Mission Call

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on earth!

I got my mission call just over a month ago. Time definitely flies! I will help to move the truth along in Southern Concepcion, Chile :)

I am way way way way stoked! It's a little strange, because I'm already feeling sad for when I have to leave Concepcion in two years, and I have not even been there yet. I'm starting to love the people there already, and I have been praying regularly for my future investigators, that they will be prepared to understand and accept the greatest news they will ever hear.

Here are some scriptures that I have recently found to be amazing:
Alma 17-18 - Ammon is awesome and wanted to stay in the land of Ishmael and teach the people, so he becomes a servant to king Lamoni. Because of his amazing acts of service, Lamoni was "astonished exceedingly" because of how humble and dilligent Ammon was. He heroically saved all of the king's flocks (and cut off a few arms in the process) and then he continued to do his duty of taking care of Lamoni's horses and chariots. Lamoni could not believe that someone as strong and mighty as Ammon would still be serving him faithfully by taking care of his horses. He then asks for Ammon to be brought to him, and asked him why he is the way he is. He taught Lamoni many powerful truths, and Lamoni believed them all. He pretty much summed it all up in Alma 18: 34-35. What a stud! Ammon was so effective in his missionary work because he loved the people, served them, and then taught the truth through the Spirit. This is the pattern that we should ALL follow as members of the true Church of Jesus Christ!
I would strongly recommend to everyone single person who is reading this right now to read the Book of Mormon. It is true. I know it is. There is NO WAY Joseph Smith wrote it. If you read it, and pray with a sincere heart to know if it is true, you will gain a testimony and know for yourself of its divine origin.

Fun Day

Just yesterday, me and my family were celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday. Something very strange (for my family at least) happened! We started with dinner; hogies. Nothing too out of the ordinary. Then we moved on to cake and ice cream. After that, presents. For some reason, after we were finished watching him open presents, a dumb joke was told about some dude. Another one was told about him, and another, and it continued on. Within only a few seconds, we were trapped in a giant whirlwind of jokes about none other than the one, the only- Chuck Norris. Everyone was dying of laughter, and at the end of many jokes, we had to remind ourselves that we weren't having a party for Chuck Norris, but my brother-in-law! Here are some of jokes that made us laugh the hardest:

Chuck Norris CAN believe it's not butter.
Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.
Some people where Superman pajamas. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.
Chuck Norris can blow bubbles with beef jerky.
Chuck Norris once kicked a horse. Its descendants are known today as giraffes.
Chuck Norris sleeps with a pillow under his gun.
Chuck Norris can set ants on fire with a magnifying glass. At night.

They're not even that funny! But they really are :)

It seems, lately, that I have been losing wisdom. I'm not sure exactly what is causing this, but I'm a little worried. I used to be the wisest guy ever, but not so much anymore. If you have any advice, I'd love to hear it.

Also, a couple days ago I got all four of my third molars extracted from my's been a slow recovery, but at least it's coming along!

Details About My Life

Hello, my friends and family (actually I'm pretty sure nobody has ever even looked at my blog so this is really just me talking to myself) (but it's good that no one has looked at it because it's pretty lame), Is it bad that I don't like spending a long time writing things, especially when they are pointless? Because nobody is going to read this post, but I was still going to write a detailed description about my two jobs and how my life is going right now and what my goals are and what aspects of my life I am working on and what I like to eat and the different people I tend to hang around and do things with and who I admire and what I do in my spare time. I don't think I will though. Such a waste of time since no one is going to read this anyway.


(First post ever!)

Today I drove all over the place and finally finished everything for my passport application! I'm pretty excited. I filled out the application, got my pictures taken (I didn't know whether I was supposed to smile or not, so it's kind of an in between weird-lookin' face), went to the post office and got my money order, dug up my birth certificate, and then finally turned it all in! I should get it in about six weeks. Hurray!
