This week we had an amazing MLC with the Dixons, their trainer Brother
Lee Donaldson and Brother Webb (who trains the senior couples at the
MTC). The meeting was about the doctrine of Christ and finding people
to teach through technology. We were shown clips of the new missionary
videos (the district 3) and one of them showed a skype lesson where
the elders added a returned missionary to the lesson via skype. The
returned missionary had taught the woman they were teaching while she
was on her mission. Sheesh, I got pretty teary eyed. The returned
missionary was saying that it made her so happy to still be able to
teach those she loves and cares about and to be involved in their
So inspired that this whole skyping with those who have returned home
has come about right now! It’s been the hardest thing to think about
missing out on the lessons of investigators etc. for the rest of my
life but that doesn’t have to be the case! Of course I won’t be a full
time missionary with a name tag but being able to be involved in the
progress of my amazing friends is all I could ask for.
After the video Brother Lee Donaldson comes up to me and says, “So I
hear you’re going home soon. What did you think of that video?” I let
him know how excited I was and he goes, “So you will be a missionary
It was an amazing conference though, I felt the Spirit so strongly.
Technology really has been inspired to come forth in these times to
spread the gospel to all the world. I invite each of you to say a
prayer to know who to reach out to, then scroll through your contacts
or friends on social media and send them a Mormon message/General
Conference talk or whatever comes to mind to make their day better.
It has been a great week. Constant finding. As of right now we have
not been able to hear back from the cute family we started teaching
and we basically have no one to teach. The Ward is great though and we
are working through the members 100 percent because everything is
gated. There have been some long days but somehow I still just love it
and it has been making me work the hardest ever to find people so it’s
good for me to keep focused on the work this last transfer.
I love you all so much I just know God is so aware of us. He has
brought back the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth!!!
This is incredible do we even realize?
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the pathway back to Him that is made
possible because of our Savior Jesus Christ. This pathway involves us
choosing to accept what our Savior has done for us by having faith,
believing in Him and BELIEVING HIM enough to follow Him by repenting
or CHANGING to become more like Him, then entering into a promise with
Him to keep following Him at baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy
Ghost to guide us to help us to keep following Him and enduring to the
end or continuing to use His atonement to allow us to become more than
we ever could on our own.
As we follow this, His gospel, we are allowing the atonement to take
effect in our lives, He heals us and He forgives us. Heavenly Father
has given us all the means to understand and use that pathway.
Everything that has come forth from the restoration of the gospel of
Jesus Christ: the priesthood, temples, etc. is for us to follow those
steps or look to our Savior to become more like Him and to one day
know complete joy because of Him. One day, we will be able to have
that joy in our families with our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus
We are here because God loves us and He has given us EVERY MEANS to
return back to Him. It is amazing.
I know that despite our sins and weaknesses, because of Jesus Christ
we can be completely cleansed and healed. I am just so grateful.
ALSO happy birthday to my beautiful sister Brynn! SHEESH I love you!
Have a good one you married woman.
Have a wonderful week, I just know all of this is true with all of my heart.
