Pretty Good Week

Hey everybody!

This has been a pretty good week! This week I have been trying to be more obedient to the mission rules and it seems to have made the difference in how my week has turned out.  

We have a baptism happening this weekend for Jan Agardy. She is a really awesome lady who is very educated in the bible. She has a Degree in bible study from ASU and is a very spiritual lady! She has been investigating the church for over 2 years now and is finally going to get baptized! I will be the one baptizing her! I am so excited and so nervous! Hopefully the baptism service is just flawless.

This morning we hiked a huge mountain in Scottsdale called Camel back mountain. It was such a hard hike but we made it to the top. So worth it!

Also this week we had the opportunity to do exchanges with our zone leaders and it was such a fun experience. We went to an almost all Somalian apartment complex and got to meet some really cool people. All we did was just talk to everyone and then they led us to some really amazing people there. 

One really spiritual experience that I had on exchanges was when we were visiting this one guy named Cory. He is on probation from something he did in his past but is an amazing and spiritual guy. He is not a member but hopefully will be baptized really soon. We were talking about temples when he told us that for his honeymoon with his wife that they went all around the country to visit all the different temples. When he said he visited the Dallas Temple that caught my attention. I asked him how he liked the temple and he said that it was probably one of the most spiritual experiences that he had. He said that when they got there he had an feeling that he said "was drawing him towards the temple and telling him to just touch the outside of the temple." this caught my attention more because as a kid i had the same experience at the same temple. I felt an impression to touch the temple. The same thing that Corey felt too. Then Corey started to cry and said that he now has an huge desioure to go to the temple and do the work of salvation for his ancestors. I thought that that was amazing that we had the same experience at the same temple. 

Well I hope everyone is doing well and I hope to hear from you all!
