Things are going great here in Tsukuba! We are having a baptism on Saturday
for J***! He is nine and his dad is inactive and his mom was recently
baptized. He is so cute and so ready! It was kind of dramatic because we
finished all the lessons and he has been ready for a few weeks but the
bishopric wanted his dad to baptize him. No one was really doing anyone about
finding out about his dad doing it so we took some action. We talked to his
mom and she said her husband has been drinking and smoking so he won't be
able to do it. We just set a date with him and tried to consult with the
bishop but he wasn't ever responding so we had to just make it happen.
Finally, yesterday at church we were able to talk to the bishop and he met
with J*** and visited his dad last night to get permission and it's all
gonna work out! He's getting baptized on Saturday woohoo! We also just
started teaching our friend M***. She's from China. She is awesome and
already believes it all. The Chinese are SO prepared! Pray J***'s
baptism goes through and M*** starts progressing!
