|The Fort Collins Colorado Temple is going to be open on the 19th! Wish|
I could go! I suggest going, you don't need to be a member.

We had FHE (Family Home Evening - a get together for the young single adults) on Monday. We had our spiritual message and, then, taste tested 14 different Pringles flavors and it wasn't multiple choice. I only got 2/14 lol! Some people were really good, though! The highest amount someone got correct was 11/14. Yup, so that was super fun! Chris was going to come, but we found out last minute he needed a ride and no one lives near him! We got him to come to a dinner with us with 6 members at their apartment, though. They played Super Smash Bros after haha!
We had Zone Conference this week and that was pretty interesting.. Haha! Something that is changing is that any meetings before 10 except New Missionary/Training Orientation will always be at 10 or later. President knows how important Book of Mormon Study is and wants us to have Personal Study for at least 30 minutes each and every day.
We helped a member move some furniture he bought for his friend moving to this area into his new home as a surprise for when he gets here. That was fun! The member doing this is super ripped, too! That was helpful!
We had exchanges for Friday. Elder Bollschweiler came into my area with me and Elder Bingham went into their area with Elder Bird. It was a fun day! We biked to FMSC. Elder Bollschweiler liked the exercise, but not the bike, haha!
We went to downtown Aurora and did some street contacting and looking for a a referral's house that we found out doesn't exist... We were heading back to the car and a nice member asked if we wanted some Gatorade out of her window in her car. We said 'Sure!" Some people are so very nice!
The nice thing about this exchange is that I got to drive! Yay!
We had dinner with Joe and Dominic for the last time here. They finished work that day. They are awesome. Sariah was there, too. They are all "Service Pros" and are part of the group that feeds us a lot haha!
Then we exchanged again. The next morning we went to FMSC again and Joe and Dominic came because they were off work. It was pretty fun and they really enjoyed it, too!
We went to a baptism in Bloomingdale for a boy Elder Bingham taught before. The Ward Mission Leader there who picked us up is hilarious!
Anyway, I know that God made a plan for us and that he wants us to succeed. I know that we need to continue on having spiritual experiences and going often to church, so that we don't fall away. Making the hard right instead of the easy wrong is the way to grow and that is why we are here. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
