Hello everyone! What a great week it has been. Honestly not too many stories or great content to provide for this week, but the work is moving. We had the blessing and opportunity to have both zone conference and interviews this week with President Ackerman, both of which events are spiritual powerhouses! We have been trying to help everyone as much as we can with anything we can! I will be frank with all of you, my peers, my time in Window Rock is running low! I am going to do my best to do everything I can for the wonderful individuals and families that reside in these bounds. And we will be working hard, there is no substitute for good hard work. I wanted to share something with all of you that I found in my studies recently! I was reading a talk titled, "Be an Example and a Light" by President Monson from October of 2015. As I was reading, this quote struck me and I love it. "My brothers and sisters, our opportunities to shine surround us each day, in whatever circumstances we find ourselves." Wow what powerful words from a prophet of the Lord! I loved that as a missionary, because obviously people are always watching us, but this goes far beyond the tag! For each and everyone of you, people are always watching whether you realize it or not. They see you do the things you do and determine what your character is, whether it is true or not. They see your actions and they decide how they want to act, and it will always be either similarly or differently. We need to realize the people we impact everyday just by what we are doing. Think about the people that you are surrounded by everyday. Your family, friends, coworkers, teammates, leaders, neighbors, and strangers. They all are watching to see if you will choose the right. So do it! Be exemplary and trustworthy for those that notice. Many will not notice, but enough will notice that it makes it a difference. Be that difference. Stand out from the crowd by standing up for the right. Now here is my joke for the week. Why should you never take advice from electrons? Because they are always negative. I love you all!
