Dear Family and Friends,
I am so privileged and grateful to be serving as a missionary. It’s hard to express my feelings; to explain just how grateful I am to have served a mission and for the growth that has taken place and the knowledge that I have been blessed to receive from my Heavenly Father. It is easily hands down the best thing I have ever done for my life!!
I feel the perspective of the Gospel helps us to love more fully. I love what Parley P. Pratt said about love when he was referring to his wife, “I have loved before but I knew not why. But now I loved with a pureness and intensity of elevated, exalted feeling which would lift my soul from the transitory things of the groveling sphere and expanse of as the ocean.” I really loved the quote from him and I feel it helps us to love more deeply.
I also have been studying the topic of character. And I really hope to always have a good and strong character. I love that the ‘greatest battle of life is fought within the silent chambers of the soul. A victory on the inside of a man’s heart is worth a hundred conquests on the battlefield of life. To be a master of yourself is the best guarantee that you will be a master of the situation. Know thyself. The CROWN of Character is self-control.’
Our area is doing great. Good people progressing. Hopefully we will baptize at least one before I go because I love them all so much but if not, it’s okay. I just love them all. I would love to see them enter into the covenant soon! I feel all of them are progressing really well and I don’t see anything that would stop them from being baptized.
Love you all!
This is me with Sister Grace!! LOVE THIS WOMAN!! She is an investigator but she is more like a friend!! I love her so much!! We always laugh and crack jokes, and she is the best!!
