Week 79 January 4, 2016 "It is 2016!"

     It is 2016!!!! I go home this year... I never thought this year would come but hey it is here haha. This past year was full of a lot of ups and downs but I think I learned more this past year than I have in my whole life. The mission just teaches you so much, it is great!! It is kind of hard to believe that for this whole past year all I did was missionary work. It makes me tired just thinking about it haha but not everyone gets this much time to do missionary work all day every day so I consider myself pretty lucky. It is Mom's birthday this week so I just wanted to give a shout out to her! My parents are so old these days haha. They may both be around half a century old but they are healthy and most definitely dont look that old ;) I keep hearing stuff about America and am scared to go home because I dont want Clinton or Trump to be President haha. I honestly think Dad would do a better job leading America than those two crazy pants. What do you say Dad? The first Native American President? My New Years was good and was filled with a lot of good missionary work. On New Years Eve we did stickerboarding on Gangnam Daero and talked with a ton of people and a lot of them were foreigners. Since my bed time is at 10:30pm I woke up the next morning and didn't realize it was 2016 for a few hours.

     My message I wanna share this week is pretty awesome I will say. My mom sent me a bunch of quotes in my Christmas package and I read one this past week that knocked my socks off! I read it and immediately was like "that's a super good one!" It hit me deep down and I want to share the quote with you all. I dont know who wrote it but it goes a little something like this, "When you feel like you're drowning in life, don't worry- your lifeguard walks on water!" After reading this it made me remember how truly helpful, loving, and powerful our Savior is. I know we have a superhero on our side and His name is Jesus Christ, He is the only Begotten of the Father, and He will never forsake us.   

Happy New Year!!!!
