I don't remember if I told you... but James is moving to Canada next week. So we just are trying to set him up for that. He is trying to quite smoking and we are sending him Book of Mormon scriptures everyday. So our goal this week is just to make sure he will meet with the missionaries in Canada.
I read some talks by Elder Holland that he gave to missionaries. So something I have been thinking about this week, is that this mission, and ultimately this church asks everything of us. God wants us to be fishers of men until the end of our lives. God wants us to work hard, be exactly obedient, and ultimately be perfect. The expectations are high, but the rewards are higher. I think I have felt that! I am often very tired, but the more I lose myself and work hard the more satisfied I am, and I can feel joy! of course I a far from perfection in anything, but honest striving brings joy!
Hurrah for Israel!--
