Cedar City Week 3

The St. George Temple is under construction.  We went to see it on our way to some missionary training.  The Church offers virtual tours.  If you’re interested in taking a virtual tour, click here.

Cedar City Week 3

(week 10)

The days are long and the weeks are short! This has been a pretty good week.
 
We had a lesson with Damian and Sabrina Monday night and at the end Damian asked all three of us to pray! It was very special and kind of a cute thing to ask.
 
Wednesday we went down to St Geezy, aka st George, for my second training! Really it was sort if my first since I missed the first one (thank you Delta-delayed plane). St George was great, we went to the temple visitors center and and Target (we don’t have one here in Cedar City!). Getting to hear from President Kaluhiokalani and his wife was also very nice. I think I like missionary work better than missionary training though…
 
People are doing pretty well! 
 
Jaxx gets baptized in 2 weeks! We taught him the commandments yesterday and it was a fun lesson.
 
We are trying to transition Sabrina and Damian to the elders in their new ward… but we ended up playing musical chair church yesterday. The elders kept giving us the wrong info on what their ward building and time is, so they ended up going to one that isn’t even in their stake… it was less than ideal. We have a lesson tonight with the elders in attendance sooo… interesting.
 
We haven’t heard from Reshell for about a week… so we will hopefully get a hold of her this week because we love her (and really would rather not need to push her baptism back again.)
 
Also, I placed 2 book of Mormons this week!!!!! One with a super cool dude, JJ, and one with our new friend Joseph. Both were very receptive to the message. JJ even said he’d go pick his copy up himself! Pretty exciting.
 
I just love the Book of Mormon so much. This week I focused a lot on reading it, and the more I read it the more I love it! Yesterday I read it during a lot of church, like during the sacrament so that I could stay focused on the Savior. I ended up reading 20 chapters yesterday, marking references to the Savior as I went. I’ve made a few goals:
1: finish the book of Mormon this transfer
2: read the whole book of Mormon once a transfer for the rest of my mission. 
3: next time I read, I’m going to look for how the Lord helps his people (when He has mercy, succors them, etc) 
 
I think it’s totally doable!!! I’m even toying with the idea of using the same copy and just marking it with different colors each time… we’ll see how “loved” (aka probably trashed) this copy will be by then!! Sticking it in and out of my bag all the time has not been super kind to it…
 
I’m excited! Missionary life is awesome! Love you all!!
