Hunter Week 6: Transfers, Temples, and Conferences Oh My!


Good morning everyone! This past week has yet again been fantastic! We had Stake Conference, which is when multiple local congregations come to together for a big service, this past weekend for the Granger South Stake! We had an Elder from the Seventy come to it, and he was from Mexico. His name is Elder Ben De Hoyos! He was really good at involving everyone, and it was great to hear from him. I got to talk to him and shake his hand! Besides Stake Conference, we did some service for a part member family. They were building a play set for their kids and needed some extra hands! So that was great and we got to know the husband who is not a member of the church and invited them to Conference. We set up a time to teach their family for next Wednesday which will be great!

We also took a recent convert named Tiffany to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple down in South Jordan to do some baptisms for the dead! We as missionaries can't do baptisms in the temple because of some weird rule but we did do confirmations which was a really cool experience! I've never done that before, so it was a really cool! It was a great visit and the temple president's wife talked to us as well as a few other temple workers to help guide Tiffany since it was her first time in the temple. So it was really good! We got to chill with the temple workers and got to know them! One of them was from Sherwood, Arkansas, which is right out of Little Rock. So that was ballin!

We also went to a mission fireside this Sunday which was ballin! They had this ballin Polynesian group sing , and it was really good! President Palmer, our mission president, spoke as well and it was great to hear from him as always! We tried to invite people to it. but everyone said no to us which was sad. It was still a great experience! I also, on a side note, I met a family who had been to Pea Ridge last week which was ballin! They have a son who loves in Fayetteville, but he is in the Prairie Grove Ward! So they went to the military park in Pea Ridge, and they will be going back this October. So I gave them my address so they would know where I live! Haha! But ya, they are a ballin family named the Deardens! So this week has been great, and I'm just ready for summer to get here! I hope all of y'all had a great week as well!
