|Amber waves of grain in La Grande|
I don't have a ton of time this week. So I may not be writing a novel. But I will write as much as I can! We are in Enterprise right now at Bishop Lowes house! We get to spend p-day up here because it's Ranzie's baptism later tonight. So we are going to go on the tram finally and visit people I absolutely love! I am so excited! I couldn't go to sleep last night, and I woke up 10 minutes before the alarm went off because I was so excited =) Felt like going to disneyland. When we were almost here I told Sister M that this is probably what going home feels like. I was just super super excited. haha =) I love it here!!! More than anything!
So it was a crazy week. But this coming week is going to be even more crazy! Kaydon had his interview for baptism, then we had a fun district meeting. Getting there was exciting.... So we went to our church to copy some music that Sister Duncan wanted. And on the way out I realized that I left the keys in the locked library. So we were stuck in the church! Our car was locked and the phone was in it. Haha. We had like 10 minutes till the meeting started. Sister M freaked out a little bit. We went over the phone and luckily there was a ward directory sitting there. So we called a bunch of people to see if they had keys. We finally got someone =) It was so funny. I thought it was exciting. Sister M didn't think so. haha! We made it to district meeting about 30 minutes late. And no one even called us to see if we were okay! What? common:P haha. Later I wasn't feeling very good, so we stayed inside for a while so I could sleep.
After the baptisms we had dinner at Sarah's. She invited a member! So that was cool. It sounds like she is making changes in her life that we didn't know. We aren't even really doing anything. She can just feel the spirit when we come. She really doesn't like organized religion, so we don't talk much religion there. Though we do try to sneak some in. We were thinking that it wasn't doing anything but using up our time. But it sounds like it is helping her a lot! I love it when that happens =) You influence people even when you don't think you are!
And now today!! It's like a mini summer vacation! Long over due. Haha. we are so excited! I've said that multiple times now haven't I. haha. I am super duper excited =) had butter flies in my stomach the whole drive up here. =) Anywho... that was my crazy week.... but just wait till you hear about next week. We are already almost booked with appointments and such. So it will be an adventrue =) I love adventures. They are so great.
So.... I hope you all have a fantabulous week! I have gained a testimony of baptism while on my mission. My covenants are much more meaningful to me now that I've seen that ordinance done so many times. I now know that it is the one and only gate into Eternal life. if we are baptized and keep those covenants we made our whole life we can live forever with our Heavenly Father, and our families. I am so so so blessed to have that knowledge! I hope I can share that with everyone else I come in contact with the rest of my life!
Love you all!
