Baptisms Fell Through This Week

I was traveling for work all last week and didn't get this posted.  Here it is now.

I'm sure you figured this out already, but yesterday was a holiday which is why I didn't write yesterday.

So I got my new companion, his name is Elder Reimann.  We actually came out together, we were in the same district together at the MTC.  Things are going well with him.  It's been a change though, not doing nearly all of the teaching like I was doing before, it's kind of a releif.

So the two baptisims that we had planned for this saturday both fell through, it was kind of a dissapointment, but I think they'll still get baptised, they just need a little more time.

[Investigator] was one of the people that was going to get baptized, but he didn't come to church this week, and he hasn't been coming very steadily (as in once every month or so), so we decided that it would be best if we gave him a little more time.

[Other investigator] was the other person that was going to be baptized, but we talked to him on sunday night and he told us that he didn't feel like it was something he wanted to do yet.  It was quite the interesting discussion, we spent nearly and hour and a half talking with him trying to figure out what was up.  We reviewed all of the baptismal interview questions with him and he answered in the affirmative to all of them.  We talked to him about baptism and why it was important, and he gave us all the right answers, from what he says, it sounds like he understands baptism as well as most of the basic doctrine.  I afraid that he's just looking for a big sign of something big to let him know that he needs to get baptized.  But, either way were planning on teaching him still, and we'll see if we can get it figured out.

Sunday was a crazy day, finding out that [investigator] didn't want to get baptized, and then on top of that, when we went to church on sunday, [The branch president] wasn't there.  We found out that he had had a brain hemorrhage sun. morning (I think that's how you spell it, but a stroke).  So he's in the hospital right now, and were hoping he does alright.

It's only been a couple days since I last wrote you, but this and knocking a bunch of doors pretty much sums up my week.
