So this email session was the worst. I ran outta time, but the temple was so great, and I loved it so much! I love the feeling that I get there, and how I was able to get lots of answers. We watched a less active's two twin daughters get blessed. I started crying, cause it was so tender, and the blessing was not only for her, but for their family. It was awesome. I wish that I had more time to write, but know that I love you all so much, and am so grateful that I am out on a mission. Sister C3 goes home Monday, and watching her freak out about that stress just reminds me that I am so grateful to be out here, with lots of time left. Candy is planning on getting baptized on the 21st of March, which is my 10 month mark. I told her that she and I would celebrate together, and then she said, okay Master Rietz. She thinks that since I am always leading the lessons, that I am the ring-leader. and that I keep these other two hooligans in line. We had lots of rain this last week, and were able to play in it. I split my pants from the fabric being cheap. Guess that is what happens when you buy 2 dollar pajamas. I love being a missionary, and seeing the miracles that occur everyday. I am sure that there are countless miracles around you, and that they help build your faith in Heavenly Father. I know that he loves all of his children, and that he has a special plan for each one of us. I am able to see that all the time as we visit with others. I love this CHURCH! Have a great week! I will definitely plan it all out better next week. Also, transfers are next week, so we will see if I will still be in Upland next week! I hope I am! LOVE YOU ALL!!!
