Happy Thanksgiving!

"I am just so grateful...which I guess is completely appropriate since it is Thanksgiving week. I forget about that sometimes, we work so much that holidays don't seem to make that big of a difference. But really, I am so grateful for the blessings in my life.

I am so grateful for the blessings of the gospel in my life. It is strange to see the gospel really take an "active role" in my life. I mean REALLY ACTIVE! But never have I felt such strength and happiness from knowing about my Savior.

So last Zone Conference, President Olson challenged us as an ENTIRE MISSION to re-read the Book of Mormon in 2 transfers. He gave us all blue copies of the Book of Mormon that we pass out, and a red pencil. He said to only highlight the names, words, actions, or things relating to Jesus Christ. He really wants us to build our testimony that the Book Of Mormon is a TESTAMENT OF JESUS CHRIST! I am staying consistant on my reading and it is a miracle the answers to my questions I find, and how much the Book of Mormon talks of Christ!

I really and truly LOVE my mission. The experiences, the growth, and the Spirit, and Service...it's all so worth it! It is hard, really hard sometimes, but it reminds me of Ether 12:6. It is those hard times that lets us grow and develop. If it wasn't hard, I don't think I would love it so much!

Happy Thanksgiving!
