Army of God

This was a great week for Braxton. He was able to teach a lot of lessons, 29 in fact. Twenty two of those were about the restoration of the Gospel and he said that his testimony grew so much from testifying of it. It was a neat experience for him.

They were able to go to the Temple this week. Braxton thought it was the best experience he has ever had in the Temple. He learned so much and had some neat experiences. While he was in the Celestial room and thanking Heavenly Father for his family, he was able to see how each member has helped him in his life in a specific way. It was a great experience for him. He loves how Heavenly Father works and teaches us. Braxton is so thankful for everyone in his family, including the in laws and extended family. (he also included Daniel and his family, which will always be important to us and loved by us) He just feels that he has "flat out been blessed with the best."

As he sat in the Temple and looked around at all the missionaries he thought of the Army of God. All those missionaries were called of God to bring the Gospel to the World. What a blessing to be a part of that. Braxton loves it!

He loves being in the Temple and how different it is from the outside world. It's calm, peaceful, and perfect. Just outside the doors is the biggest city in the world, full of corruption and noise, but inside it is Heaven on Earth. No noise, just perfect silence......So Amazing!

He also met Temple workers that were from Hooper. They have lived in California for like 40 years. Their names are Annette Beus Christensen and Allan Christensen. Annette went to school with Braxton's grandma Donna. (small world)

Brax says the days and weeks are flying by. It scares him in a way that this will all be over soon. Even though he is excited to come home and be with everyone again.

He loves everyone more than you'll ever know.
