I Actually Wrote a Fairly Short Email This Time

Hey folks,

Guess who has no time? Surprise! It's me.

But. We had a good week. We got a couple members out with us to our teaching appointments, and Jamie (a guy we tracted into last week) came to church!!

Here's a quote from President Monson I like a lot and that I am trying to apply:

"Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved."

It can be so easy to forget that though, as catchy as it may sound. Life's problems can be so immediate and all-consuming in the everyday moments that we can easily forget the people who are right there before us. The Savior set the perfect example in this regard. He had many, many tasks to perform, but never did He ever let them supplant in importance the people around Him who needed His love. Nor does He let it happen today with you and me. He has so many tasks of cosmic importance to perform, and yet still He teaches us that we are His work and His glory. Let's all strive to be more like our Savior in that regard. 

I love you all! Make yourselves a great week!
