Yea, I know that I am nothing as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.
Alright, and for the good part. If anyone asked me if I felt like I was crazy to go on a mission I would look at them like they needed to think just a little bit harder. Serving a mission has not only been the best decision of my life, but the best for my life. I know I've learned so much from the people here and the experiences that have strengthened my faith in our Savior. I don't want to know who I would be without having served a full time mission. I know even more now the blessings we can receive from LIVING the gospel, not only believing it, from STUDYING the Book of Mormon, not just reading it over, I've learned about patience, diligence and perseverance. You've got to give it your all. The gospel isn't just something you have to put on your wall or to put a skirt on once a week and say you believe it, you've got to DO it, it's a way of life, it's who you are, and what we stand for. I know that Joseph Smith is the prophet of the restoration, and that Pres. Monson is a living prophet who can receive revelation from God to lead us and guide us in the trials we face today. I know God loves me, not only cause it snowed in Utah!, but because he has made me worthy enough to feel the love he feels for the people here and in Ohio. I know families are eternal. I know la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Dias is the one and only true chruch on the face of the earth! Search, ponder, and pray about it and I promise you as a representative of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that you will receive an answer through the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I know, because it happened to me.
