10 by Sunday. I hope so. :) I think I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after being whitewashed here. In Coimbatore, my old area, they had 11 baptisms two Sundays ago. It was so awesome. You should have seen the pictures. There were 4 families baptized.
