The Highlight of my week...

The Highlight of my week this past week was when I passed the sacrament with Muno on sunday. It was so cool. Especially since I havent passed the sacrament in ages. The spirit was so strong and it was special for me because I was able to share with the Muno the first time he was able to exercise his priesthood. He was really nervous about it at first and you should've seen us being bossed around by the Deacon's President lol. We didnt know what we were doing haha. But I thought it was so cool that these 12 year old boys really stepped up to their calling to make sure that the Sacred Ordinance of the Sacrament was perfectly passed. They were a great example to me of how we should honor our priesthood and make sure that we are prepared to administer the ordinances that are required. Afterwards I asked Muno how he felt and he explained to me how he really felt something and it was hard for him to explain in English but I could tell that it was a really special experience for him as well. I know that the Priesthood is the authority of God given to worthy men to do what HE would do if HE was here. I'm so grateful for how the priesthood has blessed my life in so many ways and it seems like just now as I am typing this that I am really realizing how much my life has really been blessed by the priesthood. I'm so grateful for a loving Father who has watched his worthiness to use his priesthood so that he could bless me in the times that I needed it most. For example the Father's blessings that were given each time I began a new year of school. I know that I was able to recieve strength to endure because of those faithful blessings. I'm humbled when I think that God has trusted me enough to hold a bit of his authority so that I am able to minister and administer to some of his lost children here in Australia. I know that the priesthood is real. I have felt it in my life. I hope we all take the time to think about how the priesthood has blessed each of us in our lives. I'm thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me even better than I know myself. I'm thankful for our Savior Jesus Christ who willingly came down and suffered for all of our Sins, pains, and sorrows so that through him we can be made clean and by his grace we can recieve strength to accomplish all things that the Lord requires of us. I know that Jesus Christ Lives and because he lives we can live too. Because of him my family can be together forever. I love this Gospel and I know that it is true. I love you and miss you all heaps. Cheers!

Stephen, YOUR A FREAKING LEGEND! I saw those baseball pics mum sent me and I feel like I was there. freaking amazing bro. Who do you think you are superman or something?
