So totally got the Easter package. I have to admit that I haven't eaten too much of it yet. But Elder Doane has been lovin' it! Can't believe Canada and the U.S. are worried about the good ol' kinder eggs.
Also, thanks so much for taking care of all the going home stuff for me. It definitely makes me more at peace knowing I don't have to worry about it all right when I get off the plane. By the way, I sold the bike!
Other highlights of the week:
Today we went to the temple! They have another new video. Gotta love the temple!
On Sunday we had a baptismal interview for a couple we've been teaching for awhile and they're totally getting baptized next week! It is so exciting!
We've been having slammin' lessons with our members. Make sure you go out with the missionaries (even if the appointments are not super solid. You will see crazy awesome miracles).
Got under 28 min for my 4 mile.
Some of our members put on an original Hmong meal for Elder Ballard. Freshly killed boil chicken! He ate the head! Props to him!
Elder Swenson gave an awesome training on having hope. The gospel term hope refers to trusting in God's promises. He challenged all of us to find the specific promises God has made to us and cultivate greater hope/trust in them. He shared the example of Moses parting the sea. A promise was given long before the red sea incident that Moses would be able to command the waters (Moses 1:25). He also shared multiple other scriptures about how others accomplished miracles b/c of specific promises God had made to them earlier in the scriptural accounts. So definitely study up on the Lord's promises to you and the word "Hope."
Well, I love ya all lots! Thanks for all the updates and long letters. They are always appreciated! xoxo have a great week!
