  I have been thinking a lot about the great love that I have for the great state of Montana. I heard this quote that describes my feelings quite well. Its by John Steinbeck, entitled Montana, “I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’ re in it... " I have a great love for my home here in California, but there is something about those big sky's that made the name God's country feel like home. 

  There are more things than I could possibly talk about when it comes to my feelings on the state of Montana, but one of the reasons for my great love, is because thats where I was able to gain a greater love and understanding of The Gospel of Jesus Christ! The line talking about how its hard to recognize love when your in it makes me think to the life of Jesus Christ, how some knew He was the Christ, but it took until after He was gone to grasp the fuller meaning of what Christ had done for the whole world!

  I am so grateful for the time that I was able to spend in Montana, for the wonderful friends I was able to make and the work I was able to preform for the Lord, and see His great hand in my life and also in the lives of many others. God lives and wants to help us all find that love for His gospel, and brighten all of of lives. I know these things to be true, and I leave it with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
