St. George Show

Saturday the Young Ambassadors had a show in St. George, and it was awesome! I truly think it was one of the best shows we’ve ever done, either year. As you may or may not know, St. George has experienced some major flooding in the past few weeks, and if there ever was a group of people whose spirits needed lifting, these were them. We had been challenged by the missionary committee to all pray before the show, on our own, that we could touch these people. I think that alone made us all a lot more in tune with the Spirit which made it just an amazing spiritual high.

The other thing that made for a really great overall experience was on the way home I received an answer to something I had been praying about. On three-day tour last semester a lady made a comment to Emilee (our costumer) that really bugged me. Emilee had mentioned that she was the costumer and the lady was like “So, all you do is sew all day.” Although that was somewhat degrading Emilee took it in stride and graciously confirmed that. Then the lady said “Well, at least you get to hang out with all those cool people.” That left Emilee speechless, she mentioned the conversation to me later and I was appalled. Yeah, the YAs are cool people, and I love every last one of them. But the tech crew isn’t just there to “hang out with all those cool people.” It really made me start thinking about why I was in the group again this year. Yeah, I had a great experience last year, and I made a lot of friends and did some really neat things, but is it really worth all the time and the work and the sacrifice for that? I wasn’t entirely sure. It was a question that had sort of been bothering me ever since. Maybe I shouldn’t have come back. Maybe I was supposed to be doing something else entirely. I just wasn’t sure what the point was.

So on Saturday we had our show and I was still somewhat wondering what the point was, but I had no intentions of changing my year at this point so I was going to at least continue on to the end of the year and see where I was at that point. Then on the bus ride back Alan invited me to sit with him in the front. This made it so that when they started watching a movie instead of easily being able to tune it out and go to sleep I stayed awake to watch “The Rookie”. I watched this movie as the main character left his family to travel and do the thing he loved to do (baseball in his case). In reality, it wasn’t a good time for him to be doing things like that. He was required to leave his family, stop working and live on the road. It made me start think about what I’m doing right now. Regardless of the stereotypes or whatever, I love doing technical work. I get such a thrill from being backstage and working with equipment, setting things up and loading the truck at the end of the night. However… I can’t do this forever. If five years down the road I was offered a position as the Stage Manager for Les Miserables I would most likely have to turn it down. Most likely I’ll be settled down with my own family at that point, leaving to take a show abroad for 30 days wouldn’t be an option. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me! Beyond which, just looking at this chance to go and share the gospel… in a country that is closed to missionary work from my church. Wow! Let’s be honest, even if I don’t get to serve a mission before I get married (which now even my own mom is questioning *grr*) I really feel that this is a mission for me. Maybe I won’t get to share the gospel in the traditional way, but I think I would be happy knowing that I had done this. Anyways that was my revelation for the week. I’m soooo stoked to be in YAs, I wish everyone could have an experience like this one.

Well, class is over and cleaning checks call. See ya.


Yay! I’m really liking my newest computer class. Pretty soon you’re all going to see why. I’m learning HTML and it’s a lot of fun. I’m sure that you will see the changes as I go through the semester. So far all I can do is basically boring stuff like italicize or bold or underline. The one fun thing that I can do now is make things blink… but we’re not allowed to use that function… for a very obvious reason… it’s pretty annoying. Anyways, I’m sure I’ll be using this space to showcase what I’m learning as the semester goes on… because every time I go to my internet publishing class I want to update my journal, just so I can have some fun. Plus, I have a forty minute break in my schedule before the class… and I gotta do something with that time, yaknow? So we’ll see how this works as the semester goes on. The one really weird thing is that the class is taught in a Mac lab… I haven’t used a mac since i was like 10. I had the same reaction as StrongBad “Too much mouse, and not enough keyboard.” It took me a while to adjust to using windows and it’s just as hard if not harder switching back. We’ll see, maybe I will give in like Joe and also become converted to OSX but only time can tell for sure.

In other news, I’m searching for a job. Kinda vital at this point, because I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy more groceries until I had a job… and I’m slowly running out of food. I think tonight I’m going to have to be pretty creative.

Well, class is about to start so I guess that’s all. TTFN!
