Week 74, January 2, 2017


Companion:  Elder Lee

Date:  January 2, 2017

Wow so crazy that it is a New Year! All I am really going to write about today is what I have learned this last year being on a mission. When I look back to when I started this year all the way back in Green Bay, I am shocked of how much I have changed. I have truly learned so much in just one year. 

I want to talk about two men who have influenced my life completely. This isn't to say nobody else has, because trust me so many people have helped change my life. The first is President Cutler, that man is amazing. The spirit he has is so amazing. All of his trainings I have heard and for the wisdom in that man. He has showed me what truly matters in life and to stay focused on those things! He gave the Lord his whole heart for 3 years and the Lord did wonders with him! I know he was called of God, I look to him as an example every day! I truly know "Family Life is Eternal Life" -President Cutler

The next man is President Williams, now I see the same qualities in him that I did in President Cutler. The thing that he has done for me is something I can barely put in words. The love that radiates from that man is so real. His leadership qualities are truly those of the Saviors. He has helped change my life in a way I wish I could express in words, he will never know what a difference he has made in my life. He has set me on the path to God. He has helped me realize so much more of what the Atonement is and what it truly means to me! 

With both these men we have created truly a Father and Son bond. They have stepped in and been that Father figure for me while on my mission. I don't want to discredit at all what my Dad back home has done because I love that man with my whole heart and he is also one of thee greatest examples of my life and is why I made it out here! I just know that I was called to this mission so I could be blessed with two amazing Presidents who would alter the course of my life! Because of their testimonies mine has grown! I know with my whole heart that this is Christ church. I know that the priesthood which I hold is the same priesthood that Christ himself gave to his apostles and with it families are made eternal. I am so grateful to know my family is going to be with me forever and I will do all I can to make it so I have one of my own as well! I love my Savior Jesus Christ, I love His Church! I love you all as well and I hope you have a great new year! Make some sweet goals and don't quit on them!
