After the temple we toured the Historic Kirtland Village to visit the nationally acclaimed Nativity Exhibit there. There are hundreds of nativities people have donated from around the world, and it is amazing to go and visit. We have invited Jon and the whole family to go with us next week to take a tour. I am excited to be going back.
We had a pretty great week with our lessons. Jon is doing great. This week we taught him, and the whole family the word of wisdom. It is evident that he has a testimony because he didn't question it at all, even though he is addicted to coffee. He drinks so much coffee every day, and has vowed to stop completely by this Wednesday. The rest of the family has made similar commitments, and are still coming to church. He witnessed one of the Elder's investigator, Ben Ward, receive the Holy Ghost yesterday, and was excited for the day he will be confirmed.
The church is true. I feel like Nephi sometimes when he tells us that he doesn't know everything, but I do know that God loves us, and that the gospel has been restored and that is enough. Hope you are all having an amazing week! Don't freeze back home. I love you all!
transfers are next week so we should be getting on the computers on Tuesday. just a heads up:)
also, did you know that Sister Olson is from Elder Arnold's (Andrew’s 2nd companion) home town in Fallbrook, CA. They know each other. who would of thought that both rooster and I would have our second companions from the same itty bitty town...
