This week Elder Payne and I complete 11 months BUT it is also the half way mark of our mission. Because of our visas, foreigners return about 20 days or so early from the mission. I have calculated it according to when we have changes and we will be coming back September 14th, 2016. It's really weird to think that I have less than a year here in the mission. I feel like I'm just starting to get the hang of things.
This week we went to the temple's open doors with some investigators, less actives, and recent converts. It doesn't matter where you are in the world, the temple is always the most beautiful and peaceful place you can be. At the end of the tour, they let us stay in the Celestial Room for a few minutes and ponder and feel the peace. I felt the spirit and I could see our investigators felt it too. I can't wait until it opens!! It has been almost a year since I have been to the temple! It was so wonderful to finally be able to go inside.
I'm so very thankful for the opportunity that I have to be able to be a missionary. I'm so excited that my brother Tyler has chosen to do the same thing. There is no other experience I've had in life where I have learned so much, in such a short amount of time.
Thank you all for remembering me and I hope to hear from you next week!!
