Wether or not you agree with or believe in my church ... whether or not you believe in prophets of today ... we must all realize what a great man he was not only to those in his church, but to all humankind. Throughout his life, he gave much to those in need. He spread understanding and peace to world leaders throughout the world. He met with presidents, kings, and queens, and he treated them like he might treat you or I. Under his direction, billions of dollars was given to the poor and afflicted everywhere.
And in all this time, until his death at the age of 97, he lead his church ... and people complain about McCain being 72 and running for President of the United States.
I just hope I can accomplish much in my life someday. I hope that I can live to 80 and still feel like I can work 5 days or more a week.. And I hope I can challenge myself to overcome the trials of life, and stay close to the Lord. What a wonderful man to have as an example liver and an exemplary giver.
And I say to myself ... no pressure, right? But it's a challenge that I give myself, and one that I choose to accept.
