Weekly Email # 31 - Temple Trip # 2

Hey guys!

This will be a short email this week because we are doing our temple
trip today. Actually just got done with it and it was so great! I came
with a lot more questions like trying to understand Adam and Eve's
temptation, investigator concerns, and personal thoughts. The temple
can answer all of those and more.

After the temple session, we are currently at the mission home with
President Daines for some missionary business. And I asked him the
question, "Why did God command Adam and Eve to partake of the fruit
when He knew they had to break that commandment?" He started messing
with my mind and we had a great discussion about it and much more. The
temple is awesome and brought so much peace to me today!

This month, President felt inspired to conduct a mission fast to help
our mission's investigators come to Church. We are working hard out
here and it'll be soon when we get our next baptism.

I'll add a cool quote that I found over this past week. Hope you all
have a great week!

President George Q. Cannon said once: “No matter how serious the
trial, how deep the distress, how great the affliction, [God] will
never desert us. He never has, and He never will. He cannot do it. It
is [against] His character [to do so]. He is an unchangeable being. …
He will stand by us. We may pass through the fiery furnace; we may
pass through deep waters; but we shall not be consumed nor
overwhelmed. We shall emerge from all these trials and difficulties
the better and the purer for them, if we only trust in our God and
keep His commandments."
