Week 6 in Lami Finished!
So this week we also had Zone conference, where all the missionaries in the zone meet at the mission home and the Mission President teaches us. It happens like 3 times a year. It was cool! He talked a lot about the temple. It's going to be SO exciting. If you guys get the chance, find a way to watch it. It'll basically be like the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Way cool. They haven't told us how, but they said that us missionaries are going to be doing something in it near the end.... So I'm getting so stoked! Also, he told us that they're opening up a new island for a pair of missionaries to go to in December. It's called Rotuma, they have their own language and everything. Who knows, maybe I'll serve there one day. :)
We also have a baptism this ! I'm SO excited. It's a lady and 2 of her kids. They are the best! I'll tell you about it and send pictures next week. I'm stoked!!
Ok, so this week during church, a white guy from Logan, Utah that's working on the temple bore his testimony in church. It was really cool and I want to share something he said. He talked about being Holy. To REMEMBER and HONOR the things that are holy. These are the things that are called holy in the Bible:
-the Holy Order of Matrimony
This was a good reminder for me. There are some things that Heavenly Father has given us that we must treat with honor and holiness. My favorite is the Holy Order of Matrimony. Because of what happens in the temple, I can be with my future wife for time and all eternity. Not only that, but I can be with ALL that I love and am sealed to for time and all eternity. I love my family more than anything in this world, and am so grateful for the knowledge that I have that I can be with them forever.
I love being a missionary. I have amazing experiences every single day. I learn and learn and learn. I love this gospel so much. Thank you everyone for the emails and well-wishes! It means so much to me! I love you all so much. Until next week. Keep on keepin' on! Au lomani kemuni!
