|Sister Gibbs, thank you and may your burden be lightened.|
Tuesday was fun. At district meeting Speck set up a maze that we had to go through blind folded with our companions as the Holy Ghost to lead us quietly through. Of course I did it the fastest but then we had to do it while being asked questions. And of course, since I like to bash, speck had everyone gang up on me and bash me. Isaacson and Rasmussen tried but they couldn't stop me from finishing AND winning the bash. After that we went to Subway on a last second "prompting" from Rass. I say prompting cause as we pulled up, a group of young scouts were there. They're from Dallas going on a rafting trip and the leaders bought our lunch. It was awesome. We had great interviews with president afterward. The kids said we were the coolest elders they've seen cause we were all rocking sunglasses. I exchanged with Isaacson and had a church tour with Paula that was...less than great. She can talk your ear off and distract from the spirit easily.

|Well..see...uh...I have no explanation.|

|Because blankets bring the spirit...I mean rugs, definitely rugs.|
Something has definitely been addressed recently and I want to bring it up. Brother Anderson, the less active with the AR, made a very clear and true point. He feels people at church...don't look happy nor do they look like they're enjoying themselves or the spirit. I thought about that and I have realized how true that is. I had a whole paragraph typed out on why it's important to go to church and love it and it was kind of a throw down, But I think I can summarize it up in a couple scriptures instead. In Matthew 26, Jesus, while he was in the garden of Gethsemane, asked his disciples to wait. When he came back, they were asleep. In verse 40, He woke them up and asked Peter "what, would ye not watch with me one hour?" Can we not worship our God and Savior, with love and joy, for even one hour of sacrament? And If we aren't doing it with love, why are we going? I can tell y'all how much I know that church is important, but I want y'all to know for yourselves. Go to church, listen to what is being said. In the sacrament prayers, the talks, the lessons...the spirit. Learn what each have to tell you. And most importantly, love it. Do it all with a willing heart and love for our God. I promise that if you do this, listen, learn and love, then you can say as Peter in Matthew 17:4 "...Lord, it is good for us to be here...". Guys, I love y'all too much and pray for y'all every night. Go to church, love the Lord and endure to the end.
