I went back to one of my old area’s this past week. Remember when I
was serving in Indiana? I was there on my year mark!!! Tender mercies,
I tell you. I recorded myself that day just expressing how I felt.
Hopefully it works so you all can see it.
We had zone meeting this past week and something that I heard that I
loved and that I’ll always remember and apply is that I will never be
one of those RM’s that go inactive. I love this. I love what I have
and I’m going to keep it. I’m not going to change and if there is a
change in me, it’ll be for the better. Decision made 🙂
On Monday my zone and I made a trip to the zoo. AND THERE WAS A SNOW
STORM! Believe it or not, that’s what made it so epic and memorable.
It was kind of like Night at the Museum. Nobody would go to the zoo on
a Monday out here in Chicago while there’s a snow storm except for a
group of missionaries 😀 This zoo is open 365 days out of the year AKA
all year round 🙂 We had a blast.
My companion and I have learned MUCH patience and humility.. not
because of each other but from situations that we run into. She’s the
greatest! I couldn’t imagine going through this transfer with anyone
else but her! Laughing is what gets me and her through anything.
Yesterday I felt like my testimony of our prophet today was put to the
test… and TWICE! In two different lessons. I have absolutely no
doubt that President Thomas S. Monson is the prophet today. When I
hear him and his counselors speak at conference, there’s absolutely NO
WAY I can deny that they’re truly men of God.
