This week finally got back to normal after Christmas and everything. And no we didnt get to stay up tillhaha but nobody wants to lose sleep so its all good. Hopefully I dont ramble too much but feel like i could write a page for everyday so I'll try my best
Last tuesday we got to clean the temple! it was way cool. we cleaned the chapel and a sealing room that was huge. it had like 50 chairs. But it was interesting to see like the inner workings of it all. then we were told we get to host new greenies tomorrow! i'm so excited! we get to yank them from their families! muahaha no but really it should be fun! Oh and if you don't think miracles happen everyday then youre wrong. my comp is like just as good as me at ping pong!! we played on that mini table set i got fro Christmas and we played for like an hour! i still think we were brothers before this life.
Alsowas the CTM presidency's last fireside. they gave a great mission conference and they get replaced on the So thats exciting i guess haha Then that night we had a devotional from the Chief Media president of missionaries. It was so interesting. he talked about all the videos the church puts out and the tens of millions of views they've received and how the church bought out the largest space in times square for the He Is The Gift poster and on new years eve when ever ryan seacrest was on tv the poster was RIGHT behind him in the shot haha they showed us a picture and it was so cool! look it up. then after we watched meet the mormons and it was hard to relive the missionary leaving but it was still really good!
I guess I'll end with a little spiritual thought. In class we were talking about the Book of Mormon and all the sacrifices that were made so that we could have it today and obviously we all thought about Nephi going back for the plates and moroni and joseph but then our teacher Irma Smith mentioned Emma smith! She was a trooper. She had to live in fear of wondering if joesph was going to live to see the next day, Everyday! she had to watch as most of her kids died at a very young age, she never even saw the plates, she had to watch as joseph suffered in liberty jail then live as a young widow, all for the restoring this church and the printing of the Book of Mormon. Amazing. I hope to have even a little of that much faith. Well the mission is great and I love it it! Its hard but worth it! Love you all!
