I can't believe that I am no longer a teenager. Time has flown by so fast. I had such an awesome Birthday. I started off my day with a awesome gift from my companion. He made me a giant poster that said, ¨Happy Birthday Elder Thorpe.¨ I was super stoked about that. Later we went to the curch for our baptism! I was super happy to be able to have a baptism on my birthday! It was quite an interesting baptism, Manuela (our investigator) had quite a bit of fear of baptism. They tried to baptize her about 11 times but either her legs kept popping up or her head wouldn't go all the way down. So I went and changed to help with the baptism. So Elder Borgel baptized her and I kept her legs down so they wouldnt pop up. Afterward we all celebrated my birthday with Cake and Juice! haha It was such an awesome day. I was just glad I could help another daughter of God get through the door that we must enter!
Thank you all for all the birthday wishes! You all are amazing and I miss you all!
Love Elder Thorpe
