Then on Wednesday we were on exchanges with the Chariton elders. On Thursday we went on exchanges in Lenox with the Lenox elders. Friday we had weekly planning and visited a couple people.
On Saturday we went to Nauvoo and I had one of the most powerful experiences on my mission so far, Danny & Amber were endowed & sealed for time & all eternity. I woke up at 5:30am to get ready and we didn't get back until 9:40 pm. It was a super long day. The sealing was fantastic. I don't think I will ever forget that experience.
Church was canceled yesterday because the weather was ridiculous, -2, -16 with the windchill. Our mission has been closed to tracting 3 out of 7 days this past week.
I have learned SO much on my mission so far. I think one of the biggest things I have learned is that no matter what you can always pray! I have also learned that the Holy Ghost will never fail you. I have learned so much about the gospel and how it blesses those who are open to it and follow it.
