Usually, it's because my parents think I am talented, and they come up with ways for me to use my talents to help others.
One of my favorite pretty cool things I've ever been asked to do was to help make a video for the Crossroads Square Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to use during their 2013 Youth Conference. My parents served an 18 month mission in this branch, helping the members, refugees from Nepal, in a variety of ways. Although I am certain my parents helped many people in this branch, I think their connection was the strongest with these youth.
Although I made this video nearly a year ago, watching it still brings tears to my eyes. Maybe it's because I have met some of these teenagers. Maybe it's because one of them, Suman Pakwal, lives with my parents and is pretty much my brother. Maybe it's because the gospel is true, and because humanity is good, and because we really are all children of the same loving Heavenly Father.
I don't know.
But it touched me today, so I thought I would share it.
