This week at the temple there was also a Wilford Woodruff descendants tour! For those of you who don't know Wilford Woodruff was the fourth prophet of our church in these latter days, my fourth great grandpa and he was also born in Farmington Ct which is where the temple is so it was really neat to meet some distant cousins i even got to take a picture with all of them!
I also got to see tons of members from Westerly and Weston this week at the temple which was really fun i got to see Bud and Ruthy Walters and their daughter Victoria who just got baptized, which was a huge transformation because she used to leave the house when missionaries came over and now she is getting back to college and living the gospel with her parents!
Its really fun to see lots of people i have met over my mission especially recent converts who i met while in PVC from various areas of the mission.
So we left the temple earlyto do an FHE activity with some less active families in the ward we got to make fresh apple cider and brother Tubiola, who we have been trying to get to come back to church since i have been in Bloomfield came to church after 2 years of not coming!
About 3 months ago we met with one of our member's brother's girlfriend who is not a member we taught her the restoration of the church and after the lesson we were really worried that she didn't like it and that we didn't do a very good job, she left for college and we just kind of forgot about it... fast forward to this sunday we get a text from our member who tells us that this girl has decided to get baptized! Our member told us that this girl, Sara, told them that she had been praying the week before that they would invite her to take the lessons from the missionaries and that same week was when we went and taught her! She then went to school and took lessons from sister and will be getting baptized in November!
Perks of being tight with the cleaning lady, and maintenance and security guys at the temple is that you get to go to the roof of the temple and you get to clean the temple including the oxen!
Dont be afraid to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, people may have different views/believes than you but the most important thing we can do is "publish peace" and treat others with love, that is the only real way to share Gods love with others.
love you all have a great week!
