Hey Everybody!

Elder Frame here and just wanting to let you all know that it's been the good life out here in good 'ol
California.  It's perfect weather right now!  I love it so much! ("It" as in the weather and the good life!)

It's been a great week!  Working like crazy, the World-wide Missionary Training, President Interviews, Teaching, Testifying, and just feeling the spirit like crazy!  Such a great life!  It's no wonder that people always tell you that they enjoyed their missions so much!  I've found throughout my mission that everything that people have told me it would be has come to pass and more!  It's been the best thing ever.  Haha, I think I say that every week, but it's true. Don't think I'm just saying it out of habit or just to sound good.  It's honestly been the best, hardest, funnest, and craziest thing I've ever done in my life.  I can say that I've truly found who I am and who I'm supposed to be through this.

Matthew 16:25

"For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it."

It's the same thing for everyone.  We are Christians and saints 7 days of the week.  Not 3 hours of one day.  We as members of the true church know that we've made a covenant to ALWAYS remember Him.  That's exact obedience to His commandments.  As we lose our lives in striving to be like Him, we become like Him.  We fulfill the meaning of our creation.  We fulfill our divine potential.  It's pretty sweet to think about.  It's so hard to do though.  That's why "many are called, but few are chosen."  All of us believe the message and are baptized promising to strive for perfection.  Sometimes we can't handle the promise though.  Do I really have to go to church for ALL 3 hours?  Watching the Superbowl is the ONLY exception to the rule right? There are many others that I've heard.  You might just say I'm a missionary high on the spirit or something, but it's the truth. 


Exact obedience is not a missionary thing.  It's what we need to be striving for daily and if we aren't, well, we are breaking our baptismal covenant.  Constant improvement.  Constant progression.  The prophets have prophesied that it would be hard and many would fail.  Let's not be the ones that fail.  ACT on what the spirit tells you to change.  REPENT. BECOME.  It's the gospel message.

I don't know if you all like my "soap box" emails.  I'm just kinda barfing out what I learned or what's been on my mind this week.  Hopefully you all find it helpful!  Haha.  I'm out of time this week, but I do want to add some info on some other things like investigators or funny stories or something....

Anyways, LOVE YALL!
