Weekly Update- 9/21/2015

Hey Everybody,

This week has been so spiritual. We had an investigator Steve Ohlau
pass his baptismal interview and we then went through the program with
him. He is so ready for baptism. We also had another investigator
commit to a baptismal day. Her name is Crystal Thomas. She committed
to October 24, 2015. She is so prepared and ready for baptism. Most of
her family is members already. If y'all could keep her in your prayers
she really needs them.

This week we got to go to the Snowflake Temple. I got to do the
endowments for Grandpa Kennedy. It was such a amazing experience.
Throughout the whole time I was feeling pretty good, but was not
feeling the spirit super strong. Then towards the end as we were
wraping up the session I felt just this huge overwhelming feeling of
happiness and love. I felt like he accepted it. It was probably one of
the times in my life that I felt the spirit so strong. I also had a
impression of how important family is and how they are always there
for you during the hard times and the good times. They love you
unconditionally. I know my Grandfather accept this work that was done
for him. The work is true.

One other amazing experience this week is we got to go to a fireside
for Travis Tuttle. He is one of the missionaries who got kidnapped in
Russia, which a movie was made about them called "The Saratov
Approach". It was such a awesome fireside. One of the things that I
really loved about it was how he applied during his talk his
experience to each of us. One thing that I really loved was how during
his experience he thought he was going to die. He had a mask over his
face and tape around his eyes. He heard a gun cocked then the trigger
pulled. He was thinking right before he died how much he loves his
families. He thought to himself that the only thing that really
matters in this life is the relationships we develop with our family,
friends and with God. That really touched me. So Mom and Dad and
Family just in case you didnt know. . . I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. Thanks for
all you do for me. I appreciate you making it possible for me to go on
 a mission.

Well I love you all. Keep being awesome.
