A Great Experience

Dear Family & Friends:

Our baptism on Sunday went great! It was very spiritual and there were lots of people that came. I was able to baptize Johnny, which was a great experience.
We also went fishing for Memorial Day, which was a ton of fun. My companion got super super sun burned and is bright red today! This week has been pretty awesome. We have been having lots and lots of thunderstorms lately. Last night we couldn't sleep it was so loud. It’s amazing how bad the drainage system in Texas is. There aren't even any gutters on the streets, so everything just floods like crazy!
We also received a phone call from some missionaries up in Illinois. They ran into one of our former investigators and she was excited that she was able to find the church up there and so they were calling for information on what we had taught her. It was great to be able to hear what had happened to her, because last we heard, she was moving to Portland and then the elders in Portland said she moved up north somewhere!
This is Elder Bugg’s last full week. He goes to McAllen next Wednesday and then will tour around the mission for a couple of days before going back to Iowa. It will be hard to see him go. We have had a lot of successes together. In my interview President Miller asked me if I was ready to get any companion that the Lord was going to send me. It will be interesting to see what happens next week at transfers! I'll try and send some pictures home this week sometime.

Love to all, Elder Carreon
