|Mount Hood in the background|
So I forgot to mention an out of this world experience I had several weeks ago. (WARNING do not read while you eat) We were invited to eat lunch with a less active. He had a Scottish background and was very passionate about it. He fed us a delicious meal and right before we left, he made us fried haggis (a Scottish delicacy) . Haggis is grounded up cow heart, lung, brain, liver, and intestines.. I wanted to have something very memorable and brave to write down in my journal so I ate it!! It wasn't very good...I could eat it if I had too, but it wasn't one of my favorite foods. Haha so my mission is foreign! Estacada is very foreign to the rest of the areas, but I absolutely love it! I have awesome stories to tell and interesting experiences like giving several blessings in the back of someone's car...Anyway back on track with this week.

|At the Portland Temple|
I was able to go to the Portland temple to attend a session on Saturday. It was such a great experience. (I kinda got a little emotional, but I held it together! ;) There was a recent convert there from Portland who took out her endowments that very session. I had to congratulate her! It bought back a lot of tender memories. It is crazy how I have changed in so many ways...hopefully for good haha! I have more courage to talk to random strangers then I did before that's for sure especially talking about the gospel! After the temple we went as a district to Applebee's and ate lunch. Then the Peterson's took us to Costco while we were still in Lake Oswego (the city haha) and I was able to get a great rain coat for only $30! It works fantastic! It is light, warm, keeps out the rain, water repellent, and stylish haha! I love Costco! I love the Peterson's! ️
|My new raincoat|
It has been rain, rain, rain, and more rain! ️ I love it! (probably because I am not in it as much thanks to the car!) tomorrow is suppose to be cloudy. ️ Every now and then the sun peaks out of the clouds and you get a couple of moments of sunshine️ which I love! Reminds me that there is always hope in any dreary situation! :) Perfect timing with the winter package Mom! spot on! The sweaters keep me warm and toasty!
This Friday we have our Ward Halloween party! There will be a chilli contest, costume parade, and a trunk of treat! Super excited! Getting a little bit nervous with upcoming transfers...anyway we are in for an exciting week this week!
I hope you all have a great week full of joy, love, and happiness! I love you all so much!
