Praise My Soul The King of Heaven!!!!

So today was truly a historic day not only in the History of the Georgetown ward, but the Church itself! For the first time ever, two Apostles talked to a ward and us to them via live satellite video conference. I will not even attempt to say what was said there, as it is to sacred and too much to discuss, but can tell you that I felt the Spirit witness to me that these two men are called of God to be Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ, and were foreordained to be so. I know that the Church is true, as is the Book of Mormon and the Restoration of the Gospel.Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God. The truth is restored! . I bear witness of that fact in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen! Amen, Amen, and Amen!

These men are cool!

Brothers and Sisters...

Please pray for Saints and non-members alike in Iceland as they face these difficult times...pray that they may maintain peace in freedom in that beautiful land of theirs as they ride through the storms of a financial crisis that has rocked us all in some way.

Thank you.

A Historic Day...

I just had to say something about this wonderfully important day for the lives of Americans. I had the privelige of seeing the ending parts of the inauguration speech and the benediction, as well as the anthem, and words can not describe the feeling I got and still have. Whether they were my emotions or the Spirit, or perhaps both, I do not know. All I know is that I am honored to be just a small part of this day and to see the first black president sworn into the United States of America. All political views aside, I am proud and honored to live in a country where this day could be seen. It brings me back to MLK's speech about the promised land...I am sure that somewhere in the realm of the spirit world he was there that day...I wouldn't be surprised if there was a tear in his eye. May God Bless America, and help Obama choose what is best for his country. I give him my prayers, even while understanding that I do not hold all his views, as I wouldn't think a president would hold all of the people's views in the first place. I wish him the best on what surely is a long journey ahead.

Wooh! What a day...I think I've gotten a little bit of that nationalistic fervor my AP Euro History teacher was talking about :)

Well, that's it for now. I wish all the best this week in give my regards!

OK, so I'm finally going to post again...

Well, for the second week in a row there has been no church due to inclement weather, so I decided to take this time to try and catch up a bit!

Things at Church have been going just wonderfully! Since the last time I made a blog (before December) there have been almost 10 people baptized in our ward! Truly, everyone in the ward is getting into the missionary spirit and the work is paying off...It is a great time to be a LDS youth in Georgetown!

The Elders have started to teach my mother again, and it has been such a special experience for us both as we went to Church together for the first time and both felt the Spirit so strongly. Somehow I believe that the Spirit is stronger when you are with your family because it binds you together. There has been such an outpouring of support from so many in the ward and I just wanted to thank all of you for everything you have done.

This new year truly went off to a good start...I was able to find out about and see part of a new program that the Church did for the youth, and it had youth from all over the world! It was truly and edifying moment as I saw what looked like thousands of youth in the Conference Center as well as from Germany, Spain, Africa, and so much more! There is a cool widget they have on the site that can be found towards the bottom of this blog, be sure to check it out and check out the site!

As for things at home, all is going well it seems. I am in the process of finalizing my application for BYU-I and hoping/praying for the best! Well, I suppose that's it for today.

God Bless You All!
