the city; you name it, it's got it.) I won't include most of the details, but all of it has helped me sacrifice for my investigators. I can tell you this, all I know about a mission is that everything you do is a waste of time if you are not emulating the example of Jesus Christ.
And I will not dull the fact that if you are ever going to make a difference in this life, it will not be achieved by serving yourself. No matter your station, we must remember Jesus Christ, as innocent and justified as he was, still served his brothers and sisters. Reaching down from that higher plane, His love is a reminder of how rich true happiness is. It can be attained, but not by the world's standard. Wickedness never was happiness.
Temple - Biggest Comfort I've Ever Felt
The clearest place to feel God's love; unrestrained; is the Temple. Everything there is devoted to remind us of our Father, in symbols and covenants. Our Temple day is every two transfers. I haven't been to the temple in four months. The comfort I felt as I stepped in, was the biggest comfort I've ever felt. And I can only imagine what that must feel for others who have waited years, journeys, and trials of faith to go. Thankfully, I just had to carpool. I learn every time I go, from the House of God. It was no coincedense that Elder Bednar came to fireside of the 5Oth anniversary of the Oakland Temple. He was born in Oakland, and raised in San Leandro. Kinda surprising...went to church to the same chapel as I do... Loved his talks, talk later.
Love, Elder Li
