One year ago I had just arrived in the Holy Land to start 18 months of service. One year ago today I stood at the top of the mountain and watched fireworks.
I have attended several weddings of dear friends, gone camping for the first time, spent evenings with friends, saw friends and family as they came on pilgrimage, went on pilgrimage with my family, traveled to Europe for the first time, attended the funeral of the last Hand of the Cause of God, spent endless days at the beach, prayed at the Shrines whenever I could, and laughed a lot.
I have learned about prayer, strength, solitude, friendship, love, and responsibility. There are things that I haven’t even discovered yet.
