Serve well, David. The experience will only make you a stronger individual. It
will cut the ties you think you can't live without, and will give you a
whole new life, new eyes, and open a whole world of possibilities above any you
ever thought possible. May you share the sweet and simple truths of the Restored
Gospel, that Christ Lives, that he continues to lead and guide prophets on the
earth today, and that each person on this earth is a child of a loving Heavenly
Father and can receive a witness of their own through simple obedience and
humble heartfelt prayer.
Thanks for your example! Stay humble and let His Light shine whereever you
serve. Fourtyfive years ago I stopped two missionaries on the street to tell
them how wrong they were... I heard answers to my questions that I could not
deny, although I wanted to. Little over a year later I was on my LDS mission. I
cherish and honor my missionaries who brought me the Gospel. AND my mission is,
and will remain, as the most important part of my development in the Gospel and
in life. Follow Him and you will be one of His valiant servants.
