So she was confirmed on Sunday. Just to give a little back knowledge to the situation, Two of the speakers called in sick really late, and so we as a ward council decided to have some of us go up, explain one of our favorite hymns, and then to have the whole congregation sing it. I volunteered right off the bat, and of course chose #221 "DEAR TO THE HEART OF THE SHEPPARD!" So that was a great preface to walking into sacrament meeting.
It was a great spirit as she confirmed, and as I sat down, I felt prompted to write her a little note, asking her to write down all the things that she remembered about her confirmation. I handed it to her as I came up and gave a little talk about why #221 has been one of my favorite hymns, and how we're all so blessed to be able to have the Holy Ghost with us all the time, in these 'green inviting pastures'. It was one of the neatest things hearing the whole congregation sing that song.
After the meeting, she gave me back the note, with a little note to me on the back. She said she'd go home and write it down, but wanted me to have that copy of the note. I think that note, will be one of the most treasured things I take home with me after my mission. One of my favorite points on there was as she mentioned that "after I got up, I finally felt that light and peace that I wanted the whole time". Awe man my heart has melted so much this week... call me what you want!
ALSO.... a little bit more of a manly side of Elder Langford here, we went on a blitz (meaning both of us went to another area to help out with the work and what they're trying to work on in their area). It was the first time in like 12-14 weeks that I've biked! When I got on, I told him "alright thunder thighs, show me what you got!" He did.
