A wonderful Temple experience 6/21/2015

Going to the Temple
So this week went okay.. We are still having the hardest time finding people to teach and are in the same situation as last week. Two pluses for this week. One: On Tuesday we took all of the Recent converts and some young men and young women to the Temple. We were able to go and be witnesses for the baptisms. It was a wonderful experience to see those who we taught enter the Temple for their first time. Kofe shared with us that she felt so close to Christ she never wanted to leave. It was a great experience for us all. Two: We taught Io'apa again and He said he is going to quit smoking. He has been having a really hard time but he has had it and we all pray this time he can do it. We also taught a less-active Saturday night and she shared a few things with us and we were able to help her out a bit. We promised her that if she prays and goes to church on Sunday she will get her answer. So on Sunday we were looking for her and she came and while we were blessing the sacrament she looked at us and I could tell she got an answer. It was a really cool experience. I've been trying to look for small ways to serve others. Last week a lady bought some stuff at the store and I took it to her car for her. Then earlier today at the store a few things had fallen over and I picked them up and put them back. The point is, is that service can be found anywhere you just have to plan for unplanned service. It will come up!

 That's pretty much it for now.. Sorry it's not much!

 I love you!!
