I have experienced the influence of righteous friends in my life! I KNOW that Christ loves us perfectly and wants us to be happy. He reaches us through others. My life has been changed because of the example of friends in my life. Since moving to the Kirtland Ohio stake 7 months ago and meeting the young adults in this area my understanding of friendship has completely changed- especially through the making of this video. Getting to know David, hearing his story, meeting the friends who helped him decide to flip a 360, and knowing how happy he is has strengthened my testimony of the Savior. With the gospel in his life, David is heading in a direction that gives him purpose and happiness. Christ is the way! When we choose that path, our righteous example can bless the lives of others too. It's real, I've seen it! and David sharing a pivotal moment in his journey is an example of a generous friend blessing someone else because I have personally been blessed. Thanks David!
This video came together at the crunch of a deadline and I had begun to doubt that it would be finished in time. Even without my faith, this project couldn't be stopped. Thanks to the combined efforts of everyone involved, but especially the two man team, Chris Hurt and Andrew Kuo (our dedicated producers/editors/directors/camera operators/everything-all-rolled-into-one-ers) this video stands to bear witness of the Savior. You've just got to see it to believe it. I'm thankful for the righteous examples of my friends that I learn from everyday. The Church is true!
