I went a book club the other day. I was doing initiatory in the temple and one of the sisters noticed my name and said she had read my book. She invited me to her book club to speak. It was nice to meet such amazing people. I shared my testimony in Arabic at the end and it was cool because I felt the Spirit there. They sent me home with this huge bouquet of flowers...
We had Stake Girls' Camp this week. I wanted to go up to see what it is like. Danae and I drove up Friday after work. They had a Luau and had decorated making it look Hawaiian. The girls seemed to have fun. I played briefly with them and watched the program. Our stake presidency performed a song from Mulan. They talked about how sometimes we need to lead others and be an example of faith.
Here is our stake presidency ;)
The area around the camp is beautiful. It was filled with yellow flowers. It rained all day, but stopped enough for us to enjoy visiting and have the luau. They served an amazing Hawaiian dinner.
People celebrate Father's day today in the US. We don't really have that back home. But this day always reminds me of the amazing father I had. The funny thing is, I always miss him most when I am trying to fix something around my house. He always did such a great job fixing thing, but also fixing problems. He always intervened in family conflicts and got them resolved. I miss you dad! I can't wait to see you again one day.
I also take this time of year to pay attribute to my Heavenly Father. He is all I have right now since my father is on the other side. Heavenly Father has been sending blessings my way constantly but especially the last 3 years. I can't thank Him enough for providing me with this job and with a safe place to live. I am eternally grateful for his infinite love, compassion, forgiveness, patience and peace.
I had a dream once about the second coming. I reflect on that a lot because the feeling I had when I saw the Savior again felt so real and sooo amazing. This makes me always look forward to seeing my Father in Heaven again. I can't wait to see him and embrace him. And say, I missed you Father...
