COLD morning!

So this morning was the first time that it snowed in Rexburg this semester! I woke up and I looked outside and everything was WHITE! it was crazy. It took me awhile to scrape and clean my windows! woke up at 5:40 then left by 6:15. It was freezing! It was scary to drive over to the temple because the roads were icy! I felt good by the time I got there. Baptisms today were really fun! the spirit was so strong. Today I helped people that were mostly from Germany! They had really cool last names. It is so much fun doing work for others and helping them Progress. Those who have passed on before us cannot be made perfect without us. We cannot be made perfect without them. They NEED us and we NEED them! This Family History class made me realize how important temple work really is! I hope that everyone will start setting goals to going to the temple and ACHIEVE them! This gospel is amazing and I know that it is true! We will be blessed when we do the work of the Lord and when we serve others :)

This week I have a had a tough time with school. Its been really hard but its getting better everyday. This morning I went to the temple to do Baptisms for the dead. It is such a wonderful feeling you have when you are serving. President Gordon B Hinckley says that when you go to the temple, you come out of the temple as a better person. He also said that their hope is in our hands. I feel so grateful that there is a temple so close to BYU-Idaho. I am so glad that I can do work for people that have waiting for a long time! Right now, in Family History, we are searching for our ancestors and see if they need their ordinances done! I am preparing to do my own family names and it is such a wonderful and exciting feeling to know that I am helping progress! Today was great! I love going to the temple to feel of its beautiful spirit and the joy it brings to everyone!I am very grateful for having this awesome opportunity!

Earlier this morning, I was able to do baptisms today in the Rexburg Temple. It was a really cool experience. While I was waiting, I pulled out my partiarchal blessing. Wow, it was cool to see how many different things pop out every time I have read it. Most of the names that I was baptized for were from Samoa! It was a really cool experience. As I was getting baptized I was looking for the time when that person was born. It blew my mind when I thought about how long that person has been waiting to recieve the gospel. When I came out of the font, I felt like I was there for a reason and I knew that I was in the right place. It was so beautiful when I walked out of the temple today! Ill post a picture later! Great Day :)

Baptisms on Friday 9, 2009 :)

Early on Friday morning, I got the chance to go to the Rexburg Temple with my best friend. It was an amazing experience to get up and to feel the spirit so early in the morning. It was cool to feel the difference of how I felt before I went and when left the temple. I felt that I was clean and fresh! While I was sitting there waiting to do the confirmations, the temple president spoke to us. He said that these are real people and they really are waiting for us! It is up to us and their hope is in our hands. Before, I knew that the people were real and they were waiting but when the president actually told us, it was different and I knew that I was doing the right thing and I was there to help those so that they can progress and move forward and receive those blessing. I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to go to the temple to feel of its joy and its light!
