Nyob zoo cov uas kuv hlub os!
Everything is ready for the big baptism this Sunday. We have Richard and Jeff, and the North Side has a woman named Kari (which still sounds like "Carrie" even though it has a 'K' instead of a 'C', and only one 'r', and an 'i' instead of an 'ie'). Richard is bringing a posse of friends and co-workers, and it will be held shortly after church, so there will be quite a crowd. Richard asked Brother Sawle to baptize him, which almost made him (bro. Sawle) cry. The thing that worries me is that Richard is a large man, and bro. Sawle is 72 years old...I hope his knees don't give out. Jeff still hasn't decided who he wants to baptize him.

Often we suggest to women who are baptized that they tie their hair back so it all goes under. As we were leaving Richard's house yesterday, I realized that I needed to make sure he knew about it to. His hair is the same length and color as Krissee's. Krissee offered to let him use her white scrunchy. ;)

That's neat how more cousins are going to BYU now. Maybe Megan will still be attending when I get back. Jordan will probably be heading off to Singapore or Thailand on his mission by the time I return, so I might not see him.

I love you all! Keep sharing the gospel with your friends!
