Hi, I got to go to the Denver temple on Saturday. The Denver temple is tiny compared to utah temples. We went through a session and the screen was like a twenty inch projection. I couldn't tell who was who on it. But it was really cool to be able to go to the temple and feel the spirit that is there. We can go about every 6 months. But my companion is going again before he leaves so i get to go again this month. We went there with some members who used to be temple workers. They were old and reminded me of you. haha. cuz they are temple workers. Me and my companion are doing good. We are not very much alike but we stil do the work so it is ok. He keeps me obedient which is what i need so thats all i can ask for. So last week we had a thunderstorm that was absolutely crazy. It lasted for about and hour and a half and i thought i was in hurricane kutrina. Luckily we were teaching an investigator during some of it but while we were teaching the windows were open and water came i'n like a humidifier. it felt really good. When we left the streets were practically flooded and we could barely get our car to go. We could have used a canoe to travel to streets. The thunder here is so loud here too. It feels like the lightning is like right outside the house because when it hits it sounds like fireworks are going off immediately after. Its awesome! But the person that we were teaching during the strom was really awesome. Her name is renee Alvarez and the last missionaries tracted into her. Gave her a Book of mormon and she has been reading it and stuff. When we taught her the restoration, it was awesome. She was like yeah i know that everything you have been talking about is true and that joseph smith is a prophet. haha I was like What did you just say? haha it caught me by so much suprise cuz you don't here that very often. We asked her to get baptized but she said she will have to think about it some more. I think she will definately get baptized though, she is an awesome lady. She is just really really busy. That would be awesome if she does though love you. Love elder Gnehm.
