Afternoon friends and family.
So p-day got changed to today and I had the opportunity to go to the salt lake temple today! My 2nd favorite temple. Luckily, I got the package that my mom sent me just in time to take the names she threw in there. I got the chance to go through the temple for one of my ancestors and provide that saving ordinance for them because they never got the chance! Going through the temple for someone related to you is so cool because often times, you can feel their spirit there with you and just knowing that you helped them to gain access to the highest degree of glory is truly amazing. And what better way to spend your birthday as a missionary than at the temple?! On a funnier note, there's a guy in my area named brother summers and he is kind of a fashion guy but he is like 45 and he gives us rides places when we need to get somewhere and this week we got into his car and he knows I'm big into fashion because of my skinny ties and skinny pants and everything slim fit and he was like "Elder bowler, ever since you've been in this area, you've made me feel insecure about my fashion and the way I dress because I'm always wondering if you'll think it looks good or not so I got dressed early this morning to make sure I matched and looked my best today." Hahahahahahahaha it's always good to hear that you're making people look better for you! Me and my comp just about died when he told us that. It's been an awesome birthday so far and I'm so thankful for all of the birthday wishes. You guys are honestly the best! Not too much to write this week... If you ever have questions for me about anything, just shoot me an email. I love to hear from you guys!
Love Elder Bowler
