Happy New Year!! 2019! How crazy is that! It has flown by!! I have one more year on my mission! This is my whole year to just be a missionary! I am so so stoked!!
I could sit here and say new year, new me!! But we all know it sure is the same me!! With a few tweaks here and there of course. I do though have some big plans ahead, and all of them have to do with my mission. I could sit here and tell you all about these new plans but that would just ruin the surprise ;) I'll be sure to add a new one each week just to keep ya on your toes.
Christmas time has come to an end and Temple Square has started to quiet down a bit or a lot I should say. We've gone from having thousands each night now to having closer to 20 haha It has been quite the transition. Now we have become a more online teaching focused mission and I am back on the horse of being hung up on daily! I just want to send these kind people a Bible or the Book of Mormon, but they seem to change there mind after they filled out the whole request for it. If there wasn't a protocol against it I would bear some strong stern testimony to them about how these Scriptures will change there life! Sadly, I never get the chance haha! If any of you would like a Book of Mormon of a Bible I will gladly send you one!! Luckily you don't have the chance to hang up on me!
I have been studying in Alma recently and I came across a very common verse, Alma 36: 3 "And now, O my son Helaman, behold, thou art in thy youth, and therefore, I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; for I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day."
To me this is huge. If I could walk away from my mission and say I have learned one thing it would be to put my trust in the Lord. To give him my all. To sacrifice the things that are the hardest to let go. Sometimes I often find myself wondering why, or how will I get through it, but I can do anything if I trust the Lord. If you wake up every day asking how you can take the trials he gives you and turn them into your greatest strength I promise you your life will change. Trust him. Listen to his counsel and follow in his footsteps.
I love you all so much!! Have a good week!
