Family Baptisms.....

Hello Family
Hope things that side are going good but from the emails and things it seems like they are!!  Anyway things are going good here and me and the comp are enjoying the time that we are having to be together and things!!!  We are excited because we were able to have some 5 baptisms yesterday as I was able to mention and things it went very well!!!  They were 2 families and one from a part member family the branch president daughter who was really excited for it!!!  We had a good time, we are planning to have another one here in the next 2 weeks but it will just be one and it should be set in stone by next week as we are going there to teach him and things like that!!!  Elder Ford is doing well and he is enjoying Lilongwe and things he will be used to it by the time I am out of here!!
The group has now been officially made a branch and things down here so we no longer have to go to the 47 branch there and things like that!!!  We will be able to stay in the area and do the things that we need to!!!  We are hoping for a couple of callings to be given to the branch members there so they will remain active and help to lift the branch!!!!  The mission is changing here for sure, it is looking like a whole different place, there are a lot of new faces coming in and fulfilling spots so it is weird to see them all especially when I traveled to Lusaka and saw them all!!! The Zone is doing well though they are all having a good time and we hope they are enjoying the mission work!!!
As time is coming to a close it is getting weirder and weirder to think about for sure and I can’t even realize that it is so close to the end!!!  People here keep saying it but never really internalized it haha but for sure it is there!!!  It will be difficult to leave all the friends here and things but hopefully things will work out.  I sent a suit case full of stuff to mission home yesterday so they are just waiting for me to come there get it and go!!!  Not too many things went really cool this week since I spent it in meetings but the meetings were good and President sure does have a vison for where the mission should and is going, so it is really good!!!  It sounds like things are good there and everyone is enjoying the time there!!!  I hope all will have a good week and I love you all!!!!
