The Hump

January 20, 2008 is our 1/2 mission mark. Insights and observations to this point:

  • The gospel is the answer to all of lifes complexities. It brings joy and meaning, comfort and solace, direction and strength

  • Missionaries are some to the most amazing people on earth - we still don't feel worthy to be counted with them

  • Miracles happen every day, every hour, every minute

  • People are wonderful in every location

  • The Church will go forward with or without us - we are overwhelmed with the magnitude of goodness and strength it demonstrates on every front

  • Families bring sweetness and goodness to life

  • Michigan is beautiful in all seasons

  • Missionary service is a blessing to body and spirit, brings purpose to each day, and makes us want to do more and become better

  • When we're engaged in a worthy cause, the hours and time expended becomes less important than accomplishing the task at hand

  • Mail and phone calls from friends and family have never been so appreciated

  • Simple things we took for granted have become much more appreciated

  • Life is good

  • The Lord is very kind to us

  • "The task ahead of you is never as great as the Power behind you"
