Halls Baptism

So like the title suggested the Halls got baptized Saturday and confirmed Sunday. I had the wonderful privilege to baptize Sis. Hall and Elder Gunnerson baptized Bro. Hall. It went very well and successful. Then we were able to take part in their confirmation. The Grandma did not get baptized but does have a date for October 19. So we will be watching General Conference with at the Halls on Saturday and Sunday! Super excited for that and can't wait!

We were able to meet with Hannah on Thursday and she is super solid. So we taught her the Word of Wisdom on the second lesson, which we rarely ever do and committed her to stop drinking coffee for at least a week. So Elder Gunnerson and I happened to teach her the word of Wisdom on the second meeting (which rarely ever happens) with her and she has agreed to keep that commandment and stay away from coffee till our next meeting. So she had to stay away from coffee, which caused her concern since she didn't know how to focus with all the homework and tests she had coming up for Carroll College. So we promised her that if she read the Book of Mormon and prayed before she started her Homework or test she will have the spirit with her to help learn and understand. She saw us Thursday and she said it worked! She and her roommate were reading the same book and she said she understood it perfectly and her roommate didn't understand it at all. She also said she read and prayed before her math test and she got a 92% which she says she never does good on her math test, which she now found a strong testimony in not drinking coffee and to read and pray before her studies! So Hannah is continuing in not drinking coffee which is amazing! We will be seeing her this week and she said she is going to watch General Conference.

Other than that not much else happened last week. We do have a baptism happening on the 3rd for Alex who is 9 yrs old. I guess that is it. Have a great week!
