First off, I have to share a story that happened last transfer I am
pretty sure I forgot to tell. In a lesson with Erica, she was sharing
an experience that happened to her at church. She was in a Sunday
School class, she was telling about how there was a super strong
spirit in the room and the physical light in the room got brighter.
When she accounted that story, I was pretty questionable, and kind of
shrugged it off. However, as we continued in our lesson, there was a
moment where the Spirit was strong, and I noticed that the physical
light bulbs in the ceiling suddenly were stronger and gave off more
light. It was not imaginable, it was fact. I know that the Spirit does
affect literal light.
Wednesday: I learned that the original 'Footloose' movie was filmed in
Lehi. I thought that was pretty cool, Kayla lives there now! haha
Thursday: Ehh, stuff.
Friday: Happy Halloween! So all of today consisted of me just going
down to Ogden, because there was a Technology meeting. Some new people
in the mission got called to be "Technology Instructors", who teach
people in the mission how to use the iPad efficiently and to teach
them the rules behind it. Also to try to encourage people to use it,
because not many missionaries actually use the Area Book App. Well I
would probably say 50/50. So now, rather me being called "Media
Specialist" I am now called, "Technology Assistant" or "TA" for short.
Haha. I will attach a picture that writes out what I do. Not too
Then afterwards we had a Halloween party for the Zone! We watched 17
Miracles, and get this, Do you know that handicapped little guy in the
movie? He is the grandson of one of our senior couples in my district!
I also ate in the house that he grew up in as a child :)
Saturday: A five year old's prayer, "Dear Heavenly Father, thanks for
these guys, help them come back. They are really cool..." Haha, it was
We had Stake Conference "Adult Session", was the best Stake Conference
session I have ever been in, we had Bishop Davies, whom I am not
really sure like what position he is in now, but he was the one who
helped picked the temple grounds when President Gordon B. Hinckley
announced temples. He had so many good stories. Overall, the spirit
was super strong, so much so that I had chills several times, and it
felt thick in the room. To top it off, we ended with the song, "Nearer
my God to Thee". Dang was the spirit so strong, gave me wet eyes.
There were moments when the spirit brought back to my remembrance
experiences I have had in the temple.
Sunday: The Sunday Session of Stake Conference wasn't nearly as good,
which is sad, because none of our investigators went to the Saturday,
but all of them went to the Sunday. It was still good, but just not as good. but yeah, I was
surprised how many investigators came! Well we weren't able to find
two new investigators this week, we prayed every day for it, and tried
our very best, but sometimes we don't get what we want, even if it is
Monday: Today was a great day! We found high potential investigators,
that actually don't seem like their parents would hold them back from
being baptized! That seems to be the biggest concern of people here in
Tremonton. We had a lesson today with a 60 year old, and he knows that
this church is true, he told us he knows that Joseph Smith is a
prophet, however, he can't get baptized, because he promised his Mom
he would never join the church as long as she lived. Like really?????
49 degrees is how it has been for a few days, but 49 is colder in GA than it is here, that is for sure. That is cool that you got to go to the game, They BYU Football game especially for free! It hasn't snowed here yet, well kinda, up in the mountains it snowed, but not down here, I think I saw some flurries. Maybe haha. Good job feeding the missionaries! You guys are working out good! I work out every morning, however, the workout itself is kinda lame... I need to repent. We watched the movie 17 miracles! It was really fun, we also had a fire going outside, I played with the Dogs, one of them wanted to race me! Game on!!! Contacts lenses are going strong, may have enough for my mission :P haha.
So I am bad, I forgot to take pictures of the apartment. I'm sorry, I am a bad son.
I got a picture with a super awesome huge dog!
