It has been a bittersweet and hectic day to say the least. Saying goodbye to everyone in Houghton Lake was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I got to sing a solo yesterday for the first time, and afterwards, the first counselor in the branch presidency got up and gave me some of the nicest complements I have ever been given. Afterwards he said, "this kid is on fire, and it would be a wasted opportunity if we didn't invite him to bear his testimony." Normally I don't get emotional with this kind of stuff, but it was hard to hold back the tears. Though the week was very successful, I didn't feel very good about it, and the spirit I felt Sunday was just what I needed.
It has been FREEZING this week. The wind chill got down to -20 for most of the week and the normal Temp hovered at about 0. And we walked most of the week. haha Elder Johnson must hate me, because the whole time I was singing "Oh what a beautiful MOOOOORNING! OH what a beautiful DAYYYYYYY!" haha I am weird...
