Church Basketball

Today I went to Pastor Dons church to play basketball. It was super cool. We played 5 on 5 with Pastor Don coaching us and before we started we prayed and after it was done he spoke to us and we prayed. It was really cool. I was the only white boy hooping it up. It was a really good time. Another day in the life of A Boy In The Mission Field

Today's Stake Conference

Today I woke up really early to be in a meeting with my parents at eight. Today we lost an hour of sleep however due to daylight savings so that made it even earlier. But today the presiding Bishop of the Church (Bishop Burton) came to Texas to speak to me and the members of our stake conference. He gave a wonderful talk about heading to the words of the prophets and how important they are, and how important they are along with scripture reading to live our lives in the way we should be living them. Bishop Burton is Emily Hafen's grandpa and I told him that I knew his granddaughter. That man has a wonderful spirit and he makes a great effort to help people feel his love for us and for this gospel. Hearing him speak was very powerful and hopefully that sticks with me for a long time because he was truly an amazing man. It has been another great day for A Boy In The Mission Field
