Hello to all my friends :) WHAATA WEEK! This episode is gonna be pretty wild, so fasten your seatbelts!
First off, HAPPY BDAY A MI PADRE!! I gave him a pretty good present which included a set of stickers that were my face! Now I will always stick around :))) Super grateful for my awesome dad! He deserves the world and more!! We also had the ward Halloween party at our house! It was so good to see all the members gathered together again and made me really miss going to church with everyone. I was able to catch the end of the party and all the youth groups did such a good job with their little stations!
Then.... Happy Halloween! My dad and I went for a birthday/ Halloween donut run in the morning and I felt so happy. Nothing like a maple bar to start the day off right. The elders in my district have also been having way to much fun with the virtual backgrounds. This week, the best two were "cardona's room" and "baldona." (cardonas room pictured below). "Cardona's room" was done on Halloween in an effort to scare Elder Cardy. 'Twas successful.
During class on Monday, Jen and I did not realize that we had a practice lesson with an "investigator." We did not prepare, and lucky us got to go first. Considering our lack of preparation, I thought it went swimmingly. The elders that went after us apparently did just as bad and one of them told me he felt like he was composed of three chromosomes. Tough week for lessons. But only up from here!
On Tuesday night... TAGG GOT HERE!! It was soso much fun to see him! He is my favorite brother! (carter and rover not included). Then on Wednesday.. I was able to go through the temple! Precious moments with my precious people! I am so grateful for my amazing family. I know that the temple is the house of God, and I don't think that anyone who has been in that building can deny it. In a devotional this week, Elder Waddell said "Ordinances and covenants are the credentials to be within God's presence. To receive them is the quest of a lifetime. And to keep them is the challenge of mortality."
I love you allll!!! Hope ya had a spooktacular week!
Luv Herman Bart
