The Whole Week Was A Good One

This week was a crazy week here in the mission field. The whole week was a good one. We didn't get the chance to get out and tract as much as needed because we were busy. We missed 5-7's 3 times in our area and then we only knock 4 times because we went on exchanges with the District Leader this week as well. I went to the Portland Temple with Davion and that was super cool. I will send pictures with that. The Temple was so pretty and it was cool to be able to perform baptisms for those who are deceased and need the blessings. Going to the Temple is usually the highlight of the week if you get the chance to go, but not this one.

Saturday was the best day of the week. We worked in the afternoon and then at 4:00 we went to the church to fill the Baptismal font. The Baptism for David was Saturday night. The Bishop performed the baptism and the small group that was there made all the difference in the world. It was awesome. We showed a video that is titled baptism by children of the church. I love how simple and profound children have the ability to share what they know. David's Mom who is not a member of the church also came to the Baptism and hopefully we will be able to talk with her more this upcoming week and answer some of the questions that she has and we can help her to feel of the spirit. She came to his confirmation on Sunday as well and asked a bunch of questions that we should be able to answer for her.

On the 4th of July we had a BBQ with a bunch of the missionaries in the zone and I made some Elk Burgers out of ground Elk that we had at our apartment. One of the perks of serving in the boonies is lots of people are big game hunters and they are willing to share so we get big game meats shared with us. We also cooked up a venison shoulder. Those were way good. So I had some interesting things out here in the mission field but not too weird. I love this country and I am so grateful for the freedoms that we share so that I can be here serving a mission and helping others to come unto the knowledge of our Savior and Redeemer. I hope you all have a fantastic week!!
