We took them to the temple so that we could give them a tour and they loved it. Shirley was so excited the entire week to come and see it. She had a really great experience. It was nice to see the temple and to walk around it. I've never been inside it, but I could still feel the Spirit there outside.
We don't ever get to go to the temple and so I was glad that I could come and see it for the second time ever. A year ago when I first came out we were able to tour the outside of it, and I haven't seen it since. It was a really great experience.
Rashaun also finally picked a day to get baptized! It's set for the 21st of this month. Elder Bassett and I are excited to see it finally happen!
This next week should be great too. We did our weekly planning session differently this week and now we have at least 3 set appointments every day this week! It's going great.
Elder Huntsman and I had a good time on our exchange together. We had it on our year mark and it was really fun to hang out with him and work with him.
My interview with President Turner went great. We talked about my companionship and about what a successful missionary is. He said something about transfers and how he wants to keep us in places as long as he can, but with all of the missionaries going home, he said he can't do that for awhile. He said that he doesn't know if I'm staying or leaving but he mentioned it. One really awesome thing was that we were told by President that we can read books that strengthen our testimony, and help us do missionary work better etc after our studies are over when we have down time. I bought Parley P Pratt's autobiography at the bookstore next to the temple and it's awesome!
If you have any books you would want me to read that are in that area, I would love to see them. I definitely want to read the Infinite Atonement so if you have that can you send it?
I loved the package! I ate all of those M&M's so fast haha. The story about the camel was really awesome too. It was really inspirational.
I hope Troy is okay. Tell him that I hope he gets well soon!
Sorry I'm not talking much today. I'm really tired haha.
I hope everyone had an awesome week!

Brother Stacey from the Lexington Ward sent me the photos of them having dinner at their house. I received the one of Shirley and Rashaun at the temple from Sister DaRosa, also from the ward. Then the temple pictures were taken by Sean. So grateful for church members who are so kind and considerate to send me these photos of my favorite missionary!
