Why a mission?

The gospel is the most beautiful thing in the world. I know it's all true, and this knowledge has given me all the wonderful things of this life. I can't wait to share this knowledge with others.

August 26th Update

This week was a week of miracles. One of, dare I say it, the best weeks of my mission? :) And do you want to know what? It's because we're working with the members. And it rocks. 

Real leadership happens when Heavenly Father teaches you how to have success, and then you share that. You share it with your kids. You share it with your friends. That's real service. And do you know what the real way to have success in this life? It's the gospel of Jesus Christ! It's faith, repentance, renewing baptismal covenants or making them, listening to the Holy Ghost and doing to things to keep it a part of your life, and to keep doing all those things. THAT is only doctrine, the advice you need. There are a million other opinions and advice about how to have success or how to be happy, but really if you can do those 5 steps, you're nailing it. Heavenly Father has commanded us to do it, and if we do it, we will be blessed. We've got to patient sometimes, but the blessings. always. come. Believe it! Test it out!

Mariana is still a rockstar. I totally know she's going on a mission in a year. We've been finding some great people to teach by working with the members. I love being a missionary, and I love the things that I've learned that I know I'll apply for the rest of my life. 

I love you so much, and I hope that you take time to look for the little miracles that Heavenly Father does in your life. They're there. The trick in life is to look for them, and realize that you can't do everything. And that's okay. Because He'll pick up the slack.
