BUSYness is BESTness

This week has been so packed. Well, actually, just the last day of it.

The week has been wonderful, all. The sun has shone all week, the weather's been getting warmer, the sun doesn't go down till 10 pm, and it's up at 7 am, (and getting brighter every day) and our week was Packed with stuff to do.

I was really grateful for the business. As our mission President says, "if someone who has to keep all the standards of a missionary (no TV, Internet, books, dating, schedule, so on) and doesn't have work, they're not a missionary. They're a monk".

In fact, we were thinking about it, and we're even less than monks. We don't get to nail theses to Chapel doors, or hold inquisitions, or get cruelly burned to death.

so, in conclusion to this thought, I'm glad is was a busy week.

Let me tell you about one day of it. Saturday. We had picked up a member to take to a lesson (the member in the photo. If there's anyone I want to be like immidiately after getting off my mission (besides Derick; Brian doesn't count because I didn't know him right off his mission) this guy is it. His name is Tsimmeej, pronounced chi-mang, and he's awesome. He jsut went back to BYU-I; Alaska is darker without him) and our Lesson fell through twice. (don't ask). Meng said, "Elders, When you're lessons fall through, and it's near lunchtime, the best thing to do is eat".

Sage words.

from that lunch, we ended up teaching a man at the Carls JR who wanted to know all about Mormons. It was amazing.

And from that day on, Everyone was home, and everything was amazing. great day. I thought about it like the Great Apostasy. God's not going to leave the Earth in darkness for too long. As dark as winter is, the Summer will come, and it will be bright and Glorious.

Anyway, My time is up, but it's been a great week. Never doubt that God is there and that He loves us, and that ESPECIALLY that He is aware of us when we struggle. Then, at a fast food place, God will send you a reminder that He loves you.

anyway, Love from the North,

Elder Darcey
