I know the Temple is the House of the Lord

So to start out this week, it has been quite the adventure! First off i want to say It is amazing being able to see the Lord work with his Children. So has we have been working with Nikki and Keith is has been so great being able to see the growth they have made from reading the Book of Mormon with them. Not to long ago they talked to us about going to church and OH!!! how happy I was, I know the Spirit really is working with them! 

So we have this awesome investigator named Janette! She is a wonderful Jesus love'n lady. So I am being able to see her because she has such a wonderful understanding that God is literally our Father in Heaven and that he is literally her father. And to top off how awesome Janette is she is studying out of the Book of Mormon. She doesn't just read it but she is studying it along side with the Bible and really gaining a testimony of its truth and divinity. It really is just wonderful!

Also on another bright note this week, our Investigator Steve is slowly but surely working on a getting a baptismal date. Currently at this time life is really hectic for him, but in our last lesson he shared with us how he knew it was true and that he felt so bad that the last few months he had been neglecting his faith and wants to start back up again. So that is a miracle in my eyes right now because when I first got here in Hamilton, Steve would just say he wasn't ready but now he has explains that it wont be tomorrow but it will be soon.

Also this week was another week with lots of Hay! But on the bright side of it all it is the last time we are doing hay because Hay season is over up here. On Friday we stacked 4 hay wagons that had about 120 hay bells on each wagon so it was lots of fun. Plus in the mist of stacking the hay bells I fell through some and i was rocking the splits as one leg was in between hay stacks and the other was on top. HAHA lots of fun and lots of laughs when that happened. But I got the Boys laughing when we were stacking hay because we started a race of who could hand the bales faster to Sister Loveland and dang those boys were going so fast i couldn't keep up with them. But it was lots of fun and  I sure am going to miss this family!

As well as this week we had to move Lacey's baptismal date to possible November 5th. And i know that Lacey really does know this Gospel is true because Sunday the 9th she got up all by herself and shared her testimony. The spirit was so strong and both Sister Rodriguez and I were crying, because there really is nothing sweeter then hearing the people you love share how they know the Restored Gospel to be true.

Finally this week, we were blessed in being able to go to the temple!!!!!! It really is wonderful being able to enter the House of the Lord!!!! We went with a Returned Less Active, Chris Moglia. She is super sweet. It was such a wonderful opportunity for me to be able to be there with her. While we were at the temple the spirit was so strong and I never thought i was going to miss the temple as much as i did. But i am grateful that i am blessed to live in a area where there is a temple so close by at home.

I love being a missionary and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have everyday to go out and proclaim the Gospel to all of Gods children. D&C 4:2-5, " Therefore,O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mid, and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day. Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work;  For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul; And faith, hope, charity and love, with a eye singled to the glory of God, qualify him for the work."
