We were serving in two wards and had a ton of work we had a ton of investigators and potential and then we were re-assigned to just one.... our teaching pool went from Olympian to kiddy in one phone call. But when the Lord always provides a way. We’ve been calling old investigators and have been receiving some promising referrals! It’s great! We met with one yesterday, he is golden! So awesome. He was answering all the questions at church and when we taught the lesson he knew all the answers and had a testimony! He had just prayed the night before about the church and baptism and in our Sunday school class the lesson was about baptism! (The best part is that the teacher was just a member we asked bc there is no assigned teacher...talk about following the spirit!) It was awesome. He also wants to serve a mission!!!! What? Golden shuu! Heavenly Father works in such personal ways with each of us, He gives us the answers and assurances we need!
There is a super cute Mongolian sister who just got her visa! She’s serving in Arizona. She leaves for the mtc this week!
It is pretty funny...but so true. I was reading in 3 Nephi chapters 14 when Christ comes to the nephrites and he teaches them about judging others. 1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words he turned again to the multitude, and did open his mouth unto them again, saying: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother: Let me pull the mote out of thine eye—and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?5 Thou hypocrite, first cast the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
none of us our perfect...I’m not. but we need to all get better at improving. it's like Paul says, "we see through a glass darkly" we can't always see things or people or ourselves clearly. We can't see others' full potential...we can't even comprehend our own....we're all trying and with Christ's atonement we can overcome all things. we all need a bit more charity, Christ like love. Elder Holland has said that it is the greatest need we have on this planet. Christ like love can conquer anything. it can bring light to the darkest or saddest soul. and we can all carry that light!
I’m grateful to be a missionary and to be able to help others onto the path and start towards their great potential. We are all sons and daughters of the Most High!
