It is one of those inexplicable things in life that time gets away from a person the way it does. Exactly nine months ago today Elder Humes and I walked through the doors of the Provo MTC. I was about to say, where we started this journey, but on reflection I have to say it was only the start of the latest leg of our journey together! Dad was pondering the other morning and asking himself-- how did I get here? It's a good question to ask. And the answer is: by putting one foot in front of the other.
So what do we do with the next eight months, two weeks, and three days of our mission? The best answer to that one is: leave it all on the court. That means nothing left undone. Serve with every ounce of faith, good cheer, and trust in the Lord you've got. Make every minute count. Serve, in short, with your whole heart.
That is what we intend to do.
