We had a simple week this week!
We visited our regulars, and spent all the rest of the time contacting Spanish members from the
 Stake President's list. So many families are willing to give up their comfortable ward to create this branch!
So I have time to leave with you a quick thought.
The joys of service triumph the sorrows of trials.
Everyone has those times in their lives where they feel like the ant under the magnifying glass. On a mission, in school, in your marriage, in your workplace, in your family...doesn't matter. Life is hard. It can be happy. But it can also be sad.
In a former general conference, Elder Quentin L. Cook said,
"Our foremost gratitude should be for the Savior and His Atonement. We are aware that many who are listening to this conference are experiencing trials and hardships of such intensity that the underlying feeling in their hearts as they approach our Father in Heaven in prayer is “Hope ya know, I’m having a hard time...
...when our beloved prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, was asked on his birthday what would be the ideal gift that members worldwide could give him, he said without a moment’s hesitation, “Find someone who is having a hard time, … and do something for them.”
Sometimes we search for happiness through worldly means. Shopping...chocolate...the internet... all do not bring the same satisfaction that serving others bring.
So, whenever you think, "Hope ya know, Lord, I'm having a hard time." Follow the prophet's words, find someone who is having a harder time than you...and do something about it!
I challenge you all to do a random act of service this week. I PROMISE you, it will make the darkest day, just a little bit brighter.
Love you all.
