Judith's baptism

Hey Family,
Lol mom i know my emails are pretty small huh!? I'm sorry, ill try and do better.
Happy Birthday Malia...=)
well this last week was pretty awesome. we had a baptism... whoo hoo.... its pretty interesting how it happened.  about 2 weeks ago Elder Cruz and I started teaching the wife of a less active member. her name is Judith and the members name is Daniel. we taught Judith the restoration and we left her to pray to know if it was true. she did and told us she felt a sense of peace when she prayed and asked. she then accepted a goal to be baptized on the 10th of April, which we were really excited about.. but we lost contact with her because she started to work and a couple of other things. so a week and a half passed and on Friday i was on divisions with Elder Jenkins a District leader in the Zone and it was about 9 at night and i had the feeling we should go visit Judith and see if she was home... we got there and started talking then she said, this Sunday i cant get baptized because i have to work in the afternoon but how about tomorrow... ha ha Elder Jenkins and I looked at each other saying sure that would be alright.... so she was baptized Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. her husband was able to baptize her. they now have a goal to get sealed in the temple in a year. its just crazy how prepared she was, my companion and I only taught her 2 lessons. i truly know that there are many people just like Judith who are ready to receive this gospel. We as members just have to do our part and find them...
oh also pretty crazy, while walking to the church to fill up the baptismal font Saturday, someone threw a grenade in a parking lot in the marketplace. me and my companion arrived 5 minutes after it happened. it was like a scene out of an action movie. there was a man badly injured and a crater in the ground and broken glass everywhere.  it was truly a sad sight to see, you could sense the fear that everyone had. i wasn't too scared though, i felt a sense of peace. and that's why its so important that we share this gospel, so that everyone else can share this peace and joy that we members have...
on another note i am way excited to see all of you in 4 short weeks.... =) and mom that sounds good about the get together Monday...=) and is the stake still having all the returned missionaries talk in each ward??
well i better go and mom i hope this was a little bit more than last time...haha
Love you all,
Elder Kingston
