But now on to the positive side of things of service. We had an awesome chance to help at an Elderly Convention because we are "ELDERly" hahaha. . . see what I did there? I thought it was good. But we had the opportunity to serve people and give them food, and other things. We had our whole zone helping out, in our bright yellow shirts, and it was a lot of fun. There were a few elderly who wanted us to come to their house and help them out with more service. I was like of course. I'm excited to help them soon. But the Elderly Convention was so cute to see all those really old people with their spouses dancing. Precious!!! I was like, I hope this is like me and my wife one day.
On Saturday we had the opportunity to go do baptisms for the dead with Lorenzo (who was baptized a week ago). It was amazing being in the temple again. The spirit was so strong. Lorenzo said that it was such a wonderful experience. He was so happy. He had the biggest smile on his face in the temple. I love the temple. I encourage you all to go to the temple. Especially you guys in Utah, because there are so many people who have to drive so far just to get to the temple and in Utah its just right down the road. But I love the temple and I love the peace that I feel there. If any of you haven't been in a while, GO!!! If you can't go inside, go sit on a bench in the temple grounds, because the spirit is so strong on the grounds as well.
The rest of the week was amazing. I am coming closer and closer to my savior everyday. I have pleaded with my Father in Heaven in my prayers for guidance. I have such a strong testimony of prayer and I know that it can bless lives. If your life is hard and you have a lot of trials in your life, CRY UNTO OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN!! HE IS THERE!!! I love you all and I hope you have a lovely week.
Love Elder Heiner
