23 May 2016 - Week 30 - 75 Weeks To Go!!!

Ok! Pretty good week! We went fishing last p-day and I caught 3 fish! Just little blue gill not any bass but it was still fun. We played basketball on Wednesday(we usually do). Then Saturday was probably my fave day of my whole mission!! We had a baptism for Patrick at 10 in the morning. It was a great turn out - we had a lot of members there and it was a really cool experience for Patrick! It's so awesome that he got baptized! We have been teaching him for about a month now! He is a great kid with a really hard life so far, hopefully this will help! Then Saturday night we had a craw-fish boil for Darby who is going off to Utah for college. We had probably 40 or 50 pounds of craw-fish, and shrimp, fish, and alligator! Which is so good!! They grilled up burgers, hot dogs, and a bunch of other stuff but we all just ate the craw-fish! It was so cool, there was probably the whole ward there! It was Dang fun! On Sunday was the confirmation and Patrick's grandfather did it and it was awesome!! Patrick's family was supper less active and through teaching Patrick they have decided to come back to church! But yeah that was basically my week :) ok i gotta go now, we are fixin to leave so we might be able to go fishing tonight! Love you all!!  - Elder "love them craw-fish" Gilbert

    Keep up the fishing of fish and fishing of men.
