Week 70 - Temple and Family History Work

Hey everyone! 

Don't have too much time today, but I'll give you the rundown of the week. Soooo, we took Andrew to a baptism this week. However, when we got there, they told us that they had pushed the baptism back an hour. So we decided to take Andrew to the family history Center that is in the basement of the Logan Tabernacle. He loved it! Within 15 minutes they had helped him find his grandparents and his great-grandparents. He was floored. He said he had grown up his whole life, and hadn't known their names (he is in his 50's) he set up another appointment with the family history center for Tuesday, where they will help him find more. We then took him to the baptism, which he loved. Then we took him to the temple, and walked him around the grounds. We brought him into the temple lobby to grab a brochure, and when we got back outside, we asked him how he felt and he said that when he was in the temple, he felt the spirit as strong as he ever had before, and just felt like he was in a holy place. It was awesome, I'll send pictures.

We have two Baptisms coming up this weekend, Devlyn and DJ. We are super excited for them. We have Andrew scheduled for the 12th and he is super excited!

We had to be in from 6-9 on Saturday due to the USU party "the Howl". It's a pretty riotous party with not very good costumes, so the mission allows us to stay inside as a zone.
We also have to be in from 6-9 tonight as well due to Halloween. So all day P-Day!

Anyway, it's been a great week! I'm about to lose wifi so I'm wrapping up. Love you all and have a great week!
