Lesson #1: Service

People aren't putting pictures up on Facebook fast enough, so you get to hear more than you ever wanted to about my trip without the pictures of me!


We kicked off the conference with a service project. We went door-to-door collecting canned food and monetary donations for the local food bank.


The group that I was with was assigned a very poor neighborhood of run-down duplexes. These people might have been on support from the food bank themselves, but they just gave and gave...it was crazy in the best way possible. Their kids {ADORABLE kids} would help, and they would bring bags of cans to the door, or dollar bills.
 {fun fact: every dollar was the equivalent of 10 pounds of food}
They were so willing to give of themselves!

After we were done with our neighborhood, we said a prayer of gratitude in the car for their generosity and asked Heavenly Father to bless them for it. I hope that I can develop the same attitude of willing, selfless sacrifice.

Have a beautiful Sunday!
