 Nothing too adventurous to talk about this week. This upcoming week however we've got a lot going on. We have a MLC meeting with Pres. Blair, then exchanges (where we go with another set of Elders to help train and learn about Missionary Work), then Zone Interviews where the Missionaries by Zone meet with Pres. Blair and get a personal interview with him. Pretty busy.    We leave tonight to go down to Manchester to stay the night down there for MLC tomorrow.
  Anyways, I really don't have much to say! I'm alive, I'm working, everything is going upwards for me! Hope everything is good for you as well! I studied from Pres. Uchtdorf's talk entitled, "He Will Place You on His Shoulders and Carry You Home". It's a way cool talk. He testified that Obedience to the commandments of God isn't there to weigh us down, but it's there to lift us higher. God, He adds, making things Good. God is there to build us up. He lifts us higher than we can possibly imagine. All we have to do is trust Him. Believe that He is truly there, and that He truly will answer His promises. As long as we trust God, and all He has said, which is a hard feat, I understand, but God doesn't make anything impossible. When we trust Him, we'll be blessed beyond imagine. Just think of all the things in the universe; the numberless planets, the countless stars, the seemingly never ending Cosmos created by a Supreme Being. Of all these things, guess what matters most? His Children. Us. God cares most about us. In the midst of this infinite universe, God reaches down today to help you. He is always there, always willing to help. He loves you more than any of us can comprehend. Trust him. He'll always know what to do. We can start today, trust Him now. If you want to be happy in this life, start today by trusting God. He sent His Son to give us the way. Follow Him. You won't make it back going any other way. There is no other way nor means to return to Heavenly Father, only in and through the Atonement of His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. I know that is true, if you can't feel God's Love for you today, Ask Him why. Ask Him if He is even there and decide for yourself how much He cares for you. I know He does. He'll always answers our prayers, our pleadings. When we cry when no one is around to see, God is there. He never looks at us with scoff or scorn or makes fun of us. He is there to love us. To let us know He is there. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Have a great week. Elder Adams
