I commend you for reading the Old Testament. I think I tried for Seminary when we studied it, but I don't think I finished it. The story of Hezekiah is neat and I admire the lesson you pointed out.
Here as a missionary I am constantly being reminded about humility and asking for God's help. I have had many experiences and will certainly have plenty more on my mission that demonstrate the perfectness of God's knowledge. He really does know just what we need.
I hope that I am able to get better at being a missionary/on a mission as time goes on. It is easy to get discouraged and frustrated with myself and in general. I want to be able to make Heavenly Father, and my family, and my mission president proud because I have served honorably and with everything I have. Listening to your stories and experiences is motivation for me to work harder and do my best. I thank you again for your example.
I am looking forward to General Conference in a couple weeks. I am thankful for your letters and your testimony.
