Luke's last letter from the states dated September 21, 2013


So I'm going to Argentina in two days. It's crazy to think about it. I honestly thought it wouldn't come! But it's here! I can't wait to get down there!!! (: 

This week has been really really good. First things first. Leida (Lady). We asked her who she wanted to baptize her. She said me. I explained to her that it's better if someone from the branch baptizes her. She was cool with that, and she said she'd get back to us on our next lesson. So we showed up for our next lesson and she asked me to baptize her. I figured it was okay. So I said yes (: I got to perform the baptism on Saturday. She seemed so happy. I asked her how she felt afterwards. She said "New." Best answer I've ever heard! (: Pretty sweet! 

ON Sunday she went up to get confirmed, and the branch president asked her who she would like to confirm her. We had talked about the first counselor doing it before. But she pointed to me and said, "Him." So, then I had to figure out how to do a confirmation.(I've never done one before this moment) I did it, and afterwards I asked another Elder if I had done it right. He said perfect. So I was a little relieved. I felt bad that I did both the baptism and the confirmation. But it was what she wanted. So It's all good! (: 

On Saturday after the baptism My dad and Susan took my companion and I to Tucanos. I always walk outta there in pain. But it's sooo worth it!! (: It was pretty awesome!

I got a package from my mom this week. It was an airplane survival kit. It was pretty sick. My mom kinda rocks. And is hilarious!!!!

Well, I gotta go shopping now. I'm gonna buy all of one box of cereal to last me the day I have left here. Good stuff (:
Love you all!!

Elder Morgan

ps. I get a little trunky every time I see an airplane (: Just sayin
