Well it's quite warm - ok well looking at the weather it really isn't that warm but it just feels so hot. Kind of takes the energy out of you.
So on Saturday the stake and an activity with all of youth and the missionaries- and we did divisions with all of the youth and did contacts in the street inviting them all to come into the chapel for an open house- I didn't have so much luck in my contacts but it was the first time in a long time that I have done so many street contacts. It was a good activity though. Then shortly there after Elder Marin and Elder Perez who work in our ward as well had a baptism that we went and helped out/played the piano.
On Sunday we went to the hospital to visit a member who has been there for some time now, and we were just there- It's a bit hard to discribe the feels that I had as we just watched his son just hold his hand and stroke his head. My thoughts went to the talk of Elder Oaks, when he mentioned "A loving Heavenly Father gives us those feelings to impel us to help His children." The man can`t talk, 84 years old and just waiting it appears. What a great blessing we truely have to have the Gospel in our lives.
