Here is my new Zone! :) We went on a hike this morning and did some caving. This is after we had just climbed out. Most of that mountain is in Mexico. :) Coronado Caves.

Hello ALL!It has been a pretty great week. Holding to all positives and really every moment had positives in it. I'd like to share one big miracle from yesterday. So yesterday was the Phoenix Temple Dedication and there were three sessions being broadcast from the Stake Center. We headed in for the earliest one and as we got out of the car a young man was walking to the church about to enter for church.
So as we walked up to the door this young man was standing to the side and the Brother at the door asked us to step over and talk with him. We had a good conversation, learned that he was going through a hard time and had a desire to learn more about what Mormons believe.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth isnot made perfect in love.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom hehath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
I really appreciate and love verse 20 especially because of the focus of loving those who are around us. If we don't love those who are around us, who we see everyday, who we may sometimes ignore, how can we love a God whom we have not seen? How can we love anyone else we have not seen? It also reminded me of a passage from C.S Lewis The 4 Loves. But I am out of time, and that is for a different day.
I just thought about this young man. If I didn't try and love God as imperfectly as I do. Then I wouldn't have opened up to love this person in front of me to help and offer to him something that will hopefully help him.
I love you all! Opportunities to serve as Christ does are all around you, take them, pray to be aware of them.
