One Week!

Rachael and I attended orientation for her college this last weekend.   I can’t believe my baby is all grown up!  There are students from 45 states and 15 countries – so quite diverse.  As I was walking to a class I met a lady from New Jersey who comments, “Everyone is so happy and nice here!  I need to learn about the religion here in Utah!”  I told her I was a Mormon and she exclaimed “You mean I am talking to a real live Mormon!”  We had a great conversation and hopefully some of her questions got answered.  Since she was staying right by the Salt Lake Temple I encouraged her to visit the grounds, maybe talk to the missionaries and attend the Spoken Word on Sunday.  I was thankful to have had the opportunity to talk to her because it made me realize that as someone who believes in the gospel of Jesus Christ and His mission I have a lot to be happy about.  And it was fun to talk to a new friend about my beliefs.

Here is a portion of Nathan’s email:  “This next week is going to be awesome. I guess mostly just Saturday. At 2, B…  is getting baptized and right from the baptismal service we will head to my exit interview. And then Elder Burgoyne and I are having a last supper at Texas Roadhouse. And then Sunday night, we are having dinner with Scott and Emily Paradis, the couple whose Sealing I went to last October. It should be awesome!”

He also talks about some of the things he would like to do next week.  He seems excited and I am super excited!  He will be speaking in the Bountiful 17th Ward (our old ward) on the 31st at 11 am and in the Val Verda 4th Ward (our new ward) the same day at 1 pm.  Is that mean or what?  I know Nathan would love to see and talk to all of you so please come! We will be having lunch at our house around 2:30 –  let me know if you need our new address.

    hat a great way to end his mission and I am so proud of you staying your belief and encouraging some one to obtain more information. Who knows what seed you planted.

    Wish we could be there for Nathan’s homecoming talks but we have Luke and his family coming in and it has been so long, we are looking forward to seeing Luke and his family.
