Car Accident

Yesterday was a very eventful day. My dad woke me up an hour before my ward met, so I could be to church on time. I stayed in my bed for a half hour, then I got up and took a showere, which lasted to long. I ended up leaving my house 10 minutes late for church. I went to pick up Roxanna for chuch, but she had already left for chuch. When I approched the antelope/hillfield intersection the light was green, so I kept going. Up out of nowhere a Truck came speeding through the intersection, and I hit him in the rear right tire. I soun around, and He swereved to the side. I hit my head on something in the car, but it only felt like a tap. The driver of the truck got out of his vehicle, and came over to my car to see if I was ok. I could barely back my car out of the intersection. It was the craziest thing ever, I had never been in a car accident before, so It kind of baffled me.
After I filled out my report, my mom took me to the emergency room to see if my head was ok, they didn't take any x-rays, all they did was have me breath deeply, to see if my back and neck were ok. They gave me a muscle relaxer, and an anti-inflamatory pill. They then released me, and told me that I would later feel pain in my neck.
I went straight to my bead, and immediatly calls started coming, everyone was asking if I was ok. I felt very loved, because everyone was making sure I was fine. When my mom came back with the medication the Doctor prescribed, she told me that their were flowers at our house, with no name on it, I am not sure who brought them, but that person must know that my favorite color is orange, because they were orange tulips. I had a couple visitors, and they came to make sure I was fine. I recieved a card from my niece, and she wrote it all by herself. Today when we went to get the stuff out of the car, I took pictures. We had to talk to a rental car place, and to the insurance company to get a testiomonial from me. My neck is really stiff, and it has pain on one side, but my head has stopped hurting. I am glad that my life was spared, because if I had been a second sooner, I would have been gone. It is cool to see that the lord is looking out for me, and wants me to keep going down the right path.

Long distance Cooking

I was talking to Katrina who now is back at BYU Idaho, and I decided that I was really hungry, so while still on the phone we both decided to make personal pizza's so we both got out 6 or 7 rholds dough balls, and defrosted them, and made our own pizzas. Did I mention I was on the phone this whole time. We each put on different toppings, since we didnt have the same things in our kitchen, and we both took pictures of our pizzas when they got done.

At least I did anyway, I hope she took a picture of hers. I kept talking to her while eating the pizza, and when it was gone, I told her that I probably should go do my homework, and that I would post this on my blog when I was done, so here it is. My very own personal pizza, that I made with Katrina long distance. Did I mention that I also had to make a salad for a Choralaires party, and out of all the salads there, my pasta salad was gone first. I am starting to learn how to cook, and it is very exciting for me. I just want to make different things every day now, and make new things. I cant wait to show off my cooking skills in the mission field, you are jealous, I know you are.

Saturday Scripture

I love reading passages in the scriptures, because their is so much you can learn from them. This scriptures, is my wards theme for this year. I love this scripture, because it shows you that you can overcome the trials in your life, and that everything will be fine, if you just put your trust in the lord. I love the teachings of the scriptures.
Alma 36:3
I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.
I know that it is really short, but it is so simple, yet true. I hope it can help you in your life, and that it will give you hope in things that are not going the way you want them to.

Spreading the Gospel

So I told you that I would post again when I placed a Book of Mormon, so here it is. I just have to tell you it was the scariest thing I have done. I was all nervous inside, but I knew I was supposed to give it to the person that I did. So on Monday morning, I woke up early so I could ride the bus to school. I heard a lot of stories about people placing copies of the Book of Mormon on public transportation, so I decided that I should wake up early to ride the bus. I rode the bus to Weber State and back, but had no luck even talking to anybody, I was so discouraged. I knew that I was supposed to place the Book of Mormon to someone that day, I just didn't know who, or where, or when. I went to work later, and all through work I was debating on who I should give the Book of Mormon. I got off work early, so I went to Maceys to talk to Katrina, because she just got off work, and we decided we should go to the neighborhood Walmart. I had a feeling that I should bring the Book of Mormon in with me. I have talked to this girl that works there, and I wasn't sure if she was LDS, so I decided if she was there, I would try to give the Book of Mormon to her. Well I kept walking past her check stand, and I just couldn't muster enough courage to go through her line. I was very nervous, and scared. I had really never talked to someone about religion before. I finally mustered up enough courage, and picked up a few groceries, and put them on top of the Book of Mormon. She rung up the groceries, and then when she saw the Book of Mormon, I asked her if she had seen it before. She said yes, and that she was raised LDS, but she fell away from the church, due to drugs and alcohol. When she decided to go back the people in her ward asked her how rehab was and they judged her. She decided not to go back because of how cruel her ward members were. She told me she didn't currently have a Book of Mormon, and that she would gladly take the one given to her. She said that she would pray about it, and read it again. She also told me that she was thinking about coming back to church, and that was the boost she needed. I felt so good after giving her the Book of Mormon, and I think I might go back in sometime, and invite her to my singles ward. I know that this gospel is true. I also know for a fact that the holy ghost really does prompt us to do things. If we heed to those promptings we will be blessed.

Come Home

Come home the father calls, come home my child to me. Come home the holy ghost will lead you to eternity. Lest we forget our home's with god this lovely earth it's seas and skies, and all things beautiful and true of heavenly father testify.
I know what you are saying right now, you are saying wow Troy can really write. Well that is very true, but sadly these words weren't written by me, but they are the lyrics to a song that the Ogden lds institute choralaires are singing. This Friday and Saturday is our spring variety show. The times are 7:30p.m. both nights, and a special matinee Saturday at 2:30p.m. I really want everyone to come and see it, because I have an acting part in the show. The theme of the institute this year is come home, so it seems appropriate that we sing the song which is written above. This show is sort of about the prodigal son, and it is a very touching show. I hope you all have the opportunity to see it. It will strengthen your testimony, and answer your prayers. Here is a sneak peek on one of the scenes.

Jake: Who's stupid idea was it to go to Mexico?
Troy: How was I supposed to know that Mitch's car was going to break down?
Mitch: Well at least we made it this far.
Jake: Fillmore
Mitch: at least its not Ogden
Jake: whatever
Troy: So what do we do while Mitch's car is getting fixed?
Mitch: Lets set up our camp
Jake: I have a better idea, lets trash the camp.
Mitch: What
Jake: You know like Tarzan.

I hope you all can make it, it will be a great show. I invite all of you to come home, in the Ogden LDS Institute spring variety show.
