DC Week 52!--February 3, 2014

Hey Fam! 

Guess what? I miss you. I miss you a whole lot! Today, I just wanted to share a few thoughts.
So a few weeks ago, I read the crowning part of the Book of Mormon, where Christ visits the Americas. After establishing a new law, and healing their sick and afflicted, and teaching them, and loving them...He departed. Then in Fourth Nephi we read what happened next. We read of the generations immediately following the coming of our Savior. And roughly one hundred years later, the people were still harmonious. They were still a loving and prosperous people. I then came across this scripture, and I thought it was really cool, so I will share it with you:

4Nephi 1:17 

"There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in aone, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God."

Family...let's not establish "ites" among us. Let's instead, become united in purpose and in love for one another...as Christ taught us. That’s all we strive for on the mission. Unity. Unity in companionships (Hna Piri and I had an intense comp inventory this morning—so worth it though, haha). Unity as a district. As a zone. As a ward. Unity with the Spirit. With our Savior. The list goes on and on. How would our lives be different if this was our mindset every day? If this was our daily “goal”? Please, accept the challenge to destroy any “ites” in your lives, and I promise your world will be a better place because of it. J

That's my quick thought to you this week. I love you. Make it a good one, ok?
