Day 3

Well, we are doing well.  Today was spent learning about "Preach My Gospel".  Today thru Thursday we will be giving lessons to "investigators".  This aspect of our training scares Mom the most.  But today she did wonderfully and I love her as a companion.  When she bears her sweet testimony, it brings tears to my eyes. It was a long day....more coming up, but it was sweet and inspirational. 
When I think of all the Priests I taught through the years about serving a mission and what their experiences would be like in the MTC, little did I know how powerful this place is.  It radiates power, dedication and love for the opportunity to serve.  Everyone is always smiling...no discourgements felt and the spirit of the Lord is sooo strong. I don't know why I am getting so emotional when we sing at the MTC Devotionals, but tonight was no exception. We sang "Each Life That Touches Ours for Good"
"Each life that touches ours for good
 Reflects thine own great mercy, Lord.
Thou sendest blessings from above
Thru words and deeds of those who love. 
What greater gift dost thou bestrow,
What greater goodness can we know
 Than Christ-like friends, whose gentle ways.
Strengthen our faith, enrich our days. 
When such a friend from us departs,
We hold forever in our hearts
A sweet and hollowed memory,
Brings us nearer, Lord, to thee. 
For worthy friends whose lives proclaim
Devotion to the Savior's name,
Who bless our days with peace and love,
We praise thy goodness, Lord above." 
We love you all and feel your prayers...thank you for your loving support.

  1. Love hearing about Mom bearing her testimony and how it affects you! Having a sole purpose must provide such peace and clarity on what's truly the most important in this life.

    We love you.
