ALOOOOHA! March 14, 2011

An old pic from Jordan's first transfer meeting after arriving in Hawaii!

My heart goes out to all those in Japan. What a sad day to see what can really happen. We saw some video clips of it at the visitors center on Saturday morning and its a sad deal. I was thinking a lot about that and how we overcome something like that, and really the only way is thru the Gospel. When you have the Gospel, it really comes down to faith knowing that WHATEVER happens, Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. As sad as it is, its even worse to think that most those people don't have the Gospel.

For us all is well. A couple parts of Hawaii got hit with a Tsunami but nothing around us. We had to evacuate and stay up all night so it was actually a pretty fun night for us. It took me back to the good old days of staying up until 3 in the morning hahaha. But it was a blast, we were sure nothing was going to hit us because whenever there is a Tsunami warning, it rarely hits. We had a good night at the Stake Center.

Well this week was pretty hectic with all that and the baptism for M****** has been moved to this Saturday the 19th. We are stoked, she loves the Gospel and is excited to be baptized. Its amazing to think she hasn't been a member all this time. She is doing well and will be baptized this weekend for sure!

Had an awesome testimony builder last night with a recently activated man in one of our wards. 1 year ago he wasn't even going to church and now he goes to the temple everyday. But anywho, we read with him Alma 14 and just took out things from that chapter that apply to us today. He was blown away at how the scriptures can do that and it just reconfirmed my testimony. It really is amazing, all the stories in the Book of Mormon have some purpose for us today, they can all apply to us when we need them. I am grateful for them and I know they are the word of God.

Other than that, all is well. Cheer on my Cougs this week, I know it will be rough without Brandon Davies but Jimmer can pull thru for us! Thanks for everything, you are always in my prayers. Love you all!

Hey is it bad to eat a grapefruit everyday? Because I am and I love it!
