My Heart is Full

It seems as if all my prayers lately have been filled with pleadings to my Heavenly Father to help me be a more charitable person. Tonight our hometeachers taught us about looking for the good in others and expecting the best rather than the worst.
Here are some of the people at the Jerusalem Center that I absolutely love...
my beautiful, wonderful, incredible, practically perfect roommates

Dressed up as Hawaiian tourists for Hawaiian night

Nothing brings you closer than service
People here make me laugh so much. I love that.

As I am developing my relationship with my Savior in the Holy Land my capacity to love has grown so much. I am so grateful for Christ in my life. My roommate, Rachel, sang a beautiful musical number today of "Be Still My Soul"- one line stuck out to me "In every change, he faithful will remain" I know that every person on this earth is loved and that we always have the Savior with us through every moment in our lives. I am so grateful that the Savior can change people through his unwavering love. He is the perfect example.

I love you! You are such a good example to me. Not that I don't love all the adventures you're having, but when do you come home??
