Hello!! Well this week has been all over the place. It has been great though.
as you know on Tuesday I got transferred to Bountiful Stone Creek
Stake. On Monday before that I went to the temple with the missionaries
that were about to go home. It was really cool. A long session though
because there were so many people! It was because a lot of people
stayed an extra day after conference to go to the temple. I liked going
to those temple trips before when I wasn't the one going home because I
got to say goodbye to a lot of great friends and previous companions.
But now being the one that is leaving soon it was different. It still
hasn't sunk in quite yet! On Tuesday the departing missionaries have a
special testimony meeting in the evening where they all invite member
families, past recent converts, and investigators and bear their
testimonies. Since I will be gone for the next one, I bore my testimony
at this one. It was a cool but kind of sad experience. The good part
was that I got to say that I am staying for another month or so! So
afterwards we went and taught a lesson to a less-active family! It was
great, but the meeting was so powerful. Hearing missionaries right
before they leave talk about what they learned and bear their
testimonies is something else.
Anyways, enough about that! After those couple rough days,
the week has been back to normal. Teaching and finding and doing the
Lord's work! We had a lot of cancelled appointments this week though.
It always happens. Im not sure how to get around it. But we are
meeting with some wonderful families that are progressing toward full
activity in the church. We are also teaching a few that are looking
toward baptism. I hope to see more success before I leave in helping
people participate in ordinances.
Well. Today we went hiking. Hiked up to the "V" in
Centerville. It wasn't a hard hike at all, but it was pretty fun. I'll
send a picture or two. Other than that we have just been moving
forward. Trying to help people make changes in their lives. Its a good
Love you all! Hope everything is going well and that you are all healthy and happy.
