So yes. I am at the MTC. I have two companions, Elders Crandall and Christensen. Elder Crandall is from Plano, TX and Elder Christensen is from Portland.
I went to the Provo temple this morning. While we were waiting to start, I read the last few chapters of John, I'm not sure why. But the very last verse in John, the last verse of the gospels, really hit me. I don't have the verse here, but it said something to the effect of "These writings are not all that He did, the works of Jesus were so great, that I do not think all the world could hold them if they were written." I also started reading Jesus the Christ, and the intro tells that no matter what you believe of him, that he was truly an exemplary man. This just made me reflect on all he did to the uplifting of his fellow man, how much he humbled himself, as the King of kings, the Prince of Peace, and as the Son of God. It is a truly wonderful thing, to in every way, strive to become like Jesus.
