So that was the highlight of my week definitely. During church a guy came up to me and asked if I would speak in Primary to the little kids about how they can be a missionary and how I chose to be a missionary. So I stood up in front of all of them and told them about how if people ask them what they believe in and why they might not do certain things that they can answer and use it as a chance to be a missionary by talking about the church and inviting them to scouts or activity days or things like that. It was cool seeing all the kids' looks in their eyes :)
Speaking of missionaries, I got a letter from a really good friend yesterday telling me that they were thinking about going on a mission but weren't sure if it was right for them or not yet. Personally, I think they should. They would be a really great missionary and it will help them out a ton. But if any of you are thinking about going on a mission, and you're not quite sure if you should, GO FOR IT. What do you have to lose? NOTHING! :) (you definitely don't lose two years, (or 18 months) if anything you GAIN two years from all the experience and life lessons you get out here.) You learn how to manage time, manage money, build relationships, how to deal with being with someone 24/7 (hahaha), and most importantly you get closer to God and Jesus Christ than any other way. It is so rewarding being out here. I almost want time to slow down! I can't believe I'm coming up on 7 months here pretty soon. There's enough work here for a lifetime! Sounds cheesy probably, but there really is. :)
Have you heard "Come See the Light" by Clyde Bawden? I'M IN LOVE WITH IT. I'll try and send it to you! Ah!It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it.
I hope everyone enjoyed the extra hour of sleep! I always think of my Dad around this time of year, he hates when it gets dark this early! ;)
