Dear Family + Friends,
This past week went by crazy fast. It feels like we just had P-Day yesterday. I had my departing interview with President Bingham . We also had Zone Conference and a district finding activity this week. And all the departing missionaries got to go the Temple with President and Sister Bingham. There was a great Spirit there and I just kept thanking Heavenly Father for letting me come on this mission.
Yesterday at the end of sacrament meeting, our bishop announced that Brother Oldham passed away. It was so sudden and a shock to all of us. He was our ward mission leader. We love brother and Sister Oldham. We stopped by later afternoon with cookies and just sat with her, and talked and cried with her. I felt God's love so strongly. In that moment I finally understood what "mourning with those that mourn" is all about. And what the "pure love of Christ" is all about.
I know that the plan of Salvation is real. I know that peace comes from Jesus Christ.
I'm grateful to be here.
I'm grateful for the time I have here on earth to learn about Jesus Christ and to strive to share His Love with others.
Please keep the Oldham family in your prayers!
