Ok, where to begin this week... well it consisted of me going on 3 exchanges, for reals this whole Sister Training Leader thing is harder than I expected, but still it's good!!

Monday: Well since Hna. S and I were going to the temple on Friday we had to work on our P-day after emailing... so guess what?! We found a NEW INVESTIGATOR in my area (since we covered both for the few hours of P-day). I am excited to teach her again tomorrow :) she has a genuine heart, and this gospel will totally help her!! It can help EVERYONE!!!

Tuesday: dinner with an awesome family, who are working with a family and going to invite them to church soon!!! AAAHHH Yes, MIRACLES!!! Pray for this family if you have a chance. I hope they come to church and want to meet with us!!

Wednesday: Service and zone meeting!! Pretty good day :) We had a lesson with an investigator, and taught him the Plan of Salvation. Drove to Fort Collins to start an exchange with a sister!

Thursday: Exchange with Sister C! She was in my MTC district so it was fun to be together again. We have never served near each other so it was cool. She had been on exchanges to my ward before so it was funny!

Friday: Exchange with Hna. S so we could go to the TEMPLE!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERY SINGLE PERSON NEEDS TO GO TO THE TEMPLE!!!!!!   EVERY SINGLE PERSON, I REPEAT, EVERYONE NEEDS THE TEMPLE IN THEIR LIFE!!!!! I felt so much love from my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. The temple truly is the place to be, it's incredible! The Spirit there is so strong, and I want to go everyday.... It was weird and kind of fun to go outside the mission boundaries (we are only allowed to do that to go to the temple). It was weird to go to a big city too... I miss the small town feature... but this was like going to Sacramento, so it wasn't too foreign, just foreign because it has been so long. But the temple, now that is not foreign!!! We went to the Cheesecake Factory afterward and Deseret Book, it was great!! It was our P-day, so all good!!

Saturday: We got to go to a baptism for an 8 year old boy in our ward, then we went and helped build a house for Habitat for Humanity! Dad, thanks for making me work/build/remodel houses. Even though I didn't do much/complained a lot I am really appreciative of it! Working definitely does build character! haha We got to put dry wall up on the ceiling and on the walls for a closet, pretty legit!!! Well, after I had dust all over me and we were done for the day we went home and I showered. then it was time for dinner... WITH THE L family!!! Well, my companion and I get there... no one is there. Hna. S and S were going to meet us there along with the L's. So we waited for a couple of minutes and in walks the L’s, and not just the Ls, but our convert that we taught, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, she was  the first person I ever got to teach and see get baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That night was seriously incredible!! I love the them all, I love my FAMILY!!!! AAAHHHHH My Mission Family came to see me, it was AWESOME!!!! It was like my last town came to me, LOVE IT!!!!

Sunday: Church!!! haha it was a good day, I like church/LOVE church!! Everyone should love church :)

Well, this week has been awesome! I love the temple, it is the closest we will ever be to heaven! Truly is heaven on earth :)
