16.5 Time flies

 When you come out of the storm, you wont be the same person who walked in – Haruki Murakami 
Great quote. Trials in life give you experience. Experience that you can use to uplift others to overcome greater hurdles and ultimately to make things better.
This week was dopeee. it was busy but i’m thankful for the many things we were able to accomplish in our area.

We had the 2nd mission tour of the year and E Craig Cardon of the seventy came to visit. The meeting was in Burlington (one of my old stomping grounds) and.. he wanted to meet the MLC group at 7am in the morning. waking up at 430am and driving on the 401 was probably one of the most tiring things i’ve done in a long time but it was definitely worth it. He shared some experiences in his life in which the principles gleamed will definitely help me in my life as well. He talked about the principle of self-reliance and how we need to let ourselves and the people we meet be self reliant and not be dependent on others for their progression. I feel that is so important and its something that stressed in the church. The things taught at church don’t make people better. people make people better, the church teaches correct principles to be better and helps people be aware on how to self govern themselves. Mission Tour was great though, i got the chance to see my friends from previous areas and we took many photos 😀

There was a wonderful experience shared this week about how a father rolled his car while sending his son off to the Missionary Training Center in Utah. The family was hurt but the injuries werent serious, unfortunately, the father passed away. As both mother and son were being treated for injuries, the doctor had to break the news to the 2 girls, aged 10 and 14. While the 10 year old burst into sobs, the 14 year old girl put her arm around her sister and told her that everything was going to be okay because their family had been sealed and started singing “Families Can Be Together Forever” softly to console her sobbing sister. Despite that story being over 20 years ago, there was a really strong presence in the room which personally told me that there was truth in those words. ahh, good times. 🙂
I’ll miss it.
Other exciting things that happened this week is that we’re meeting with Tyler and he rides/speeds down roads in a unicycle. i’m gonna try and convince him to let me try and ride it. hopefully i dont grate my face on the gravel.. i also rode in a back of a truck this week. haha cheap thrills
Hope everyone is having a great week!
