being rebellious. We had zone conference yesterday and so our
preparation day was moved to today. Do you know what that means? I GOT
TO GO TO THE TEMPLE THIS MORNING! The temple is a place like no other.
We went to the Jordan River temple as a zone. It was AWESOME! If you
haven't been to the temple in awhile, PLEASE GO. God is waiting to
So this week was good except for the fact that I'm sick. All I want to
do is get cold medicine and orange juice and hot chocolate and bundle
up in my bed. But I am a missionary and missionaries don't do that :)
I am so blessed to be on this mission and to have met all the people I
have and to have the opportunity every day to grow my relationship
with my Heavenly Father. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints! LOVE IT.
L**** is fabulous and she is just like a grandma to us. We love her.
She has agreed to come to church with us but we have yet to find a
Sunday that is good for her. I can feel how much God loves her and
wants to bless her but she has to have faith enough to get her booty
to church first!
G***** is apparently a zen-Buddhist. He is not what we expected. He
asked A LOT of questions about the church and asked our views on women
not having the priesthood. Let's just say it was not the lesson that
Sister Unrast and I had planned but we have an appointment to go back
and have another lesson with him and hopefully we'll be able to talk
about the restoration! :)
B*** is a super star! He makes things too easy on us. He asks for
scriptures to read throughout the week. But he has yet to make it a
priority to be at church. I wish he understood the importance of
partaking the sacrament and starting every week by renewing your
baptismal covenants...that being said I think I know what his next
lesson will be!! Hahahaa.
The P*****s make every week a little better! I love them. But...they
need to go to church too! hahaaa.
I am so blessed to be able to serve here and be with Sister Unrast. I
am so blessed to have faith in my savior Jesus Christ and see how his
life changes mine. I hope everyone has a rockin week and comes a
little bit closer to Heavenly Father.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!

He made pancakes again this week and he found out I had a truck back
