7 Nov 2016

Things this week have been exciting and pretty fun.

So last Sunday the week before this previous one, was the Star Valley temple dedication so that replaced our regular sacrament meeting. But it was an amazing experience. I've never had an opportunity to see a temple dedicated and it was awesome. The day before they had the cultural celebration and that was a pretty spiritual even too. They had like a closing number and they had this guy dressed up as captain Moroni waving around the Title of liberty. I was pretty jealous of that kid. I wish I could have been Captain Moroni.

Monday was pretty amazing too. We went to Soda Springs and the entire mission got to watch Cokeville Miracle. The movie itself was awesome. I haven't cried at a movie in a while. But the really cool part was that afterwards we got to have a fireside with Ron Hartley, the sheriff at the time of the Cokeville miracle. The reason president got us all together for Halloween is apparently Idaho has a problem with people dressing up like missionaries and vandalizing various things. So if all the missionaries are in one place we can’t get in trouble. Ha.

The rest of the week was just awesome. We had three nights in a row that we had several lessons so elder Graham got some good experience and he even had the opportunity to extend a baptismal invitation! We have had a lot of miracles this week and the Lord is definitely hastening his work!

This Sunday for testimony meeting a little 12 year old, bore his testimony that the church is true. But this was different than the typical 12 year old. He had just finished reading the Book of Mormon and had spent awhile praying and got discouraged because he hadn’t felt that he had received an answer. Then one day before he got on the bus, he said one more prayer and had an overwhelming witness of the truth of the church. It was awesome to see such a young kid who could seek so earnestly.

This church is awesome more than that it’s true! Even a 12 year old can know that!

Love you guys and I hope you have a good week!
