Baptism this week

Oi! Sorry this week will probably be short we just got done playing
some soccer as a zone.
I will have to buy some things and send you all a new package sometime
here soon. But yes we do have pears. We have every fruit that we
have in Utah besides blackberries and lemons. We can´t get peanut
butter here except for the mall I guess, but we cant enter malls. I
could probably make pancake mix, but we don’t have maple syrup.
Clothing is doing good and everything has been in one piece. Only
thing maybe rootbeer flavoring? haha I will think and let you know.
I haven´t actually met any Sisters in the misson yet.  It is starting and should continue to get cooler as fall comes, which is really really good. haha.
Tell Jordan Congrats and also Ashley for the Pageant!!

So we finally had a Baptism last Saturday, a man who is married with a kid and has known the church for almost 10 years. We worked with him and he finally got his answer. The baptism went really well, the ward helped out a lot. Our Bishop and
President Lima have been stressing a lot of real growth where converts
remain and less active members return to church. There have been lots
of baptisms the past few years but almost no real growth, so we are
trying to change that. We are going to still work with him and his
family alot .

We have a 13 year old boy and a 15 year old girl who look very promising. They both like church and the members a lot so we will see what happens with them. Things are definitely tons tons easier now that we are having the members helping us out with everything.  Anyways I am doing great and hope that you are all healthy and safe! Thanks a billion for the love and support. I have really realized how
much you guys have impacted my life for the better. Love you guys
tons and tons! Love, Elder Connor Ottosen
