Another week serving the Lord, learning and growing in the Spirit.
Another week being HAPPY as a representative of Jesus Christ :)
This week we had a training with President Douglas and the asistentes on Wednesday. It was SO good - and I also got to see a few Elders from my CCM district who are serving in different zones! Always a little tender mercy :)
*Side note. I am in this little internet shack right now, and "My Heart Will Go On" just came on, but in Spanish. A little distracting? Yes. Worth the laugh? YES.*
Anyway, we had an amazing training with President Douglas! At one point we did an exercise where we listed all of the names of Jesus Christ that we could think of. 60 or 70 missionaries... and we came up with a good 30 or 40 names.
I learned that Jesus Christ has so many names because he is EVERYTHING to us... and different for everyone, depending on where they are in their life. At times He is Teacher... sometimes He is Healer... others He is Savior... but He is ALWAYS there. I love learning more about my Savior as I strive every day to be a better representative and servant of Him.
I also spoke in Sacrament on Sunday, and it just so happened that a member of the Young Women’s General Board was there visiting our ward. I spoke about the importance of commitments, and some of the commitments we have as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It went well :) And the Sister that was there visiting gave me the best compliment - "So, you are finishing your mission right? Because your Spanish is literally perfect and you understand the doctrine better than any missionary I have ever met in all my years of church service.”..... Well, that made me feel pretty happy :) She was such a nice Sister, it was fun to talk with her :)
I love this work! I love this gospel. I know my Savior lives. That is why I am here.
The Church is true!!!!
