This week has been a good last week! Last saturday it POURED on us!!!!!!!! I went out for less than a minute, and I was so soaked that my hair looked as if i went swimming, and then elder lund and I had to go back and change ALL our clothes, including our garments. We were soaked clear through! So that was awesome, but then since we are on the bottom of campus, all the bark chips and stuff are now right outside our doors. Then, on sunday, we had an awesome talk from the mtc coordinator Richard I. Heaton on Prayer. He described how someday, when our name tags are no longer worn on our shirts, they will be engraved on our hearts. I hope to be the missionary that it is evident that the name of Jesus Christ is engraved on my heart. And then he explained that we can better our prayers and make them more sincere to help us build a stronger relationship with God. My prayers have really changed since I have been here, and i find that i am truly pleading with God for the assistance that I need, whether for the lesson we are teaching, or for the entire next day.Tuesday we also had an INCREDIBLE talk, but this time, it was a general seventy member, Elder James B. Martino, and I got to sit in the FRONT ROW and SHAKE HIS HAND. Haven't washed it since tuesday... totally kidding, that would be weird... One of the best things he said was that "our attitude dictates our altitude in this life" and that really opened my eyes. Too many people force themselves to live on the bottom because they refuse to have expectations that will allow them to truly grow and become successful. i hope that all of us can have an attitude that allows us to reach celestial altitude. I know that we really will be bless for keeping a positive attitude, and we will be able to help life those around us as well.
