This week has been no less than a miracle and great blessing! I LOVE my mission and everything about it!
I attached a picture of Mary Grace Finch's baptism, and just want to share only a couple thoughts this week.
Doctrine and Covenants 18:15-17:
"And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my father!
And now, if you joy will be great with one soul that you have brought unto me into the kingdom of my father, how great will be your joy if you should bring many souls unto me!
Behold, you have my gospel before you, and my rock, and my salvation."
This "one Soul" has been me. I have felt that I have been the one taught this whole time by all these amazing missionaries and people for the past two years, and it has changed everything about me. I have been changed for good!
I owe everything to the Lord. And I thank Him for the amazing blessing of putting up with me for two years, and allowing me to grow as I have. I have seen Him lead me, push me, and mold me. He is my master and Lord! I testify of Him and His love, as well as His ability to make us much more than we can alone. We may make ourselves but a smuge, when He will make a masterpiece!
I look forward with much excitement of coming home in a week. BUT I look with even more excitement for what the Lord has planned this week as I finish strong!
I love all of you so much! I look forward to seeing all your faces soon! Have a great week! And I'll see you next week!
Con amor and animo!
