Week 99 - Not a whole lot to say...

It's been 23 months since the very day I left for my mission.

23 of the most challenging, incredible, painful, easy, fast-moving, crazy years of my life...

All I can say is, man was it worth it. I have loved my mission [:

I feel like I have just learned, felt, and seen  SO MUCH.

 I find it hardly describable over a blog.

I can honestly say it has been the best two years of my life thus far. I have found a testimony that God lives. He is in the very details of our lives. Miracles surround us, whether we have the open eyes to see them or not.

 No matter who you are, where you are, or what you're doing, they are there;

and he is there. 
He loves us, so why wouldn't he be. It's not a matter of if he is or isn't. Of if he will or won't. I don't believe  it has anything to do with if he is there or if he will reveal himself to us. 

It's just a matter of opening your heart,
 to find and realize that he has always been;
 and that he will forever be.

watching. waiting. smiling. laughing. comforting. guiding.

Always in the details of all that we do.

Wouldn't you do the same for those things and people the mean the very most to you?

God loves us. Of that I have learned my last two years.

Ya'll mean alot to me. Probably more than you think. 
Thank you.

Week 95 - Long Live the Katy Zone

Hey, Apologize for getting this out a little late!

This week has been another great one! Christmas is always a great time. Even if you don't get to spend it with your family; though I will get to spend it with people that I have found a great love for. Eight Days Away! Woo!! Also, I apologize for my gifts for you all not coming until I get home. It costs way too much to ship things home, so I will just bring them in February! Thanks for understanding!

Anyhow though. Life is well. Miracles are happening. I love it.

Just know I love you, and am working hard. I apologize for not writing enough.

You all deserve more, but alas I still can't make any promises :) Don't take it personally!

Have a great week! Elder Whitney says hi!

Enjoy all these selfies that we took while preparing our report for Stake Correlation!

Love you guys!

Week 94 - Just prepping for Christmas

Let me just say, we've got an exciting couple weeks ahead of us. And ya'll are invited :
Sure hope you can make it! 

We as a zone are preparing a Christmas concert and devotional for the whole entire city of Katy. We are expecting alot of people, and it should be pretty incredible. Elder Whitney and I have been putting a lot of work in to preparing for this. 

We are planning to tell the story of the birth of christ from the viewpoint of the Bible and the viewpoint of the Book of Mormon, with lots of musical numbers in between. I'm super excited; and stressed too. Please pray for us!

The mission is incredible. I sure love you all.

I will be in Katy most likely for the rest of my mission, So feel free to write/send stuff here. Thank you for everything. You all mean the world to me. Sorry to not get much of a letter out, I've got so much stuff to plan for this devotional. Alot of it is on my shoulders.

Just know I love you! Have an incredible week!

The church is true. The book is Blue.
I'm a mormon and so if you're not you should be!

Week 93 - Happy Days!

Happy late Thanksgiving everyone! Sorry I didn't get some sort of letter or package to you all beforehand! Just know that I love you guys, and I miss you greatly!

This week has reminded me of how truly grateful I am for the many blessings I have in my life.

I am thankful that I will not ever be asked to give back what has been given to me, for truly I could never do that. Too much has been sacrificed on my behalf. Jesus Christ. Mormon Pioneers. Protestant Reformation. My own family.

I just want you all to know that I am giving the best I have to give back for the many sacrifices on my behalf. It will never be even comparative to the things done for me, but nontheless, I will push forward.

Thank you so much. I love you all! The Church is true.

Jesus is the Christ. God lives.
