Empire Mine or Bust!

Good Afternoon Family & Friends,
I sit down to type up my emails...and never remember what I did during the week. Time is flying by so fast! I feel like it was yesterday I was driving home to open my call letter. I had my Mission President Interview this week....amazing! I just love President Marston! 
This week was a normal week of missionary work, which was great! No meetings=a great week for Sister Reber:)!
Today we were able to go to Empire Mine with R. It's one of the biggest Gold Mines in California. It was so much fun to see and to spend time with R before transfers come. 
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Sorry for no interesting email this week!

On the 6th of April, 1830 The Church of Jesus Christ was officially organized, starting with 6 members.
April 6, 1841 The cornerstone ceremony for the Nauvoo Temple took place for the first time.
April 6, 1893 The Salt Lake Temple was dedicated.
April 6, 1941 General conference was broadcast outside of Utah for the first time on the radio,
April 6, 2000 President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Palmyra New York Temple.
Today, April 6, 2015 The California Roseville Mission was able to spend a day in the temple together. What a spiritual experience. It was so special, in so many different ways. Over the past few weeks, since our good friend Dave passed away, I , with a wonderful women in our ward, has been working to complete Dave's family history. Today we were able to do endowments for 21 sisters and 29 males, waiting on the other side of the veil. What an amazing experience to be apart of. This morning as I was getting ready I couldn't help but think about those Angels, getting so excited that today would be the day they would receive their next ordinance. Can you imagine the family reunion, all 50 of them, must have had in the Celestial Room today?
As for me, I will never forget entering into the celestial room, seeing President and Sister Marston there waiting to greet me. I couldn't help but grin with joy as I talked with them. The love they
have for each one of us is amazing, they are truly examples of Christlike love. They say they love us like their own children and it is true. We couldn't be in better hands. After talking with them, I
looked around the room. A roomed filled with disciples of Jesus Christ, from all over the world, with different backgrounds, different stories. Today we were equal, all dressed in white, we were one big
family. I am so thankful for all the friendships, or family, I have made on this mission. I will tell you one thing, I want to be in the celestial kingdom!

This week has been a spiritually draining week. Have you ever been fed so much spiritually that you are just drained? It's an amazing feeling!
General Conference was amazing! I was able to receive answers to my questions and prayers, I learned new things, and know that every word we heard was inspired words from our Loving Heavenly Father. We attended MLC in Gridley this week. We were inspired and spiritually
fed about this work. Again, I am so grateful to be on my mission at this time.

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Thanks for you're love and support!
