We went to the FAIR last P-day! Our investigator, Richard, invited us, so our awesome ward mission leader, Sister Clark, took us and we met up with Richard and his wife and all went around the fair together! First I got a 'tiger ear', which is just really big frybread with cinnamon sugar. Then we saw the Indian relay races, which is where these guys from different Indian tribes from around the area race horses bareback, jump off the horses, then jump onto a different horse and continue racing. It is crazy!! Also, we were walking around the different shops and things, and I saw Brock!! He has been at school but came back to visit his family for labor day. It was so great to see him!! I've forgotten how much I've missed some of my friends back home. Great day!
TRINITY GOT BAPTIZED!!! Her and her family have been preparing so much for this day! There was a bit of last-minute confusion about who was baptizing her (apparently her Uncle didn't get the memo! :o ) but it eventually all worked out, and there was a great turn-out.
The Lord is with me. I can feel Him supporting me through every day. There is still so much for me to learn and do here, I just hope I can cram it all into the time that the Lord has allotted me. I love studying the gospel. If I could do it all day, I would. If I could just bury myself in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon, studying the life of the Savior, I would. Sometimes, when we're walking, I like to imagine the Savior, in his sandals and his long white robe, walking in front of me, leading us where to go. All I have to do is follow, as the disciples of old did. It gives me confidence knowing that the Savior has promised to "go before [my] face." I know that he has promised to "be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up."
I have felt this personally, and I know it's true. I pray that you can all feel this influence.
