Hey there family!! I hope y'all had a great week, things are getting nice and hot in Cali! And I'm getting more and more red everyday! Sometimes I think its a tan, but then when I look closely, I realize that my skin is just red. Haha, its pretty great!Not a whole lot of super exciting things happened this week, we did go on exchanges though! Really, every time I go on exchanges I just realize just how mindful Heavenly Father is of each of us, and in each of our lives. That there are people all over the world, different circumstances and Heavenly Father is aware of each and everyone of us, and providing miracles for each of us.
We had a leadership meeting this week, that was good! They did it a little bit different than what they've done in the past, so I feel like I learned a lot more of what I can do to help others, so I was very thankful for that meeting! :)
There is a quote on my planner that I feel has helped me a lot on my mission and in becoming who I am today. It says "All of our feelings of inadequacy dissolve when we link arms and do the Lords work, serve him in his glory, and live as his disciples." -Rosemary M. Wixom
I have learned so many times that I can't do things on my own, that I can't become who I need to be without the Lords help, and I know that with the Lords help I have grown so much, but I also know that I can grow so much more, and that there is no limit to our growth as humans, that like I said earlier, that Heavenly Father sees us as who we can become. I know that as we live as his disciples and act as his disciples, we will serve him, and serve him in his glory. I learned more about conversion yesterday, more of being converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and how conversion never ends, but that we always need to work on it, that its a never ending thing that we can always progress in. I know I've grown a lot on my mission, and I know that there is even more growth ahead of me. And I'm excited to grow with my Heavenly Father.
I know that Heavenly Father loves me, and that he is aware of me, but also everyone around me. I know that Jesus Christ is the perfect example of who to become like, and as we take steps every day, we can get closer to him.
Well, for the funny moment of the week, once upon a time my companion goes home in about 3 weeks, and we were talking about how awkward her first date is going to be. So missionaries, we do these things called role plays, where we act things out to try and become more confident in what we're doing or teaching. So I had the great idea that we should role play her first date, well, me being really awkward, and both of us being awkward missionaries, we realized that when we get home we're going to be the most awkward RM's in the history of the world. I don't even know how to explain how the role play went, but just know that it was really funny, and that I'm still an awkward missionary. Haha!
I love y'all!! Thanks for being such great support! I love y'all! Have a great week!
