The Best 2 Years!!!!!

Well this is kinda sad but I haven't been on my blog forever and wow look at the time I now have less then a week left as a missionary and can't believe how fast it has gone by.

 So I decided (with a little persuasion from my mother) that I should write one last blog. So I guess here I go!

Well I have been thinking about what I could say besides the same old stuff that you here from all of the other missionaries that return home, so sorry if I repeat my fellow returned missionaries. But it really has been the best 2 years! There is no doubt in my mind that I could have done anything that has changed me in ways I never thought would happen.  And all of  the countless number of people I have met and that have had such a lasting impact on me, that I will never forget, and just wish I could thank them all individually.

A mission is really a hard thing but it is worth it, I mean who would want to live with another guy you have never met before and have to be with him 24/7 (or girl for the sisters). And leave your family for 2 years, I mean it sounds pretty crazy to me. But you know what, it is worth every unforgettable moment, every slammed door, every rejection, every early morning, every trial, every heartache, every p-day, and most of all for every one that accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is what it is all about it doesn't matter how many doors got slammed it is how many that opened there hearts up to the Savior. Those are the memories that I am taking with me.

Well I really can't wait to be back in Utah! But I am going to miss Western New York, it will always have a special place in my heart, and I will never forget all of the great memories I have made out here and people I have come to really love and care about.. So I guess so long all of my New York friends, I will never forget you.

And hello to my future I am not sure what you are going to bring me but I know that it will be full of great moments and trials, but I know that as I hold to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as I have been teaching over the past 2 years I know that I will make it trough every one of them.

I know that The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Gods Kingdom on earth and I am so thankful for all of the experiences that I have had and for the change it has brought in my life I will never forget it, it is truly the BEST 2 YEARS!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for all of the support Love Elder Tyler Rose

Just To Follow up!!!!

So I just wanted to follow up and see if anybody had an experience helping someone out.... So I have one to start out.. Well we were headed to an appointment and we got there a little early(because we have a truck haha) and all day I had a feeling like I needed to call this girl we have become friends with we will call her Suzy but so I was like well I have a few mins before the appointment and so I called her. And as soon as she answered the phone she didn't sound the same I thought I woke her up but she was actually crying because some one in her life had just passed away from cancer..

And so I learned from  that experience that one there is always some one in need of us, and if we listen to the holy ghost the Lord will tell us who it is that needs some encouragement. And I just thank my Father in Heaven for the chance I was able to be the instrument to help brighten one of his children's day

So now its your turn lets here what has happened in your life and share your experiences on how you have been able to help others..

Sorry its been a long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well life has been pretty good in the overall scheme of things this past month and a half it is crazy to think that it has been that long since I've written!!!!!!!!!!!! So sorry and if it wasn't for my mother I would've just gave up on this along time ago so you can thank her....

So lately I have been thinking a lot about my life you know the questions like, What do I want to be when I grow up? Where will I be in 5 -10 - 15 years from now? And as I get closer and closer to the end of my mission it seems that the more these questions are coming into my mind.

And so as a result of that I have been focusing on me rather then the people I have been called to serve and I have also realized that Satan can take something good and great and turn it into a distraction and get you to forget about your purpose.. Weather it is me as a servant of the Lord or the guy down the street doing the best he can to provide for his family.

This past conference we had great council from a member of the first presidency.  President Uchtdorf said that any virtue, when taken to an extreme, can become a vice. And that is so true at least for me. If all I do is think about my life ( which isn't bad to think about what I want to do etc., just need to make sure it is under control and doesn't become a vice) then I will not be able to help those around me.. Because there is somebody out there today that needs our smiling faces to help them through a trial or something.   

So my invitation to all of you is to step back and look at your lives and change something that will help you be come more like the Savior. And forget ourselves for a little bit and help those around us. I know that you will feel the spirit of the Lord in your life and and any trouble that you are going trough will be made light I promise I have seen it work!!!!
