The first thing I have to say is that I passed my 20th month mark on Tuesday. Now I just have 4 1/2 months left. This is crazy. Time has flown by so fast. Never take time for granted or else it's thrown away like any other old used thing. Then again, time can also be like an hourglass. It can be repeated over and over, but no particle is ever quite the same than when it first went through the glass. New experiences will always await us. We have a lifetime and beyond in the next life to learn until the perfect day. Next week, is transfer calls, so the next experiences will either be shared still with Elder Beus in Northland Ward, or somewhere, or with someone else, butI think I will stay here with Elder Beus and finish training him. After that, who knows, but President and the Lord.
Tomorrow, we will be having team ups with President Brown, one of the councilors for President Palmer. He knows Elder Beus' family back in Mesa, Arizona. He lives in Tracy right now, so this team up will be very interesting. We plan on teaching Marcia Baker's son, Michael, the discussions. We already shared the restoration with him. I think our next plan will be the plan of salvation. He seems to slowly be changing already. He at least wants to learn from us. Sally's been sick again and been in bed a lot. I bet it has something to do with kidney failure or else diabetes, or both. I feel sorry for her. She has great desires to do the right thing. One day she will be able to go into the temple and do baptisms for the dead, and later other ordinances as well.
Well, Marianne's back from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was a long month for her, but she's back. She found out what her real condition is. I can't remember the name, but it has something to do with her genetics, and it causes irritable digestive problems. It's not curable since it is genetic, so she has to deal with it the rest of her life. All she can do is treat a few symptoms, so we will be seeing her again soon as well.
General Conference was pretty good. I liked the Saturday afternoon since it was so bold with it's messages. I don't have much else to say. I still need to review all my notes from Conference to remember it all. Oh yeah one more thing. It's slightly raining right now finally. It's never rained once throughout this summer here in California. Now the air will be clean for at least a day now that there is no more dust. It's been so dry. The soil is like sand here, so it feels like I'm on the beach but no ocean in the Central Valley. It's also quite cool. It gets cold in the evening each time these cold fronts move in. Then it warms back up. By the end of this month, it will never be hot again while I'm in California. This is my last Conference and last winter before I come home. So prepare ye, ye ends of Utah, for your White is drawing nigh. Mu-ah-ah-ha-hah!!!
