President also told us about a fireside (devotional meeting) he assisted years ago, and the only thing he remembered from the talk was ''God loves a champion.'' President explained to us that we can be normal, or we can be amazing. He told us that he hopes none of us left our houses thinking that we were going to be normal missionaries or normal people in general. Some people are born with this drive, but the majority of people who have this drive develop it during their lives.
Jesus said that we are the light of the world and that we are the yeast in bread. In other words, He told us, ''I want my disciples to be champions!''
Well, that's my spiritual thought for the week. I just want to let everyone know that I love you guys and I'm grateful for the overwhelming love and support I feel from home. We're doing our best here to get the ball rolling and see that stone cut without hands come rolling down the mountain. Have a great week! :)
Love, Elder Jake Avery
