Well, Tim was not baptized Saturday, but Juan went through the temple!!!!!! He was baptized when Sister Walker was here, right before I came. So I've been working with him for about 10 months, and he received his endowments Saturday! I always call him Tio Juan, or Uncle Juan haah. As you can see from the pic, a lot of missionaries worked with him! His family lives in Mexico right now but he skypes/calls them every day. I've met them before and they're the sweetest. After he was baptized, he taught them everything he knew, and they went to their church building in Mexico to find missionaries and say they wanted to learn the rest! So they were baptized in February, and will all be able to be sealed this coming February. They're so excited :) We are too! We all want to go to the sealing in Mexico! Juan is such an example. He's one of those people who just recognizes truth. I don't think he really needed any of us here, but we've sure needed him! He's been serving as our branch secretary for quite awhile and is such an amazing example to me!
Tanya is doing well! She set a date of November 23. I haven't seen Claudia, but thinking she's doing good as well.
The biggest miracle EVER happened on Sunday! We went to ward council that morning, and a man was there who I'd never seen before. His name is Bishop Maughn, a former bishop from a different Baton Rouge ward. When the ward had us tell them what's going on with Robert and Marquetta, their legal issue came up again. Turns out this Bishop Maughn is a lawyer. A different one than Bishop Baum who've I've been on the phone with trying to get help. When Bro. Maughn heard the problem, he said, "Oh, we can get that taken care of." Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!! He's going to do it for free, I think even eat the court costs! He met Robert and Marquetta, all Ketta could keep saying was "thank you sir, thank you." Knowing for awhile that I probably would get transferred out of the 2nd Ward, my goal has been to get this divorce under way, I've kinda felt like it's my last purpose that wasn't taken care of in the ward. We have prayed for it so hard! It's like we prayed up Bro Maughn! Before he knew any of that he told us after the meeting, "this is lucky, I never usually come to these meetings." Haha, yeah. lucky. So Robert and Ketta have been taught everything, and are doing awesome. Robert still isn't smoking, Ketta is working through her medication issues, the kids are great and excited to be in the primary program. I talked to the law office a bunch yesterday, we got them the info they need, and now we're going there for an appointment today with Ketta. But they said this should all be done in under two months. I can't believe it!!! I'm so so so grateful!! Seriously an answer to prayer. I am just so close to them and will miss them tons!
Oh, so yes, I'm getting transferred for my last transfer. But it looks like I won't go far from BR, it looks like just back to the branch. So if that's the case, I'll move back to my old apartment, and be companions with Sis Burns. I'm on pins and needles waiting to find out! Pray that I stay calm!
I'm excited Grandma Hughes is coming to visit! I haven't written her for a few months, so please give her all my love! It should be a fun week. :) That's also so neat you were able to go to Moscow. You're right, the Palouse is the prettiest in the fall! Oh, speaking of fall colors, I saw some yesterday! I saw a banana tree, usually with all green leaves, but this one had a few yellow ones! We were joking that that's the extent of the fall colors here in Louisiana! Also good luck at the craft show! I hope you have fun! Garrett's game sounded awesome. Good job G! If you take any pics, send one my way! Also, I'm pretty sure the camera is fine.
Thanks so much! It'll be nice to have for my last transfer!
Ok, I better get going. Always lots and lots to do the transfer week Tuesday! I love you all bunches and bunches!
