Hey loved ones! 
          This week has sure been different we helped at a funeral and had a baptism in the same day saw some weird things that I hope I won't ever have to see again and I know now how not to fill a font! But before I tell you about the baptism I want to tell you about this girl we met.
          She is about 14 and her name is Jaden. She is Ashlee's age and about to go into high school. We were walking down the street and  saw her with her dog we stopped a talked with her for a little bit and at the end we asked if we could pray with her and if there was something in mind that we could pray for her. She said "pray that I can have the strength to be a good girl and not get lost in the bad things that happens in high school." I was so happy to hear that she wants to be a good girl and I hope and pray that we can help her be that good girl! 
          Our baptism Saturday was a little different. We had started to fill the font up two hours before but the plug was not working. Some elders came to help us and got it plugged.(so we thought) We went on our merry way. The water was going all the way till the baptism started. We had the opening song and talk and it was time for the baptizing but when they had opened the doors half of the water had drained out. But they were going to baptize him anyways! Just so you know he is not a small guy! They had him lay down in the water and the brother who was baptizing him was trying to get his belly under the water, then some other limb would pop up! They finally added more water and were able to baptize him after that. Over all, it was a good baptism, lots of ward members came to support him and he is now a member of the church. My companion and a sister in the ward and I sang a song at the baptism. It was good.
          Sister Andelin loves to sing so we sing a lot! We will be singing in church next Sunday we will see how it goes Sister Andelin thought it would be a good idea if for part of it I sang a solo I don't know how it feel about that. Music is a great way to bring the spirit. There is something special the music brings and it's awesome! The work goes forth and I am blessed to be able to help it! Love you all!   

                                                                                                         Till we write again,
                                                                                                         Sister Henderson
