So there I was, sitting down to lunch, and the phone rings. O wow...we are having a baptism on Saturday!! It was planned for April 3rd but the blessings of heaven are way too important to wait around. Then I must call President Hutchings, he says go. Actually he says "and away we go" but they both work. It turns into a day of meticulous planning on how we are going to work it all out. Then an hour later we realize we have to go to Fulton, KY on Friday. Find a way to plan that in there. Make some more phone calls to coordinate with everyone else and get to where we are needed most. Then make it here to the computer so i can tell you all about this great day.
You might wonder what made the day so great.
It wasn't the intense actions we were involved in. It wasn't the Baptism being moved up ahead of schedule (although that was really exciting). It wasn't even eating lunch with the other missionaries.
It was that fact that we were doing the work of the Lord. The Spirit will always make us feel good when we do what is right.
In the words of Elijah,
