Exchanges for baptism (Amik)

The stake had a helping hands activity on Saturday. So we painted a metal fence going around a park.  The picture (below) was taken about two and a half hours in when they decided to get all the missionaries rounded up and have them go paint the pool wall.

The possum was seen when we were going around looking though the potential investigators that looked profitable.   When we were walking back one of the neighbors told us to "watch out for that possum." It was just a few feet In front of us being completely still.

Anyway, during the Saturday Helping Hands activity, Melissa, the new investigator, came with Aaron, the rm classmate, and helped do the service for all four hours and then we had a lesson afterwards covering the Plan of Salvation.  We gave her the tithing pamphlet, since she wanted it.  However,  Aaron, has already taught her a lot. She had already gone over the Plan of Salvation and had done all the additional study in the back of it before SaturdayShe also has officially started to read the Book of Mormon Friday night, but has been reading sections of it already as well as the pamphlets and has watched the movie "How rare a possession".  Anyway
she is doing great.  Yesterday she went to the YSA ward since Aaron had a talk.  So she is already one of our most progressing investigators.  

Also, later on that Saturday  Elder Welker went up to the Bloomington ward for a baptism.  He served in the north area of the ward, while I served in the south.  While he was gone I went on team ups with an eighteen year old young man from the ward named Kasden.   He is going to start his mission papers soon and wants to leave by the end of the year.  We went to teach an investigator named Cynthia.  We read 3 Nephi 19 with her , since that is where she was at and committed her to baptism. She is reading the Book of Mormon day and night, but hasn't been able to come to church since she has been asleep when ever her ride shows up.   Also, Sunday night we went had another young man come out with us and we went to teach another investigator.  It went well.  We read 3 Nephi 11 and talked about the importance given to the things that Jesus talks about with the order of the topics showing the importance.
