That is so cool that Austin was able to return good and that he has returned changed. Tell him hi from me and tell him that I'm so proud of him! That is such a cool experience for you guys! I just can't believe that 2 years have already passed by since Austin left on his mission. Crazy stuff. But yeah. I was actually there when President called you guys!

I also learned, or realized again, a cool principle that is taught in the Book of Mormon. In 2 Nephi 10:23 it says, "
