So I wrote a letter to Alex this morning because I had a rough night and I wanted to see how she was doing. Last night I got pretty irritable with my district and wasn’t in a good mood at all. During my nightly prayer last night I pleaded with the Lord to have him show me of his love. I didn’t really receive an answer right then but I went to bed anyway. After I had woken up this morning and had written Alex the letter (best friend). Brother Ward a member of the branch presidency pulled me out of the class we were studying in and called me as a district leader! I accepted the call and immediately felt Heavenly Father’s love and the spirit confirmed this to me. So I’m District Leader of District 71-A now here at the MTC. Crazy right? The Lord answers prayers and I know I’m serving as District Leader because he loves and knows this is what I’m supposed to do right now. It’s crazy how the uneasiness I felt last night was the way the Lord was preparing me for this new call. Satan was doing everything he could to tear me down but he has no power over me! This church is true Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us! I can’t wait to hear from all of you.
