I DID LEARN A LOT THOUGH IN ALL OF THIS MADNESS!!
(I AM GOING TO CHEAT AND JUST COPY/PASTE MY EMAIL TO MY MISSION PRESIDENT!)
Man, this week. it was wonderful! it was awesome to teach this week. Its awesome to be a missionary in the GZLM.
As i was going through my week I realized something. Heavenly Father can do his own work. I knew that before, I had heard it, but it never really hit me until this week. It made me wonder why I am out here. why does the Lord call missionaries!? It’s so he can build us in the process.
This was one of the biggest things I learned from Sister Griffus. She taught me about the atonement. About how we are being built up by our Heavenly Father.
I learned this week that the reason that I have not yet reached the type of missionary I want to be is because I never will. I will always have something to work on. That is why I sometimes feel a little unqualified. I am unqualified. I get the opportunity to work hard now. To go through the pain of repentance and to assist the Lord in not only building the people in Malawi but also myself. I am so grateful for the times that I don’t feel as strong, that when I can completely rely on the Lord and be stronger then I ever could by myself.
I feel so much more peace about where I am as a missionary. I am not perfect but I know where I need to work and how I am going to do it. The Lord and I are a team now. He is building me and I will let him and assist in anyway I can! I am just ready to serve him!
Like we talked about in an interview a while ago I am looking at this change as a new start. It’s a time that I get to strive to be the best I can be. I will be more obedient I will work in more unity with the Lord and my companion and I will try harder. I am excited! I know I can do it, with the help of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ!
President I am so excited! Truly I am. Changing areas will be hard but it will be good. I feel like I became too comfortable there. I can assure you I am not now so here we go growth! Haha.
Life is good! I am happy!
I love you and hope your week is so very good!
WELL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS I TRULY DO KNOW THAT I AM DOING THE LORDS WORK!
