Well to start off with, Jason did get baptized this Saturday so we are super excited for him. We had a great baptismal service and everything went according to plan and there were a lot of people there to support Jason. He was way excited to get baptized and so were we and his family. So Congratulations Jason :)
Last week were taken to China 1 buffet two days in a row. It was super delicious both times :) But I guess I didn't eat enough because I weighed myself a few days ago and I'm starting to lose weight again. I guess I need to pack in the food a little harder. Or exercise more. Yeah that doesn't sound like a good plan.
This Saturday we also went to the Baptist church to watch the Grand River Valley Choir and Orchestra perform. It was a pretty good little concert. They played 3 or 4 Mac Wilberg arrangements and we got to talk to a lot of people from the community while we were there. Also we had quite a few members of our branch perform with the choir/orchestra.
Today we went to the temple with Brother and Sister Cyborg (Miller). We had a super great time and had a way good experience. Then on the way home the Cyborgs brought us shopping and brought us to lunch at a little shop called Longboards. It was a really good restaurant. I'd definitely recommend it.
This week I've been studying Isaiah a lot and Isaiah 30:19-21 really stuck out to me. They say "...thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." I just thought that was such a cool scripture because it helped me to realize that even though times might get tough for us, the Lord will still hear and answer our prayers. Even through the midst of every trial we have we can still hear the Holy Ghost guiding us on the correct path through this life. God cares about us. He won't leave us out in the cold. He's here with us, cheering us on and giving us guidance when we ask for it. So don't ever question whether He cares about you or whether he is guiding you in your life. He is.
That's pretty much it for the week. Make it a great week. I Love You!
