Yesterday, I had to go to a practice for a sepecialy number for an Institute Chorale concert. I have no car, so I had to take public transportation to the practice. While I was at the Front Runner station, a girl asked me if I had a phone she could borrow. Of course she had to ask the one person who didnt have a phone. We started talking, and I ended up telling her I was going on a mission. She graduated the same year as me, and she went to a school in Salt Lake. I asked her if she was L.D.S. and she told me that she wasnt, so just as the Salt Lake train pulled up I asked her if she would like a copy of the Book of Mormon, and I told her that she should read it, because it is a great help in my life. I happened to have a Book of Mormon in my back pack, and I gave it to her. She opened it while she went to get on the train to Salt Lake. I thought it was so cool that the opportunity just happened to come up, and I was able to give someone the chance to have the Book of Mormon. I really hope she reads it, and prays to know that it is true. It was a real blessing to be able to talk to her, and have a missionary moment with her. I cant wait for my mission, so I can have those moments all the time!!!

So I had the opportunity to get my endowments out yesterday, and it was the best expierience of my life. I feel so blessed to have the gospel in my life, and to have Temples surrounding the place I live. I felt the spirit so strong while in the temple, and you could feel such an absence of the advesary. I think it is the best thing that you can do when you are old enough, and worthy. I am so proud of my family, and so glad that they could all be worthy for the temple. I cant wait till Annie is old enough to go through, that way we can go as a whole family.
