colo RAD o :)


well folks ( yes i just used the word folks) the time has come! I've been called to serve in the farthest mission west of utah.....

Colo rad o Springs, Colo rad o!!!!! haha :) :) :) I report to the MPfree on dec. 15th :) so if anyone wants to celebrate Hanukah with me... i'm down :)

I am so dang darn dang excited I can't explain the joy I feel.
That really is exactly it though....
I have no idea how to even write about how excited I am .... how right it feels.... how happy I am that i'm going to colorado etc etc etc without getting too in deep for a blog ha. if you wanna hear more... just call me up :)





p.s. I love this quote so much. I want everyone to be able to tell that I am part of the fellowship of the unshamed.



THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE UNSHAMED.

“ I am part of the fellowship unshamed, the dye has been cast out. I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or be still.

“ my past is redeemed, my presence makes sense, my future is secure. I am done with low living, small talking, colorless dreams, tamed visions, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.

“ I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, recognized praised, liked regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on his presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is heaven.

“ My road is narrow, my way is rough. My companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I canot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ.

“ I must go till he comes, give till I drop, preach till all know and work till he stops me and when he returns for his own, he will have no problem recognizing me, my banner will be clear. “



My banner is clear. I believe in Christ.

i luv kamping.

camping at lake Yuba was so intense! ....... in tents........ come on. :) teheee

haha but it really was... we woke up to frost on our pillows and it was freeeezing! but so stinkin fun. :)

A chance to see the stars, ponder, laugh, eat marshmellows, candy, diet coke, boy scout dinners, meet new friendlies, make goals.
It was just really really good.



Laura and Jordan were doing theLake Yuba sprint triathalon. Laura got 3rd place in her age division!!!!!!!! waaaaaaahoooooo!


I can't believe after we woke up to frost on the ground they were jumping in a lake and even more crazy i was jealous haha. I will do a triathalon some day


there were so many shooting stars it was so beautiful.


needless to say I was a bit excited haha.



another amazing weekend and blessed life I have!

Side thought: I have been so grateful lately for time to relax. To live with the freedoms I have like time to chill with my friends and family on the weekends etc. Some people work their whole lives and don't have that luxury. Hopefully I use the blessings I have to help others in return.

Best Moment in Provo Thus Far.

Last night my roommate Mary and I went to a cookie party at our neighbors house..... harmless enough right? I walk in and comment on how much I LOVE the poster of Dumbledore on the wall. ( being the obsessed Harry Potter fan that I am.) And...............then the person to my right says.... " that's Abinadi "


Oops.
