August 10th 2009

We have a baptism is today!! I'm so excited!! It's going to be a really great service.

Other than that, nothing out of the ordinary has gone on lately. There is a tropical storm headed our way, but it shouldn't be too bad. We have 72 hour kits ready if we need them, a lot of food, and a lot of members calling us to make sure we'll be okay and offering help if we need it. The only likely concern is that the power will go out, but we're prepared for that!

This Thursday is our "Mission Tour" meeting. All the missionaries on the island, except those serving in Laie, will meet together and listen to Elder Kikuchi of the Seventy speak to us. He used to be a mission president here in Hawaii. It'll be neat but I heard he speaks for about 4 hours at a time so hopefully my usual missionary tired-ness won't catch up to me..

Lately I've been studying more about the Spirit World, Resurrection, Judgment, and our eternal destinations. It's interesting how deep some of the doctrine gets, but how true it is. The Bible talks about every stage of the Plan of Salvation, but it only gives bits and pieces. If I didn't know the Plan of Salvation, I would have absolutely no idea what these scriptures would be talking about. But because we have the Book of Mormon, everything makes so much more sense. The best part is that it's TRUE!

Anyway, I have to run, but I love you all and miss you! Write back soon!

Love,
Bridget
