Hurrah for Israel!
Those words sum up pretty well my feelings of why I'm here and what I'm striving for as a missionary. When Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball left to serve a mission, they were deathly ill and leaving behind their families who were also deathly ill. And yet, they stood in the back of that wagon and shouted, "Hurrah for Israel!" What does that mean to you? To me it illustrates the value of sacrifice and the need to be anxiously and selflessly engaged in the Lord's work.

This morning I was reading the words of Isaiah in 2 Nephi. I'm coming to love Isaiah! I am blown away by how much I understand what he's saying. A lot of it applies so directly to missionary work, it's awesome! 2 Nephi 8:12-16, 24-25 particularly spoke to me. It was really motivating and encouraging. I invite ya'll to read it and apply it to yourselves.
We went to my first mission, other than the Alamo last P-day. It was really neat.
Not a whole lot really happened this week, so this is kind of a brief update. But I remembered pictures! I'm so glad to be here serving the Lord and His children. I know that this is His work. I love you all! God bless!
