May 16 baptism!

My fellow Americans, this week was full of events, including a zone
conference, district fireside, and my favorite, 'W's' baptism! The
baptism was attended by ALL of the suriname missionaries AND President
Egbert! Mostly because it was right after zone conference and so
everyone just stayed after to support the baptism. It went really well
though and I feel very blessed to have been able to find and teach
W. Just last night, Me and Elder Geigenmiller were asked to
present a role play at a district Fireside. Almost all the members in
the ENTIRE country were there! I know almost all of them but it was
still a little nerve wracking. It ended up going very well though and
I thought it was a success. We talked about introducing the Book of
Mormon, even to member families, and how we should all be meeting
often with the missionaries and strengthening our testimonies through
daily scripture study, I have learned how important it is to read
daily from the scriptures and have found that to be something that if
left undone, can often leave a large hole in our hearts, and they
become heavy. I'm thankful for the chance I have to be here and I love
that I can be happy even in less than desirable circumstances. I hope
you all have a good week and I'll see you all soon!
Elder Carpenter
