Sorry this is just a short one- time is flying!! I've been out more than 6 months now! Ah!
But I love missionary work. It's the best. I know the gospel is true and the Book of Mormon is true. This gospel isn't just for us to be saved after we die, but it helps us to be better people NOW so we are happier in THIS life too. Last night we had a lesson with two of our investigators...they were struggling a little bit with some personal/family problems, and I realized that whatever our problems in life are, the answer is always the same: just follow Christ. This is what our lesson was, I invite you all to read it too:)
"Whatever problems we have in life, this is the counsel from the Savior: 3 Nephi 27:27. His invitation is kind of intimidating because of course He's perfect, but really, if we jsut do all we can to be forgiving, kind, patient, diligent...that answers every problem we encounter whether it be family, financial, work or school. So how do we become like Christ? here in the Book of Mormon are the answers: Mosiah 3:19 and Ether 12:27. "
That's just a summary, but study it. I know it's true. Christ is always the answer and it's always possible for us to change if we're willing, we work for it, and we center our lives and our effrots on the Savior. He loves us. He loves you. He want us to become better NOW so we can help more of His children be happy too.
Thanks for everything- I love you all!! :)
