Sweater weather and the Oregon rain!

Yeah, it's been a bit chilly here, but I haven't had time to think about it much! We have been really busy and its been nuts.
We committed 12 people to baptism this last week and they are gonna be baptized on the 30th! One of them is a huge family of 7 and they are all excited to be baptized! I am really stoked! We also had 15 investigators at church. So it was way cool.  So that was, "Oh yeah baby!" We be doin' work!
Our baptism did go through this Saturday. It was very spiritual and the family and the ward were really excited about it, especially his family. They have been waiting so long for him to get baptized. They loved it! Other than that we have been just really been busy with appointments.

I got a flat tire on Thursday so i had to walk my bike to the shop and pay 5 bucks for a new tire. We have met alot of crazy people. I can't help but laugh at some of the people these days! Ha ha! It's so funny what people say sometimes.

The zone at Newport Beach for P-day!
The Vaughn family, the family of 7 we're teaching, started an egg fight in their house! They are crazy. It was so funny! They were just throwing eggs everywhere. I have it on camera! And Alex the 5 year old was running around naked falling over the egg yokes and was covered in egg shells. Then he went in the bathroom and started smashing tomatoes on the ground. He is crazy. The house is outta control! Haha! We're eating there tonight and teaching a lesson :) so hopefully no eggs will interfer with the lesson. Hahah!

A moment of inspiration along the Oregon coast.
We're going to Lincoln City next P-day for the big Nike outlet! Everything there is like 70 percent off so I am way stoked to see what all the jazz is about in Lincoln City! Today we are playing football inside of Reser Stadium (Oregon State University) so that will be a blast!
I hope all is well. And yes people in Oregon are going crazy because Oregon is ranked number one now. Haha! Love you and hope you have a great week! :)
