Well, that is directed to all of you people not currently situated in the lovely, hot state of Arizona. I wouldn’t have even noticed that the time had switched, except that on Sunday morning, as we were getting ready to go to church, I looked at the clock and thought, “That’s weird… We shouldn’t have an extra hour to get to church…” Then I looked at the clock and realized that my other clock still said that time that I expected it to be. So, I looked back at the atomic clock and told it to change time zones, and it did.
Anyway, this week has been chock-full of tons of exciting stuff. We had the baptism of the Garrobo family on Saturday, which was amazing. We also had Zone Conference yesterday (the reason for switching our P-day to Tuesday), went to the temple this morning, visited my old area this morning, and a bunch of other great stuff.
Zone Conference was amazing, as always, except for some rather unhappy news regarding Sis. Bassett, our mission president’s wife… The informed us yesterday that she has (luckily one of the most treatable types of) cancer. She goes into surgery on Thursday morning, so everybody please keep her in your prayers. She’ll be out of the loop of things for several months, which will be hard.
The Temple this morning was amazing, as always. I’ve been realizing that I need to make some changes in how I do things. Lots of time I lose focus of the most important things, and through a mixture of Zone Conference and the Temple, I’ve come to realize how I can best make the changes.
In other news, we’ve got another baptism coming up, that of the Garcia family. They had their interviews yesterday and are very excited to take the step. Oh, and Adriana Garrobo, the mother in the family that we baptized last week, gave us a referral for one of her good friends, who we taught last night. That was awesome. Her testimony is amazing, and she was a great help in the lesson.
Also, Freddie (a man from my last area) is getting married to his girlfriend this Thursday, and they have requested that I be there. So, we’ll see what I can do about that. I sincerely hope that I can make it.
But I think that just about does it. Sorry, the thoughts are really kind of spuradic this week, but I think that you understand. There’s a lot going on, and I’ve got quite a bit of stuff running through my head.
