And in the end...

Broc and I both agreed that one could never understand this experience unless they have experienced it.  We came home and people ask us how the trip was, we try to explain how incredible it was and they say, "so what part did you play in the pageant?"  Then we say to ourselves, they don't get it, it's not about the pageant, it's about bringing souls to Christ, especially your own.  When your engaged in that work all day long, it's a happy day every day, and you come home a changed person and a changed family, with a stronger testimony of Jesus Christ and a loving Heavenly Father and a stronger desire to do a little better each day.  The sacrifice we thought we were making to give up two weeks of our summer turned out to be the most wonderful time we could have ever imagined.
