A day in the life of Elder Bullock. Wake up, pray, exercise, shower and eat. Personal study and companionship study. Leave flat and bike 15k to area. Start knocking doors for 4 hours. 20 doors slammed, 8 people swearing and yelling, 31 people not interested, 1 person trying to tear us down, 1 person kind of interested.

Woohoo! Michelle is baptized! It was an awesome experience. I was very fortunate to be able to help bring another soul unto Christ. The Holy Ghost was so powerful while troubles nothing could stop us from baptizing! The baptismal dress went missing, the TV remote for our video presentation was locked up and the font overflowed but everything still went well after dealing with those problems.

What an incredible day. I had the amazing opportunity to complete the baptismal ordinance with confirming Michelle a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and giving her the Gift of the Holy Ghost. The spirit was so strongly felt; I could barely speak to give the blessing. I was literally a gateway to Heaven as I gave her the blessing. I felt the Holy Ghost pass through my chest to my fingers. I cannot even begin to describe the immense joy that I felt as I did the same things Christ him self have done.
