7/13/15 Noah's Ark

(I was telling Chad about our family reunion this year.)

That's pretty weird having only 4 from our family at the reunion this year! There are some new faces in the picture, I am assuming they belong to Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Greg, I haven't met them, in fact, I haven't even seen any pictures of them! Why is Cayla moving to Hawaii?

Dad did the polar bear? Originally, it was just them taking a bath there at night, right?  

If Brittany is still thinking about names refer her to 2 Nephi 18:1 or Isaiah 8:1

I thought Krew was scared of the word bear!  Like when dad would say there are bears outside and he would start to cry...

So, this week with my convert E____, we did this Noah's ark thing we do where you mention that in the scriptures it says that the Lord himself had to close up the ark and make them imagine themselves as Noah standing there in the doorway as the rain starts to fall and you see all of your family, friends and neighbors outside the ark who are going to die and we tell her the time is short until the Lord comes and closes the door for the last time.  We ask her who are are the 8 family or friends who she would invite into the ark with her. It only took her about 45 seconds to tell us, she barely had to think about it because she really has felt the difference the gospel has made in her life!

On a side note, the mother of one of the references was looking for something to Bible bash about and she asked us how we feel about Deuteronomy 22, I said, I haven't gotten around to memorizing the Law of Moses since Christ fulfilled it.  Apparently, it says, among other things that women can't wear men's clothes so for that reason they are not allowed to wear pants.  I guess that is one more thing to be thankful for in the true church, haha

(I asked him to take more pictures and he said the following)  It is against the rules, in fact in a recent zone meeting the ZLs said we shouldn't have our cameras with us in general unless it is pday... and if i ask for other times to be able to take pictures MP would probably say if you baptize every week you'd have pictures every week so yeah... haha

Family home evening with with a bunch of the branch in a converts home...
To his dad:
You shot a 77? Wow
There's a girl's team at canyon now? How many are on the golf teams? 
Don't expect a long report from me either haha but yeah I've really realized how important families are on the mission one certainly sees the effect of not having a family of the sort that the prophets teach about.
64 great grandchildren? Is that just those who were there or in general?
