January 4, 2016 -- A Baptism (A Great Way to Start the New Year)

This week has been full of recovering from Christmas treats and then even more celebrating on New Years.

On Saturday, Elder Ayre and I were grateful that we were able to see our investigator enter the waters of baptism. It has been amazing to see the gospel change his life. I met him the first night I went out teaching in Johnson City. In just one month the atonement of Jesus Christ has brought this man from sorrow and remorse to optimism and clarity. Seeing the true power of the gospel in action is one of the greatest blessings as a missionary.

The baptism went very smoothly thanks to the Binghampton ward. There is always a strong spirit during a baptism because someone is making a huge step in gaining a relationship with God.
The Church is true, the sky is kinda blue, and life is good.
