Dear Family,How are you all? Wow i hope you all had a swell week cus i sure did! It is getting real nice here in Georgia! AHh i love being a missionary!!
5. This less active family that we have been working with for my whole mission came to church on sunday for the first time in years!!!!!Being a missionary truly is so amazing and i love it so much!! I am so thankful for the Lord for blessing me with this experience to help bring his lost souls unto him. This morning i was reading my call letter, and i read it exactly how i read it when i first opened it with the paper covering and sentence by sentence. Wow the memories sure did flood back. Something really stood out to me it said that more joy is awaiting you then you have ever experienced before. Oh how true that statement is. I have never felt more joy that bringing souls back to our Savior. Before my mission i thought that joy came from watching movies, playing games, or riding my dirt bike. But i have experienced true joy on my mission that outdoes any of those things. Today i was reading in Doctrine and Covenants 18 and i read some amazing verses that truely i know to be true.
I testify that this is the Lord's work. He does what he wants, and when he wants in his own wisdom. I love being able to asist and take part in feeling pure joy here on my mission. Joy comes only through working your bum off, being obedient in every way possible, and being deserving of the spirit. I know that God loves each and everyone of his children, and he wants them to come back to him and experience this joy for themselves. How blessed i am!
