Okay so i just dont think i can write a super long letter for everyone... im really tired... haha. but i will share acouple of spiritual thoughts i had this week.
1. We had 2 people this week tell us that they felt calm and better around us and that is why they like being with us so much. This was super cool because that is exactly what we want. Maybe they are not ready to accept the gospel or sit down and have full lessons but their souls are being pricked with the holy ghost just by us being around them. This was cool and uplifting because we may not be teaching like dozens of people but people notice a difference when they are around us and i think that sometimes that is all we are here to do.
2. We were talking to one of our members and we were talking about the ways people recognize the spirit and how everyone recognizes the spirit differently. So i talking and saying that sorella argyle and i recognize the spirit in different ways and i dont really know why this hit me so hard but the spirit really does have an individual way that it speaks to each of us. I had been praying for an answer about something for a while now and i realized that i had been waiting for an answer in a different way than the Lord normally speaks to me and actually He had been answering my question in different ways that i had not been recognizing because i was looking for something else.
3. I love being a missionary. Well really I love being a member of this church. As a missionary all we do all day is try to tell people about the church. To bear testimony of what we believe. Something that is so amazing about being a member of this church is that you never need to doubt your message. No matter what anyone throws at you or says to put down what you have said, you know that what you are saying is true and if they put it to the test it would never fail. You can say the message of the restoration, of the book of mormon, of prophets, that God is our loving Heavenly Father and is in charge of this church, and you do not ever need to worry or doubt because all of it is 100% true. If someone was going to try and disprove it.. it wouldnt work. You never have to walk away from someone who has rejected you or questioned you and worry or ponder if what you are saying is a lie. You can walk away with confidence that everything you just spoke was 100% truth. Its this knowledge that gives me the confidence and the strength to keep going every day when people dont listen or dont care.
love you. :)
