- Tuesday I lost in a game of chess. ..(Just to reassure you I'm definitely not good at everything..)
- And... General Conference was amazing. Seriously insane. 27 pages of notes (13 sheets) would confirm that for you, right?
- As well as... Transfer calls! They came! And.. I'm staying with Elder Ellsworth! Haha. But, alas, Elder Bryan is leaving (toward the Military Bases like Humphrey's), and Elder Light has been assigned to strictly work with deaf members in our ward. TOO cool. Elder Whitney will be coming to Elder Song (My trainer's third son) and Elder Lund will be Zone Leader with Elder Lion.
...Should be rad.
- Other than that, we've had a good week, and got a referral from the SLC Temple which should be super rad!

Who would like to receive some light?
Prayer is like a telephone call to our Father in Heaven and it needs everything a phone call has. Telling, listening, acknowledging, responding, explaining, expounding.. rather than just requesting. I like this quote by Howard W. Hunter, it says:
..With my imperfections, inadequacies, doubts and weaknesses, prayer keeps me going. It's that one thing that just simply doesn't change or disappear. It's always an opportunity for me to speak with my loving, encouraging Father in Heaven and walk away with an attitude of , "Yeah.. I get it. With you, I can." rather than succumbing to walking forward in the valleys and trenches of my trials alone.
I am confident that as you sincerely take the time to speak with your Father in Heaven about anything and everything you will will feel blessed, loved, encouraged, and comforted. Whether tears come, or you feel the peace of the Spirit inside of you, I promise you will feel His presence in your life and know of a surety that He loves and cares for you. So stand tall, on your knees, and you'll never have to walk alone.
The one and only (..neh, I'm sure there are others.. haha)
