Transfers and an Upcoming Baptism

Hey, y'all!

It's good to hear that things are going well and that the new convert trip to the Houston Temple went well.

I had a good past week and so far, this week has been good as well, although some changes have happened.  After 7 1/2 months in Eagle Run, Elder Royal finally got transferred.  He's in Lincoln with an Elder Johnson, who was actually the MTC companion of my former companion,  Elder Bywater.  I don't know Elder Johnson at all, but I've heard good things so I think that Elder Royal will have fun. 

My new companion is Elder Smith.  He came down from Sioux City and he only has this transfer left and then he's done.  He's a good worker and an amazing pianist.  He was a music major at BYU and he's already been a boon to the Ward. 

Our Christmas program was yesterday and it went really well.  One of the members of the choir sang an acapella rendition of, "O Holy Night" and it was great.  People actually started applauding in the chapel and Bishop got up at the end and lovingly reminded us of the importance of maintaining reverence in meetings.  We're singing again next Sunday so we're excited. 

Our investigator Judy Austin is set for baptism this coming Saturday!  We also set her tenant Kaylee and are planning on teaching a few more people this week. 

I love you all and I'm grateful for your continued thoughts and prayers.  We'll talk at cha next week!

Elder McMurray
