This week was really great! We had a great streak of trying of building our teaching pool and in the process met some really great people. We had several investigators open with us and share with us of their concerns and their troubles...and it wasn't a burden to hear them...but it was more of a privilege because these people could see that we were sent from the Lord to be a guide and to find answers to their prayers. I felt so touched to see the power that we have as missionaries. It is so important for us to live up to our privilege as missionaries and to stand as a light and a beacon to those around us. So many missionaries are so willing to reap the blessings and the success that comes from a mission....but they are not willing to meet the requirements that are needed in order to receive this success. I have felt so sad to be placed in a leadership position and see the case of this so many times. We are called to stand apart from the people of the world....it is a simple thing....yet it has become the most difficult to accomplish.
I have loved being able to work and forget about the days. The mission is such a wonderful place to really develop yourself and understand what the Lord has in store for you. I feel like that I have forgotten what day it is...and all I need to do is work. i am learning that the mission is really the place where the Lord is shaping you into what you need to be....so that we can be of use later, in His kingdom.
