So Edmond is pretty fun, never been in such a small but so densely populated area! There's so much to do and so many houses to knock!
On Saturday we volunteered at a clothing closet, they had us sort and tag clothes in the back room. They also had the OU Texas game on ... oops I had my back to it mostly but we did see a few fumbles and a field goal. We also stopped by the office just in time to see our boy Jaylyn score a touchdown #soonernation
I've been thinking a lot lately about the past 16 months and everything I've learned and gained. it's amazing the experiences I've had and ways my life has changed. 16 months ago I could have never imagined it could be THIS GOOD. but it is. and it keeps getting better. I was reading in alma and I really connected with 5:43-51. it described perfectly my personal feeling about my mission and personal commission to preach His gospel. my mission is the greatest thing to ever happen to me. so much has happened in such a short amount of time. it kills me the clock keeps ticking, I've tried to stop it but it only seems to go faster. so now I just have to live every single second I have left as an ordained minister, doing everything I can to represent my Savior. moral of the story no matter what phase or stage of life you might be in: live like you where dying
43 And now, my brethren, I would that ye should hear me, for I speak in the energy of my soul;...
44 For I am called to speak after this manner, according to the holy order of God, which is in Christ Jesus; yea, I am commanded to stand and testify unto this people... concerning the things which are to come.
45 And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things whereof I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety?
46 Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God. Behold, I have fasted and prayed many days that I might know these things of myself. And now I do know of myself that they are true; for the Lord God hath made them manifest unto me by his Holy Spirit; and this is the spirit of revelation which is in me...
48 I say unto you... that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name.
49 And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation; yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again.
