On Monday, 168 Jamaicans flew in to come to the temple. 50 people are coming for the first time and getting their endowments. 20 families are getting sealed and the rest are coming back for the first time in 10 years. They all look pumped to be here and it was really cool to hear they knew who Sister Loveland is. They say she is doing good!
Last Friday we went to the University to go teach students. It feels more like a mission when we do this. We were doing good at the University. The people are so interested and commited to read!
While we were there, this crazy man (literally crazy) was screaming at the top of his lungs at us saying we don't believe in God and that we were Satan. He said more stuff but of course I didn't understand it. He also said he was the President of the University - so he IS insane. I thought it was funny! Then a man walks up to us while this guy is screaming and this man wants to go to the temple and was wondering how he could. We gave him numbers for him to call the missionaries to start lessons. He was excited to start. He also spoke English, which was like heaven cuz I haven't heard much English in weeks!
I wish we could have taught him! Since we aren't set apart for that mission we can't teach and baptize the investigators. I would have loved to see the man hopefully progress in the gospel!
I am finding a love for the Book of Mormon more and more everyday. I wish I had the desire to read them more when i was in High School! I now understand them more and know how important this book is. The stories are amazing! I have been reading in Alma about Alma and Amulek teaching the Zoramites. The wicked people don't listen to them and they are full of hatred. They bind Alma and Amulek and throw them in prison and they are to watch the people that believed their words be burned. It was terrible, but they both knew Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ were accepting them in their arms, for they are saved! I know that to be true! It makes me want to endure to the end. To be able to have an eternal family in the Celestial Kingdom is the best gift we have ever received!
Then next God gave Alma and Amulek power to break the Bands that were tied and then the prison walls fell! That's the coolest thing ever! I would go Bonkers if I saw that!!!
The RZR looks awesome! I'm not suprised Dad bought a street kit for it!
Mom, the blog looks good! And don't edit out all of the funny and inappropriate things! I still need to show my personality didn't go away.. haha!
My roommates are wondering and laughing about why Sydney sent me that sloth picture. Haha i thought it was funny!
I miss Jovi! I see lots of yorkies here and then I think of how dumb all of them are compared to Jovi!
E-mailing is only for 40 min. Not very much time and I type so fast to get everything done so I don't care if I have typos! (mom's note: yes, I fixed the typos. It takes me FOREVER!)
To make you happy, I want you to know I can't go to sleep without my retainer at night!
I heard I could call you at the airport but I'm not sure! That would be cool! Three more weeks and I'm outta here!
Love you all,
