|Decided to Join the Choir|
So at the end of the first or second day (I don't remember, the days are all the same here, so they just kinda blend together) all of the new missionaries in my zone were interviewed for like 5 minutes to just talk to some of the branch presidency to get to know them. Turns out that interview was actually to see who the district leaders were going to be, and turns out I'm now one of them. I was super confused because honestly i thought there were like 3 other guys that i met in the first day who would have done better than me, but I guess I just gotta do my best with it.
That’s pretty much it from this week! But just a quick thought that one of my roommates shared with me that I thought was pretty interesting! He told me a story and this is how it goes:
There was once a man who wanted to climb an insanely high and desolate mountain that no man had ever climbed before. He was determined to be the first. He trained for months, and finally decided to conquer the mountain. After finally getting to the top, he finds a little pool of water, and in that pool of water he finds a stopwatch. He heads down the mountain and wonders how on earth a stopwatch was at the top of a mountain that no one had ever climbed before! He takes it to scientists, and they decide that the most logical answer is that over millions and millions of years, the winds and waters and elements moved in just a way to create every part of that stopwatch, and after millions and millions more years, those same elements coincidentally moved all the parts perfectly together.

Instead of just accepting the fact that someone had made it there before him, he makes up a ludicrous theory of the elements and doing it. My roommate said it’s the same thing with recognizing there is a God. People would rather turn to a theory that the universe just coincidentally lined every single particle perfectly by itself, than just accept the simple fact that there is a God who created everything.
Just something I wanted so share :) Anyways, I love you all and hope the best for all of you! Ill email next week with more awesomeness!!
