January 4, 2016

Hey guys!

HAPPY NEW YEAR :)  2016.  That's cool stuff.

Anyway, my companion has been sick this week with some head stuff, but we're getting it all worked out.  The good news is that I got to study a ton this week.  I read a lot of things by the Prophet and Apostles, and one talk I really liked was "On Being Genuine" by Elder Deiter F. Uchtdorf.  He said:

"With patience and persistence, even the smallest act of discipleship or the tiniest ember of belief can become a blazing bonfire of a consecrated life. In fact, that’s how most bonfires begin—as a simple spark.
So if you feel small and weak, please simply come unto Christ, who makes weak things strong. The weakest among us, through God’s grace, can become spiritually strong.
The Church is not an automobile showroom—a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.
And are we not, all of us, in need of repair, maintenance, and rehabilitation?
We come to church not to hide our problems but to heal them."

It's an awesome talk.  Look it up if you can.

one time this week we did service.  It was legit.  I felt like Spiderman because we were on top of a roof.  I almost fell off once, haha JUST KIDDING MOM. But don't worry it was completly safe, and fun.

Love you all tons and hope your week is full of faith, trust, and pixie dust!
