As usual, I dont know where to start..So I'm going to start with the balling session I just had. 3 hours of straight Can't Guard Me in the gym! I caught an alley oop on someone in my district and made another fall, it was great. So these past 2 weeks of no gym was so good for me. No more ankle problems (well except for the members in my district) haha and my back is feeling great!But on a more serious note, this week was awesome. So I was supposed to be released as district leader because it is only a 3 week assignment but they told me they wanted me in longer, so that made me feel pretty good! Im super happy about that, I love my district and I love serving them. Yeah we have a lot of fun, but let me tell you, we bring the Spirit really strong when its time to work and focus!Something I read and started thinking about alot! These 2 scripture passages in D&C- 128:22 and D&C 31:1&13I love these scriptures sooooo much and I read them every day! I can promise with surety that I will never go backwards and I will always press forward with steadfastness and faith in Christ. And when I do this, it is ON, ONTO THE VICTORY!! Jesus Christ says that if we, as missionaries and members of the Church, are faithful and diligent then He will be with us unto the end! I already feel so many blessings from serving my Heavenly Father and there is no where in the world that I would rather be!So I was walking to lunch the other day and I passed a picture with Moses 1:39 and the prompting came to me- Jesus Christ's whole Work and Glory becomes mine, as His representative. I really thought about that and know that at 6:30 every morning when that alarm clock goes off, I hop out of bed, pray, and do everything I can to make sure I fulfill my call and responsibility. In 2 years, I will look back and say that I did my best, and that The Lord will be pleased with me! Something else I do is carry my Dad's missionary tag around with me, I will attach a picture of why. But every time I put my tag on and think about the type of missionary my dad was and the type of missionary my Heavenly Father needs me to be, I want to work so hard!I love you all! THANK YOU to everyone who writes to me and sends me packages, I love it and it is so comforting to know how much support I have behind me!!Talk to ya'll next week,#CantGuardElderYeoman
