Temple Trip

This weekend was wonderful! We started off leaving Chinook at 4:00pm on Thursday and arriving in Rexburg at 11:00pm that same night. On Friday, my parents and I went to Deseret Book to buy temple stuff. After I had all of the things I needed, we met friends and family at the temple for my endowment. It was such a wonderful experience, and I can't wait to go again.

Here I am with my grandparents
And here I am with two of my "aunts"
Temples really show how important family is, and I'm so glad that I had some of mine with me!
Along with receiving my endowment, I also bought necessary supplies for my mission. Especially clothes! I had a blast picking out blouses, cardigans, and skirts. Doing it all with my sisters and a girlfriend made it even better!
I even got to have lunch with my favorite uncle!
This weekend had the perfect ending-with friends! We had Easter dinner with the Bear family and had a blast! I love hanging out with all of these crazy folks! I'm sure going to miss all of them, but I know that time will pass quickly and I'll be back with them before I know it.

Follow Him—An Easter Message about Jesus Christ

Easter is quickly approaching. Easter seems to be about candy, bunnies, and eggs in today's world, but that's not what it's really about. I challenge you to remember the reason for this holiday. Christ died that we might all live again. Through His atonement, we can be be forgiven for our sins and strengthened through His love. I challenge you to answer His call to follow Him.

62 Days

Since I forgot to post about me getting my call, I'll make it official here. I have been called to serve in the Argentina Buenos Aires South Mission! I'm so excited!!! I secretly hoped that I would go to Argentina and I actually got called there! I am so glad to have my call. It is such a relief to know where I'm going and to be able to prepare to go. It is also wonderful to be able to put my Spanish to use.

Until next time,

(soon to be) Hermana Chaffin
