This week a member of my ward gave me some shoes for my mission. My previous dress shoes were getting ruined: the soul of one was coming off. He gave it to me because someone gave him shoes for his mission, so he was paying it forward (now I get to give shoes to another missionary when I get older)
Yesterday, I went to the temple to receive my endowment. I now know why you must be worthy to enter the temple, for if you are not everything would seem really weird and silly. But, I know the things we do in the temple are from God, for I felt the spirit there. I am glad I went and I am looking forward to the next time I go.
