My team captain Roland always told us to love people. He said that we were here to cultivate our heart. I was thinking how I could make the most indemnity conditions, but Roland said that loving people was the greatest indemnity condition.
My internal challenging point was to live for the sake of others. Each day I tried to love, but it was hard. What I realized through my effort is that if you give your heart, then God wants to give you his. God is saying, "I'm going to trust you because I know you can do it."
If we can look at it like that, we can really know that we are truly blessed. I don't know why I was able to break through, but maybe it's because I realized how beautiful the gift of receiving Heavenly Father was. Through realizing how much love I have been given, and how much I want to give--I found God.
I really felt I wanted to set the standard for everybody to follow. It makes me want to push myself harder when I hear other people's testimonies and other people breaking their records. I wanted to make my family proud and inspire my friends. I talked to someone one night, and that person said, 'Who cares what other people think--as long as you're there to bring God joy. Don't worry about everybody else.' Until then I had a struggling week, so I thought, 'OK, I'll just do it for God.' Through my prayers, I wanted to offer that last day to Heavenly Father. That day I was able to break my record.
