This week was busy, we had a lot of service! We met with a
lot of less actives. Which was one of our miracles. We committed and had three
less actives come to church, all of them are progressing really well. One of
them we had the chance to go to the temple and walk around on the grounds with
him. It was super nice! We also did a lot of service this week. I got to help
interpret for a deaf member signing up for YMCA. This member is actually super
cool! He is a Olympic Basketball player from way back when, he actually won in
85. super cool, he was going to play in the NBA but then he failed a drug test
and couldn't. Super sad, it would have been awesome to see that. But Now he was
found the church got baptized a little over a year ago and we are helping go to
the temple. It is amazing the change we can see in the people we see and meet
and work with. The biggest quote I used this week was this "Would you
rather be right, or happy?" The truth and lesson we learn from this is
sometimes for the sake of being happy we have to live with the fact that being
right sometimes isn't always the best thing. To choose and allow ourselves to
be wrong and to let someone else "win" is hard, but is it not better
than to arguing and trying to prove ourselves right? While this sounds silly it
is actually really hard for some people. I invite those people to pray and ask
for help to do that.
