I guess I didn't have my camera all week. It rained too hard to be able to take many pictures. I hate the rain. It is no fun. It is like intense working in the rain. I loved the judgement day billboards and the baptist church signs all over that said maybe it will end 5/21..... but it didn't. South Carolina is crazy.

We said to Dane you will be an awesome trainer. He said - "I hope I am an awesome trainer. I am working really hard. We are going to baptize 8 people in the next 6 weeks."
JUDGEMENT DAY DIDN'T HAPPEN! I got asked over 50 times if it was really going to happen and all I said was NO, and if it doesn't will you get baptized into our church? Super fun week!! I got a call this week from President McConkie and he told me I am training a new missionary. I am so excited for that! It is getting really hot in South Carolina, the temperature the other day was 103 and 80 percent humidity. They say it gets worse I just don't see how it can. You walk outside and you are sweating everywhere. It is okay though because everyone here is sweaty and smelly, it is just so hot that people don't even care. It is about to get a lot warmer. I hope everyone is doing good. Talk to you next week. Shoot me an e-mail or letter if you have time. I love mail! Make sure to read the BOOK OF MORMON daily!!

Here are some pictures of the bike trail along the river, Columbia, and the drooping fan. It has been a good week! I am almost to my 6 month mark and my greenie is about to rub off.... I can't wait. I am super tired all the time and I am now used to the missionary routine. Up at 6 a.m. to prepare and study, out the door from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eat, sleep and repeat.

This is West Columbia, the fan shows how hot it gets in the summer it makes the fans DROOP! This baptism is the third in the last 5 years. They are a struggling ward and area. It is not fun to argue with the Bishop just to let us baptize. On average they only get 75 people to church and there are over 400 members in the area. It is kind of crazy, but it is not my fault so I am working my best to bring them back and baptize the HECK out of this area. This was my companions first baptism, he was pretty excited. He has been out 6 weeks less than I have. He loves biking..... me not so much! I love it in South Carolina and know it is where I need to be. I have seen so many miracles and I know the Lord is blessing me. I love you all have a great week.
