Hello lovely humans!
(Me with my Companion--Sister M)
I am still alive and beat boxing my way thru the Santa Clarita valley :)
This week was nothing short from miraculous. I get overwhelmed
writing these emails because I really have too much good to tell
I have a hard time picking which stories but I have a decently juicy one
First and foremost... WE GOT A NEW INVESTIGATOR! He is Muslim and
man, he's a gem. We taught him all about the plan of salvation and a little
of the restoration yesterday and he agreed to start reading the BOM
we gave him. And he will continue to meet with us and try to study up and get
prepared for JULY 18TH DUNK DAY! We prayed about asking him to be
baptized and July 18th just felt right so pray it happens :)))
It is such a miracle to see how much God truly does prepare his people.
The big miracles like our Muslim friend is super awesome but what is super
sick is the everyday, small miracles God manifests in our lives. I think my
favorite thing in the mission is letting the Holy Ghost speak through me and
seeing the truthfulness of the gospel spark in their eyes. It's something I cannot
effectively explain. It is something needed to experience to understand and man,
it is the coolest thing.
I was really thinking this week about why I'm here. Not only on my mission but on
this earth. We tell people all the time that we all have purpose but what is it? You know,
an LDS mission is 18-24 months but our time here on earth is our true mission. I believe
we all received "mission calls" in heaven. Part of them are called Patriarchal Blessings. Missions
are filled with rules and guidelines and goals along with an immense amount of blessings.
You're doing a lot better than you think, but we can all do a whole lot better.
Our Mission-wide Temple trip was great! The LA Temple is so big and beautiful!
Well I want you all to know not to worry about me. I have sad moments but I make sure they are numbered. I know I will never regret a decision when it is in the footsteps of Christ. I would not want to be anywhere else.
I love you all more than I love taking naps on P day. Which is a lot. So ily. Keep it fresh and make every day count.
