I was nominated to do the Ice Bucket Challenge by my Mission President and my Mission Trainer… How could I say no?! Come on people, let’s raise awareness of ALS


At the center of the flowers, he found two people. Vin lay wearing her customary mistcloak, shirt, and trousers. Elend was in a brilliant white uniform, complete with cape. They were holding hands as they lay among the flowers.
And they were both dead.

Hypothetical scenario: say you got vocation after vocation, rising in the 'ranks' of the Church, eventually becoming prophet. Once you became a member of the First pres, it was revealed to you that the Church's true function is monetary; there is no 'God', or at least, it is not his Church. Would you continue on, knowing the Church brings enough happiness to justify its false foundation, or would you speak up? I'm not suggesting this is at all true btw, merely a scenario for self consideration.

If I was to “rise in the ranks” of the church, eventually becoming Prophet, only to find out that the Church’s true function was monetary…

Well, if I am honest, that is a tough question to answer. You see, I believe 100% in personal revelation and that I have received a witness from God that this is His church. Because of my belief in revelation I would like to think that I would continue on, until I understood God’s thoughts in the matter.
If I were to put Revelation aside though, I think that I would still continue on. If I was to become a Prophet I would have had to go through MANY years of service in church leadership, including Stake President, Seventy and Quorum of the Twelve. I would learn long before becoming the Prophet what the purpose behind the Church was. So in my opinion, if I stuck to it until I became the president of the church even though the church’s purpose was monetary, I would continue to stick to it even then. My Integrity would have already been undermined. I would have made a conscious decision to lead a monetary church, and after you’ve hurt your integrity so much, it’s hard to fix it up.

But I really do know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a Church led by God through His Prophet. It’s not the money that matters, but Principle behind the Widow’s mite, Sacrifice. As we sacrifice and are obedient to God’s commandments, he blesses us in unimaginable ways, he provides for our needs, and the windows of Heaven are opened. It is a wonderful thing.

Just got a new assignment from Bishop!

As well as having a calling which allows me to work closely with the Bishopric and learn from how they conduct their meetings, I now get an opportunity to work with the young men on assignment!
Not only will that keep me busy, but it will also help me to learn so much!
Just last night I was wishing I worked more closely with YM so I could encourage them to go on missions.
God gives according to the desires of our hearts!

Totally random but since I saw you served in the Manchester Mission, do you know an Elder Chong? I forgot his full name but I know him as Han. :)

Of course! I love Elder Chong! He is so funny. He was like… Our Mission’s chorister! I know for a fact he is sorely missed. He taught a lot of the chinese recent converts in the Manchester Mission, and was a great Mission Leader.

This weekend I was reminded of what kind of girl I want to marry.

It’s incredible how much impact a weekend can have on you!
Yesterday I was Best Man at my best friend’s wedding. In the evening I got to go to the Temple with them and participate in the Sealing Ceremony.
Today in Priesthood, the lesson was on Eternal Marriage.
In the evening, a returned Sister Missionary and the Sisters came over for dinner.
Also I watched Tangled! ;)

Throughout all those activities I asked myself “what kind of girl do I want to marry?!”
After the returned Sister Missionary left out house I realised that it is very easy to settle for what is around us, and what is here now. We can become so blinded by the outward appearance that we forget what matters most.
I cannot wait to marry a girl who has the Temple as her ultimate goal. I cannot wait to marry a girl who has a strong testimony of the Gospel and the Church; a girl who loves God more than she loves me; a girl who will have had many Spiritual Experiences and will openly share them with me; who has a passion for Missionary work and will help our family to implement a Family Mission Plan!
Those are some of the things I’m most excited for! :)
