Every day brings different challenges to us. We serve when we are tired. when we are weary, when we are discouraged, when we are worried about things back at home. How do we overcome this discouragement? Discouragement is of the Evil one. We pray; we read our scriptures; we serve to the best of our abilities; we rely on the Lord for our help to carry on. Today Darolyne taught two young girls from Iowa, they were in there early 20s, they came here to go to the Canyons. They were touched by the spirit as she took them through Brighams' house. She was able to place the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smiths' testimony with them and they seemed quite receptive. I taught a friend from Orem John Aldrich and a lot of his friends. John just opened up a branch of his First Colony Mortgage Company here in St. George. As we serve, at the end of the day we are happy we came on our mission. We have the courage to get up and do it all over again. we have 6 weeks left and in a way we are feeling sad about leaving, yet we would like to go home and see our family.
