A baptism on the horizon

Hey Family,
   We are expecting to get ipads by the end of the year. I am super pumped! They would be so useful! For example we would be talking to someone and say " and we believe that there is a prophet on this earth today." and they usually say "oh really who is this guy and why have I not heard of him?" Then we would whip out our iPads and show a sick Mormon message about him and they would be like "Oh shoot maybe there is something more to this..." instead of them Asking sarcastic questions and not getting a fit response. For that and many other reasons ipads would be splendid. However I will not read the scriptures on them. Don't ask me why I just won't haha.
   So update on the work we have been finding a ton of new people to teach, which is awesome but even better than that is that one of them is getting baptized in two weeks! His name is Flavio and we have been teaching for a little less than a month. He is the boyfriend of Bailey who just got called to serve in the temple square mission. We kept on pestering her and her family to invite us over to dinner with him and they finally broke down and did it. We taught the restoration and at the end of the lesson invited him to be baptized and he said yes. I wish you could have seen the look on everyone's face when he said yes. Her whole family was shocked, it reminded me when the missionaries invited Sydney to be baptized haha.
   Ever since then though everything has gone almost to easy. When someone has been prepared for the last 5 years to be taught the teaching goes pretty smoothly. He is going to be baptized on September 13th and I am super excited for him. Now we just got to get him on a mission ;)

   Sounds like everything is good at home! I pray for you guys daily Stay strong and carry on love -Elder Wagner
