emergency where someone had to go home, so I got transferred into his
area to replace him. Moving wards feels a bit similar to leaving home,

We had a tri-zone conference last week with Elder Dubé of the Seventy.
The rumor was that we were going to be getting Facebook, but that
didn’t happen. He talked a lot about how important it is to see your

Don’t ever be afraid to share the gospel. What is right is not always
popular, and what is popular is not always right. If someone tells you
that you’re a fool for having faith, don’t take their word for it.
Everyone is entitled to their beliefs, and religion is still vital to
the world we live in today, despite what some loud voices say. The
restored gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to unite everyone. If
you read the scriptures and pray, you will feel and know of God’s love
for you. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
