September 2nd, 2014

What a wonderful week! Sorry, this email is going to be kind of short, but I wanted to let you know that all went smoothly with Kat's baptism!
Codey has family in Georgia and New Jersey and they all came in for the baptism, which made it an even more special experience. Kat's family isn't super supportive of her decision to join the church, so we think it meant a lot to her to have so much support from Codey's family! A cool part about the service, is that Kat wasn't the only one getting baptized! The other University sisters had a baptism as well, which was so cool for our branch!! The program went according to plan and the actual baptism itself was fun, to see Kat's face beaming with joy as she came out of the water and as soon as she could, she turned to her husband and gave him a big kiss! Sister Bradshaw and I giggled because it is something we totally could've seen coming. They are so cute. :) I think that has been the neatest difference in teaching Kat, that they truly have had the temple in mind throughout the whole process. They have an ultimate goal of being sealed in the temple, which made teaching her the lessons seem to take on a greater importance in a way. We, as missionaries, are always striving to see people for their potential, picturing them dressed in white, making covenants with Heavenly Father in the temple. But to have our investigator already have that vision for herself without us having to try and help her establish it, was really, really cool. I love her!
Oh and yesterday our branch did a cookout for labor day, and afterwards Kat and Codey took us to go hike Mt. Nittany! It was so fun! And of course, in the middle of the hike the rain started to pour on us. You can always count on rain in PA :) Love you all! Have a wonderful week!!
