8 Months Mark and First Baptism!! WOOT WOOT!!
Hi I am doing grrrreat!!! Sounds like everyone is doing fine!!! I myself perfect as usual! I have been trying to say thank you and all that jazz as much as possible but sometimes it gets really hard!!! Hearing all of you doing all that fun stuff in St. George makes me excited to go down there for school!!! BUT PLEASE BE SAFE ON ANGELS LANDING!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Temple was amazing! I seriously love going there all the time! Just the peace and tranquility that it provides. It's like exactly how I feel our journey really is. We go through life learn all these things and then practice all these things we learn. During the whole time you are nervous you are doing the right things. Then it's time to return and you get super nervous! Then you make it through. Instantly it's just a feeling of relief. Like literally the weight of life and the test is finally lifted off and you can relax. That's just how I feel the celestial room is. It is a small glimpse of what our life after this can become!!! I LOVE IT!!!!
The Baptism went really well it was AMAZING!!! It's good to finally have a baptism or two under my belt. It makes me feel like I can make a difference in the world. But lemme tell you, organizing baptisms is the most stressful thing I have ever had to do! Probably worse than planning any school dance/event or something!! Cause you have to plan for adults to help .. but it's the missionaries job. You know??? But it worked out in the end!!! We needed to make it as spiritual as possible for the parents too, so we just prayed and did what we felt was necessary. The Spirit was so strong that the mom was crying and it was just a beautiful moment!!! AHHH I just love being out here. I can't believe I've already been out 8 months!!!
So I served in East Oakland for a day. HOLY CRAP!!!! FUNNEST TIME EVER!!! I was literally like the only white guy walking around! HAHA!!! So the weird stick thing actually protection from pit bulls that are inside peoples fences!!!! The other picture is of the TURN-UP BUS!!! ;) Last picture is of the two sisters we baptized!! S*** and ****!! WOOT WOOT!!!!
Sad picture in San Lorenzo :(
