This past week has been a better week whitewashing, we had zone conference and it was really awesome, about working with members, using the Book of Mormon, and how to help others progress, i got a lot of good inspiration on how i can improve myself 🙂 and plan to apply it now 🙂 we have found some really good investigators, and the work is beginning to move along. i really felt like i was in SeaTac again, the fire of talking to people and caring so much about them is the best feeling, i love running and sharing with people the wonderful message of the restoration, it has changed lives. there was a new member fireside yesterday and “J” who i was apart of his conversion, bore his testimony and i hear it was so powerful, as if he has been a member for 10 years, i love working hard and missionary work, it truly does bring true happiness when you see others grow and begin to reach their potential. I would never trade my mission for anything, I really do love it and the people I meet. 🙂 Dont you EVER forget who you are…. children of God, he is there, he does answer your prayers, this is his true church, never allow the world to drag you down, because to God you are EVERYTHING. Read the Book of Mormon, and look for how much Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ truly do love us. Pray daily, and go and fullfill the callings you have, this church is about helping others, and lifting others,”if any man will do his will he shall know of the doctrine” we dont build a testimony unless we try out what Christ teaches us 🙂 Christ was selfless, never thinking of himself. and now i know its not easy for it was not easy for Him, for he wanted to do it another way, but he submitted to the fathers will, because he loves us, but the Lord gives us strength to endure when we trust him and keep his commandments and with His atonement we will overcome, stay strong in this hard world, remember the mercies of God from Adam until now in your life and the lives of others, To quote peters experience in the bible, “peter? do you love me?”………”feed my Sheep” if we love the lord, “if you love me keep my commandments” then serve others and be humble in all. Preach My Gospel, will help you become more like the savior, study it, it will help you grow to love others and keep your testimony strong, study it DAILY, and you will not be able to withhold this gospel from the world (friends, family, neighbors) I love you all, the Lord loves you all.
