18 Months down

Hey fam,
Ah this was an awesome week. So I wasnt able to let you guys all know last week cuz we didnt know either that we were gonna have a baptism this weekend. That girl Sarahi that randomly showed up to church a while back, we taught her everything, and she accepted baptism with us and then she moved away from us the same day that she accepted baptsim... well we got the other missionaries that live close to her new place to go meet with her. She told them... the missionaries already taught me everything and I wanna get baptized on the 8th... we didnt tell her to say any of that. But the good news is that in her baptismal interview she asked if either me or Elder Nielsen could baptize her. So friday night before the baptism they told us they wanted to go to the baptism. As you can see in the pic I baptized her. She is so awesome and has a testimony of gold of the athority and everything... even though she doesnt have support from her direct family she has that testimony that will hold her up.
With all of the great news of last week, I just might have spoken too soon. We have lost a couple of them, and had to drop others but we still have 3 maybe 4 planned for the 22nd. They arent 100% or anything but were hoping so. Were gonna have an awesome family home evening with the bishop and stake president tonight with these 4 people so we will see if that gets em. Not a whole lot happened this week, just a whole lot of rain and very little new people to teach.
Were still holding up, my comp told me he has only this P-day and 3 more, so he is getting baggy on me and im not too excited to be with him as he dies in the mission. Ive having to push a little harder then before but were doin good.
I wish I had more time today and I realize this is prolly the shortest email in along time but were super busy today and were headed to a multi-zone activity in a stake center that has a basketbal court... not very common... so were stoked about that!!!
I love you all very much though and thanks so much for the pics and good news about Noel! Im dyin to be able to write him.
Keep us in your prayers this next week, we need these investigators to stick in there!!!
Love Elder Gardner
PS that other pic is of Jaimer, the one you guys talked to on monday through skype. He just happened to be at the baptism of Sarahi so he told me to take a pic and sent it home to you guys. He remembers me from when I started the mission in that zone... hes a good guy!!
