Caitlyn was Baptized!!

November 2, 2015
Hey Everyone, 
Hope that you all had a good week. We had a great week! Caitlyn was baptized on Halloween so that was fun. We had to be in early Friday night and Saturday night. I hate being stuck in the apartment. We did some deep cleaning and I cut my hair so it wasn't to bad. Caitlyns parents are divorced and we had to get permission from her Dad for her to be baptized. She took the permission slip to him and he said "Why do you want to get baptized? That is weird!"Caitlyn responded and said "So I can come closer to God, and return to live with him in the Celestial Kingdom." Her Dad couldn't argue that so he gave her permission. 

We received our transfer calls on Saturday. Elder Todd and myself will be staying here in Burlington for another 6 weeks! It should be good. We have a few of people who are preparing to be baptized. Heavenly Father is defiantly helping us to find people to teach! On Friday we got to go to the temple because someone Elder Todd taught was going through to recieve her endowments. It was nice to be in the temple twice this week. We can't always do that, but we are so close and President Jensen always approves people to go to the temple if it is for someone that we have taught. 
2 Nephi 31:20 Press forward feasting upon the words of Christ, and we can have eternal life. That is paraphrased of course, but I really like that scripture. Heavenly Father promises blessings as we obey. If we endure then we will return to live with God. Love you all!
-Elder Lords
