Haha Iz I am so so proud of you and it's a bummer I couldn't be there, but I can feel your spirit and I know that you are blessing others' lives though your amazing talents. IZ, I AM SO SO PROUD TO BE YOUR BROTHER. I love and miss all you guys so much. I hope all is well and I hope you had a great week!

This week as I was reading in the scriptures I came across a part that I want to share with you.
The Lord is asking the brother of Jared a question and I think we all can l learn something from this question.
23 And the Lord said unto the brother of Jared: What will ye that I should do that ye may have light in your vessels?
As I read this verse of scripture, the Spirit taught me something that I won't forget. The Lord is asking us here, "What are you going to do in order for I (the Lord) to help you in your efforts in accomplishing the things that I have commanded you?
What are you going to do in order for I (the Lord) to help you in your day to day efforts?
What are you going to do in order for I (the Lord) to grant you your blessings?
I don't have a lot of time but I love you and pray for you everyday.
Love Elder Cole Thomas Johnson
