So it is that time of the week again.
|Newport Beach Temple|
Cove in New Port.
|Coast Highway driving by Laguna Beach|
Yes the area is gorgeous last couple days have been sunny from 65-85 with a breeze, basically "it's amazing" (Said in Penny voice from Happy Endings) hahaha!
Sending some things home; Clothes I don't need, my planner from MTC, ties, flip flops, and calendar from this area. I am really starting to get anoyed with this whole "Letters to mission home" thing. I am getting some of your letters that are dated the 7th, 8th or 9th of this month. Shouldn't take 10-12 days to get a letter from Utah&Nebraska. Got a letter from Aunt Sharon which was a real surprise! It was really cool to get a letter from her. Didnt think I would haha. She's great. It made my day! :)
|John Baptized Jesus by Immersion|
The investigators are picking up. It's weird to think I have been gone for 7 weeks (3-MTC 4-Mission). Feels like yesterday dad was caling the church a cult because he couldn't walk with me into the doors of the MTC haha :)
Funny Story (well kinda) Comitted a girl to baptism last Thursday. She didn't show for church on Sunday. Later found out that she wasn't at church is because she had a massive hang-over! So it's a work in progress, we might need to teach the Word of Wisdom!! WORK IS GETTING DONE HERE!
|This is a "Quad" |
(we call it that because it has
4 books of scripture in one)

I really am loving the mission. Its a hard life to get used to and I have to watch myself so much in everything i do, say, wear, and look like. Its teaching me a lot, even if it is only that I need to grow up and be an adult! hanging out with high school kids for the past year and did not need to grow up, so its something I have to do now out here in the mission field. Thanks so much for keeping this all in your prayers, I do need them. I really do love you all so much and I am learning a lot.
I have been, and am being humbled here ... A LOT! This is a learning process, and I learn for I must learn. I have to change my outlook so much or I will be held back a lot in my progression. Love you all be safe I keep you in my prayers you guys are the Bom dot com!!
Weekly thought: If anyone ever says "Before Earth we were in the Pre-Exsistence" or something like that call them to reptentence. We have always Exsisted we all need to call it the right name "Pre-Earth Life". Look in I believe the 93rd section of the Doctrine & Covenants and you will find were it talks about it.
Love you go and Read it, Ponder, Pray, Discuss :)
Also note additonal links to read along with this blog today;)
