Fun New Ward, New Area, and a New Baptism Committment - 10/12/2015

Hello Everyone!!
I hope you all had a great week! Thank you so much for your emails. It's one of the best times of the week. I am glad that everyone has had a good week.
This week has been exciting because we were able to actually get out and make a difference in our area. We were able to meet some of the investigators and we were able to put someone on date for baptism for the 29th of November. His name is Charles, he is a funny guy who is really into music. The only sad thing was that we were not able to get anybody to church.
Yesterday was the first time we were able to meet the ward. It was really funny. This ward is a lot different then most wards. It's a lot like Ancostia but with a little bit more diversity. Haha it is funny because a lot of the members are former Baptist's so they are really loud.  They respond to greetings over the pulpit and they also give an amen during people's talks. It is quite amusing. At the end of sacrament meeting they have this time set aside to welcome visitors and new members, new move-ins, and new missionary's. So we had to introduce ourselves to the whole congregation. Haha they were very nice.

So the area I am I is pretty nice. I thought it was going to be like Anacostia but it is a lot nicer. We live right next to The Catholic University of America. And another Catholic college. We also live right by a giant Basilica it is pretty sweet
