Our new source of transportation is our feet since our miles got cut on how much we can drive a month. It’s been fun. It’s easier to talk to more people that way.
I went to my first MLC this week (missionary leadership council). It was super amazing but to be honest being in leadership is stressful at times. This week was lespecially rough but through the hardest times I can definitely feel my Saviors love for me and for those I’m serving.
This week I went on exchanges with Sister Prien. We went to a musical about Jospeh Smith called “Praise to the Man” that the Stake next to ours put on. We brought our investigator Heather and she absolutely loved it. We took a picture with Joseph Smith.
Sister Garrick and I had our LAST trainer/trainee meeting on Thursday :( it was all about how we need to “trust in the Lord” (Proverbs 3:5-6). It’s sad because Sister Garrick and I only have about a week left together. It looks like she will be staying here to take over the area and I’ll be leaving. I will miss her dearly. She’s my best friend and we work really well together but she is a very strong missionary and will do awesome at taking over the area. Still praying for a miracle that we stay together until the end of my mission though.
At the trainer/trainee meeting our mission president talked about how if we turn to the Lord, He will deliver us (Mosiah 7:33). He will be there right by our sides. All we have to do is do our best and just show up and we will be made instruments in His hands (1 Nephi 10:18). I love the scripture that says “out of small and simple things great things come to pass.” What I’m trying to say is that if you feel like you aren’t good enough to do something, you’re wrong.
Whether it’s going on a mission, following your dreams, whatever it may be, God will help you do it. I never thought I would serve a mission or even stick with it but God took simple quiet Sister Knox and used me to touch other people’s lives. Even though I lacked many skills like knowing the scriptures, being talkative or confident, etc. God helped me become more than I ever thought I could be, and He’ll help you too. I testify that’s true.
