Missionary Testimonies & A Baptism

This morning I got into the shower, only to find that the water was gone and had not recharged yet. {One of the little inconveniences of not being at home!} I took a quick brief shower in the few drops that were coming out.  I could never get the temperature regulated right, and some part of the shower was cold and part of it was hot. I guess I'll have a positive attitude and say that at least I had water for a shower.

I rode with Wes and Alyssa to church in Addis and listened to the missionaries speak today.  The first speaker was an Elder from Debre Zeyit that had just received his call.  He bore a strong testimony of the gospel and the guidance of the Spirit.  I really enjoy church here.  It is simple, yet very powerful.  After the meeting there was another baptism. Ashagere performed the baptism, and this is the second baptism that he has performed that I have been able to attend.  He was also ordained to the Melchizedek priesthood last week at the organization of the District.  It is so exciting for me to see his progress.  He came to church as an investigator the first Sunday that I was in Ethiopia.  I met him then and had talked with him and his friend at length about the gospel.  The Spirit strongly bore witness of the truth of the gospel as we talked.  It is great to see the spiritual progress that he has made. It is a great way to finish off a successful trip to this beautiful country.
