Can't believe how fast this week went! Oh man! We did a ton, all of it
culminating in Saturday baptizing Morgan!! Holy smokes. So amazing. I
don't think I've said much about her, but she is incredible. She has
one of the most amazing stories growing up, and evidence to me that
hard work creates miracles. She's flipping a genius and is about to
graduate from A&M to become a teacher. Heck ya! Haha anyway. Her
baptism was stupendous.

We went on an exchange with a companionship that's been struggling a
little, and it was awesome to have a heart to heart, and find with
them. It also happened to be one of the days that poured rain. Like,
outside for 2 seconds dripping wet rain. And we biked all over. Hahaha
drenched!! Set a baptismal date with one of their investigators,
though. Which is a rad story all on its own!

Also. Probably one of the funniest moments this week, we get this
random text from a less active "hey I got my lightsaber wanna see?" So
you of course, less active reaching out to us, and a lightsaber??
We're there so fricking fast! Hahaha! Pretty gnarly light saber, too!
It was yellow. Pretty sweet. Cost him $300. Haha! Taught a pretty
powerful lesson about church and stuff too.

This week we've had a lot of run ins with some people. Being on a
college campus means we meet a ton of brilliant people. Which is
great. Some of the best conversations I've ever had have been here.
But it's also a pain, because when people learn a lot, they figure
they know it all. These are the kinds of people that would rather ask
Google than ask God. This week I've posed the questions several times
of "who knows more, me or google?" Obviously answer is Google. But the
follow up question is "who knows more, Google or God?" And that stumps
people. Haha! One lesson I've definitely learned while being here is
that God for sure knows more, and is thankfully way more honest than
google, or anything else!

All in all, it's been a great week!

Love ya!
