Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

District Leader job has been going better and better. It has been
a pretty big challenge at times but I learn something new each time
and it's getting to be more fun :) I think i'm finally starting to get
a better hang of things so it's nice. In the beginning I wasn't too
good at handling the extra stress but now it is no problem :) I have really seen the hand of
the Lord in my life last week. I came to a very real realization of
the sustaining power of the Spirit. I was qualified in many situations
and given strength when I felt like there was nothing left. Oh and it
has been freezing up here but I am keeping plenty warm so don't worry
:D

Yesterday I felt in a more real sense that Jesus Christ is guiding and
supporting me. My companion and I were asked to give talks in
Sacrament meeting. I don't know why but for the last while I have been
more afraid of speaking in front of people. I was so nervous yesterday
and I was very worried. Then I tried to picture myself giving the talk
but also with Christ standing by my side as I did so. I felt calm and
at peace. I was able to give my talk and could testify of what I knew
was true. I know He was there with me :)

It's interesting how much you can learn in a very short period of
time. After a few experience's and simple prayer's I feel like my
understanding has grown and I've learned a lot. Learning Norwegian was
definitely one of those blessings that came after I did all I could
first. I am still amazed at the fact that I am able to speak another
language. The Gift of Tongues is a gift I know is real and comes from
Heavenly Father.

Love,

Daniel
