Keyen's Farewell

Keyen did such a great job speaking in church on Sunday. I have never been so proud of him and I know my family is proud of him as well.
I just wanted to share some highlights from the words that Keyen touched on in his talk.
Keyen talked about what a testimony is and how he gained his own testimony. Something that really stood out to me was that he talked about what a testimony is. He compared it to when someone gives a testimony in court. You testify of things you saw are what you know to be true. It really puts in prospective of what a testimony is. It's something so simple yet it is such a powerful force for sharing the light of Christ and his love with others.
Another thing he mentioned was that he had many leaders and friends that have been there for him and have helped through hard times by being great examples. I think we can all agree that friends and family can make all the difference when it comes to choosing the right path to take.
It was also great to hear from former Stake President Worthington. I really loved when he talked about how Heavenly Father knows each of us personally. He also pointed out that we can use Repentance ALL THE TIME. It's not something to be ashamed of but it is a gift and we are supposed to use it often because we are imperfect and that is why Jesus sacrificed himself for us, so we could receive the full blessings of the atonement.
Thank you for everyone who came to support Keyen. It truly is amazing of all the loving people that surround him and have helped him get to where he is today. He will be such an amazing missionary. Even though we will miss him a lot this is what his Father in heaven wants of him and he will only be blessed because of it.
Only 2 more days till he has to report to the MTC :)
