The following poem is one that I wrote for the Hunter's, a senior missionary couple who will complete their mission in a couple of weeks. I've been able to serve alongside the Hunter's for almost 6 months now:
The prophet Jeremiah once foretold
The Lord would send the Hunters and fishers.
You heard the call and came up to the cold
And bid farewell to friends and well-wishers.
Dear Hunters, how we've loved your presence here,
But Canada Vancouver won't forget
The service you have rendered us this year,
And so our hearts will always be tight-knit.
Wherever you are called to serve our God,
You'll always be a part of Delta Squad.
Anywho, Merry Christmas everybody! Also, a happy Winter Solstice! It is crazy to already be in the second Christmas of my mission; surely the calendars lie to me this season, because I cannot conceive it to be the end of December already.
Today is going to prove to be a very busy P-Day, and a busy week, so thoughts today are a little unorganized. It was a wonderful week of miracles; we had another fantastic zone meeting, went on exchanges with the Assistants, sang in our Sacrament meeting, and set a date for baptism with one of our friends over the phone last night.
Here's a couple of great quotes that I've received this week:
"When life hits you with a wave of stress, pick up a surfboard."
"Success isn't what's etched on a chart. Success is what's etched on your heart."
"Sometimes God parts the Red Sea, and sometimes He gives you strength to swim."
Love you all! Merry Christmas!
