I went to my friend Gil's baptism today and the spirit was so strong. Almost everyone who had been with him from the beginning in high school were able to be there (except for Andrew who is on a mission). There was so much love in the room and Gil was glowing. I feel lucky to be able to see a success from missionary work and I feel privileged that am able to participate in similar events for the next year and a half. Although I have been nervous about going on a Mission, today I was reminded that nothing beats the final products of missionary work and it is by far the greatest work we can do in this life. I cannot wait, only 2 1/2 more weeks!!!
