Lets Get it Started, in HEEERE

What is up everybody, I just have to say how much I love you all. I have thought alot about all you that I dont get to see being out here. I miss you but how sweet will it be in 18 monthes when I get to see you all again :)
I am starting to love this new area. Tappahannock has some great qualties to it. As you can see from the pictures it is a very beautiful area. we did has a sweet storm this past week with a tornado warning haha. Can't wait to expereince one of those #yolo.
The best part of this week came on Saturday, when I got to attend 3 Baptisms!!!!! Saturday was such an amazing day. My first baptisms in the mission. And actually the first baptism I have been to since my own :0 but It was so amazing. So yes, I did get to go back to Staunton to see the Harada kids get baptised :) and then drove all the way back (across the mission) to see a baptism for a lady in the branch. Feb. 22, 2014 is a day that will go down in my record books :)
I have been studying a lot out of the "preparing to enter the temple" booklet. Even though I probably won't be able to go to the temple for a long time. I still enjoy reading about it and gaining a better understanding of it. I love the temple; for the stuff you do inside, but also the beauty it brings into my life.
Well thank you all so much for all of you love and support! I love you all, Plz keep me in ur prays especially the next couple weeks :) but also let me know if I can do anything to help any of you. Thanks, and keep up the good work whatever your labors are!
A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song'til you sing it,
And love in your heart wasn't
put there to stay--
Love isn't love 'till you
give it away
Love, Elder young
