Some cool events and miracles that happened this week :)
1. The mission got special permission to do service for the Junior World Track Championships and Track Town USA (Eugene Oregon). This permission to do this went all the way up to Elder Ballard who said, "That is exactly what we want our missionaries to be doing!" So we helped by first being a model for Adidas clothing, head to toe. It was our uniform that we had to wear. Second we helped with apparel that other volunteers needed, delivered water and snacks to the volunteers and all the missionaries in the area were part of the opening ceremony. We carried flags around the track. It was pretty neat to see all of these countries gathered together. Testimony to me that night that we are all brothers and sisters.
2. The wedding bells are ringing!!! Karisa and Doug set there date for their wedding! Last week they prayed about it and she felt good but the only thing she was worried about was what her mom would think. She didn't want her to think she was rushing into it just to be baptized because she wouldn't understand. Well Karisa experienced a miracle as she called her mom and got her blessing with everything. Her mom was so supportive! The wedding will be September 20!! Heavenly Father answers our prayers.
