One Week More!

With one week to go, there are so many things that go through a person's head.  It is crazy to think that in 7 days, most everything I know will be changing.  I will be around people that I don't know very well, I will be in an unfamiliar place, I won't have parents there to complain to...  Everything is just so insane, but I am so excited for it!  I feel more prepared now than I did even a little bit ago, which probably means that I am far from ready, but I'm going to go with that good attitude nonetheless.

Today I had the amazing opportunity to go to the Timpanogos Temple with some friends: Melissa Killpack, Ashley Warren, Lindsey Turner, Katelyn Louder, Adam Holderness, and Chris Brousseau.  Ever since I went to the temple for myself, I have always had the desire to go with a group of friends.  And just being able to do that leads me to acknowledge that we live in such a blessed area - to be able to share your religion with so many of your very best friends and to experience something so spiritual while in the company of those friends, it truly is incredible.

Another thing that I found out recently was that my friend Adam Holderness and I will actually be going to the Mexico City MTC on the same day - September 25th - and after conversing with him for a while, I found out that we are going to be on the same flight and that we are sitting super close as well!  We are sitting a row apart (I'm in front of him) and just a couple seats apart.  So basically, all of those people who are sitting in between Adam and I are going to be 'doomed for conversion.'  :)  I just really hope that I can pull the whole "hey, i'm sitting by you on an airplane, so let me share the gospel with you" approach on someone.

But with one week to go, there are so many things that I still need to do as I think about it.  Also, there are so many people that I want to see!  After we went to the temple as a group, all of us went over to the OHS Seminary building to say goodbye to our great seminary teachers that we had over the years, and it was awesome to be able to see some of my friends that are still in school as well!  And if any of you guys are reading this:  I would love to see you one last time before I go!  Meaning, come to my farewell!

But throughout the day today, I was able to go to the temple 3 times!  The first time in the morning was doing a session with my friends.  The second time, I was able to go and take my mission photos on the temple grounds with my dad.  And then the third time, I went up with the Teacher's quorum in my ward and helped them with baptisms.  It was so great - I felt the spirit so much today.

Alright, this is probably going to be one of the few blog posts that I make as Nate rather than Elder Hubert, so this is me signing off.
