I decided to create an email list, so that I can send out an email to all of you at once. :) Hopefully the things I say will help you all out in all that you do and help you to draw nearer to God. As you know, I am loving my mission, and I can't imagine missing out on the opportunity to be out here. Yes, life goes on at home without me, but I am gaining so much understanding of the most important things about this life by being here and giving of my time to the Lord. I love that I know that as a full-time missionary, I am called of God to stand as a witness of Jesus Christ himself. We have several recitations that we give each morning in companionship study, and this one could possible be my favorite. (I might give one of these each time until they are all given because I love them so much. :)) It states: My Missionary Commission I am called of God.My authority is above that of kings of the earth.By revelation, I have been selectedAs a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ.He is my master, and He has chosen me to represent Him--To stand in His place;To say and do what He himself would say and doIf He personally were ministeringTo the very people to whom He has sent me.My voice is His voice, and my acts are His acts;My doctrine is His doctrine.My commission is to do what He wants done, To say what He wants said. To be a living modern witness, in word and in deedOf the divinity of His great and marvelous latter-day work.How great is my calling! -Bruce R. McKonkie I love that!!! Missionary work truly is a blessing, and not just full-time! We are really emphasizing the family mission plan and the ward mission plan in our ward right now. It is so key!! I am finding just how much the missionaries need the members. My companion has had 9 out of 10 people that she has taught and seen baptized, who were found through members. So please continue to be great, and pray daily for missionary oppportunites!!!! I love you all, and hope you have a splendid week!!
