Personal Revelation

According to your photos it looks like you rearranged the house even more. That's good I'm used to treading in dangerous ground. I want elaborate on my story about Krishna because her baptism is the biggest miracle that I've seen on my mission.

So we were sitting in Church with the local street drunk (he wanted to come to church and in Elder Ashton's words "I felt like a new mother in sacrament meeting") and we were kind of bummed because it seemed like no one else was going to come. But then comes Krishna with her mom. When she walked I received revelation. I thought maybe we could prepare her so she could go to the temple dedication. It would require calling President and asking to jump our 3 times at the church rule and maybe cut a couple days with the minimum word of wisdom BUT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT I REALLY FELT THE SPIRIT TO DO THIS AND I EVEN PRAYED SO THAT I COULD HAVE THAT FEELING CONFIRMED. it was confirmed that that's what we need to do.

So after church and lunch we called President and asked. I presented the situation to him and he gave us the OK to do it. I was so excited. Like literally so excited that I began to tell everyone and we arranged it with Krishna and she said that it would be all good.

That's not even the greatest miracle. The youth have a devotional with the prophet and like that's cool and everything, but the YOUTH ARE GOING TO BE SITTING IN THE TEMPLE WHEN IT GETS DEDICATED.

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT?!?!?!?!? TO BE BAPTIZED AND CONFIRMED, THEN GO TO A DEVOTIONAL WITH THE PROPHET AND THEN SIT IN THE SECOND TEMPLE IN CHILE WHILE IT'S BEING DEDICATED...

I think it's a pretty awesome opportunity. No we're not doing it for just this opportunity. Krishna would get baptized the week after but that wouldn't be as cool.

So yeah that's my awesome story. In other news we played chess to test a man's vision he crushed me. I suck at chess. We also had zone conference in which we talked about receiving personal revelation. Well now I literally have my own testimony about revelation.

I did one week of Insanity and it looks like I've lost weight so that's good. I didn't want a huge pot belly.

Right now we're fasting so that we President Nelson can find some time in his busy schedule to meet with missionaries in the mission of the temple. Right now he doesn't have a conference with the missionaries scheduled but we're fasting so that we can have a small conference with him. We'll see how it goes.

Keep working hard fam *fist bump emojis* I'll see you on the other side.
