"Also a pic of me and E Mickelson, our elders gave everyone a blessing before we left, i asked mickelson to give me mine. He was super nervous and he is a goofy kid, but when he gave the blessing i could totally tell that he was being directed by the spirit. He gave a great blessing and told me that i would have exito in my mission amongst other things. when the blessing was over, he was so shocked, he was like Guys, that was real! That was the first time i actually knew what to say, the spirit was telling me what to do! He was so cute. All the hermanas and elders got blessings, it was really cool. A church that trusts young men and women to preach the gospel, and they actually do a good job at it, is the true church."
