Rescue Test in Action

This week was great! The baptism went through as planned. Tiffany was baptized by her husband Matt. Matt baptized his 8 year old son, Skylar, as well. It was a really neat experience. Matt grew up in this ward when he was younger. He went less active about the time he was 18. The ward council gave us the name when they figured out that Matt and his family moved back into our ward. The rest is history. The baptismal service was very powerful. It was lost of the long time members of the ward who remembered Matt and his family from when they were young. Matt's mom also came up from Southern California for the occasion. It was a very good experience. Elder Miller also came back down for it, so that was cool.

Elder Platt and I upped the numbers this week and we have some promising new investigators that we teach. One is named Luis. He is about 20 and he is friends with a member that was baptized about a year and a half ago. We taught him the restoration and invited him to be baptized, which he accepted. The area is doing really well. We have 3 more baptisms scheduled for before I leave here. We figure I'm out of Salinas in early May. 

The training is going well. Elder Platt is adjusting to missionary life very quickly. As long as missionaries go out and go to work they are happy. It is the missionaries that don't work that have trouble. Elder Platt falls into the first category. He's a good companion. 

Thanks for all the love and support. 

have a good week,
Elder James Richards
