Tabitha’s Baptism! (from Caroline’s 9-29-14 email)

We got the pizza for my one year mark!!! That was so nice of you Mom! And SO fun! Sorry I’m emailing so late today, we got to have a special missionary screening of “Meet the Mormons” this morning. And I got your post cards!! This is so fun 🙂 I was so worried that the CD wouldn’t make it in time! I’m so relieved that you got it and get to listen to it! Did you listen to it with Liesa? What is your favorite song? Tell everyone I love them!

 

Tabitha’s baptism was amazing! We ended up not being able to get someone to lead the music, or play the piano, so we ended up doing that ourselves, but that was no problem.  I’m so glad it worked out and the important thing is that she joined the fold of God, and her children are now ‘children of record’ and will likely be baptized. She was so solid and ready to be baptized. She is so sweet, and is already asking what her first calling will be. I am truly so happy for her! That happiness is all that matters.

We also had an activity before the General Women’s Meeting, and Sister Rollins and I were in charge of a little candy photo-booth area. Seriously so cute! And so fun! I have no idea where they got the giant ribbons from. Lots of props! Tons of fun! Plus the meeting was AMAZING! It’s so weird that the meetings start so late out here… conference starts at noon instead of 10! It makes a big difference as a missionary.

At the Virginia Day of Service, our job was to sit and listen to this band, because they were the last ones and no one was really there anymore, so they needed people to support them. They were pretty good! But still the easiest service I have ever done.

Then a member took us to Red Lobster, so here’s a picture of a lobster!

And the frogs– one night we were tracting, then all of a sudden: FROGS EVERYWHERE. Good thing Sister Rollins had a flashlight, because it was completely dark, and we would have squished some frogs if we couldn’t see. They weren’t afraid of us in the slightest, but just sat on the sidewalk!

Just in-case you forgot, Virginia has the most beautiful sunsets.
