Ive had to rely so much on Heavenly Father this week.
Elder Holland has given me great council. I've been able to read alot of his talks. One of which talked about how missionaries are the most prayed for people on the face of the earth. I can testify that that is true. I have felt all of your prayers and the love that heavenly father has for his missionaries.
One of the most comforting experience was having three different people tell me how they are surprised to hear that I've only been out for 4 weeks, because I'm a "natural" missionary and I've dived right in.
I was able to do more service at the farm, shoveling wood chips. I love being surrounded by other missionaries. Being a missionary is the most sacred and most eternal experience that I have ever done.
YOU GET CREDIT FOR TRYING
Heavenly father is so proud of his children. You are never failing if you are trying your best. Even when you make mistakes God still sees the good.
I GOT TRANSFERRED
I got transferred to the fortmill area, which is in South Carolina. I am now in a trio and am loving every second of it. My new companion(s) are sister Skousen (who was my mtc companion) and sister Taylor! Sister taylor is from spanish fork, and I know her younger sister! Small world! She is so diligent and hard working!
This area is incredible. The ward is so supportive and kind. Our investigators are all progressing. We had two of them come to church with us this week! I LOVE teaching! I was able to knock on so many doors. We found 3 potential investigators by doing that!
During hard times we need to rely on our savior. My testimony of the atonement has been strengthened and I've been able to grow closer to the savior and have felt a deeper love from him. Christ needs to be everything to us. We need to abide in him forever. For the gospel to bless our lives, we must be firmly attached to him. WE NEED TO BE ALL IN! He is our true source of strength. In him we can endure all.
I love this gospel SO much! I know without a doubt the book of Mormon is the word of god. I know Christ has called prophets to help lead and guide us. I challenge all of you to watch conference this week. I love you all and I know the savior loves you so much. Have a great Easter! My new address is 1116 redhaven drive fort mill south Carolina 29715
