This begins the last week of the transfer and time has definitely flown by. When I look back it seems like I just got here but it also seems like life before the mission didn't really exist. Kind of an odd feeling. This week was especially great because we got to go to Palmyra, which is about 2 hours away, with a guy we are teaching. Palmyra is the place where a lot of church history took place, such as the Smith log cabin, the Framehouse, and the Sacred Grove. There's also a visitor's center where you can watch the Restoration movie and dig deeper into the history of the early church years. What a great experience it was not only personally but to see the guy we took also experience a spiritual boost of peace to help him deal with what's going on in his life. He said he finally felt a feeling of peace that he hasn't felt in a while. To be in the exact location that thousands of missionaries talk about, and millions of church members bear testimony of, is pretty amazing. I'm so lucky and blessed to be in this place at this time.
