Simple Reminder

I'm so grateful for all that the Lord has given us, even though there is pain and affliction in our journey. Remember, we are here for a purpose. We came knowing it would be brief and tumultuous, but with the amazing opportunity to choose God and accept His richest blessings, far more valuable than any loot on earth. What a privilege to even be alive. What a privilege to be able to learn about Him and follow Him. God lives and Jesus Christ, His Son, the Resurrected Lord, answers all the pain and gives meaning to this life through the Atonement. What wonderful news!

The original post mentioned that I was testing my ability to send photos and text to this blog in spite of certain barriers. Needed to make a change for the photos to work and ran out of time, so just pulled them for now. Coming soon, though, I'll share some photos from another part of the world. Thanks, James, for the note and for reading the blog.

Thank you for the reminder, Jeff. Too often we lose sight of the true reason we are here. Also- thanks for such an interesting blog and evidences pages over the years.

Best wishes in your new adventure!

Surely, the most-missed part of faith.

Hope China's going well!
