Thank you for the emails, prayers, and support. I am very grateful for the opportunity that I have to be here on the mission and more importantly to have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been thinking a lot recently about the importance of being obedient to the prophet and doing the simple things that we are asked to do. Reading our scriptures, praying, serving our neighbors. These are the little things that help us build are testimony. Every day we are either building our testimony or we are letting it die. There is no middle ground. You are either increasing or you are decreasing. In chapter 32 of Alma faith is compared to a seed. That when the seed is planted it is our job to nourish it and cultivate it. Because it is either growing or dying.
