HELLLLLOOO FROM SNOWY UTAH!
Okay so this week, i'm totally pushing myself like crazy. the khmer is coming along for me. i'm learning 25 new words a day and hopefully by saturday, i'll be rockin my TRC - if you don't know what that is, ask someone who is an RM hahaha. i have little time again but i'll try to spit everything out!!!
So this week we did a cross teaching with the HMONG speaking elders and we spoke about christlike attribtues and how they don't come in one day and you wake up and you have all of them. christlike attributues come with time and you ahve to develop them but you have to pace yourself as well. the Lord won't give you these attributes but i can promise you that He WILL give you opportunities to develop them. you have to take every opportunity that he gives you. it's a great blessing to have a chance to becomel like the Savior. Pray to the Lord and consistently strive to be like the Savior everday. i promise you with all of my heart that it will make all the difference in your life day to day and for the eternities.
we talked a lot about the topic of the GRACE OF GOD. and how by the grace of god are we able to do things that we aren't able to do just as humans. have you ever thought about the fact that president hinckley travelled all the time and he was so old but was so active? how is it that he could do all those things at such an old age??? it's because he loved what he was called to do. he loved the people that he served and most of all he loved the Lord with every fiber of his being. i can guarantee you that the grace of god exists and that you will be blessed with the grace of god as long as you earnsetly strive to build the lord's kingdom by the small and simple things you do for others. it's a great blessing to have the lord love us THAT and THIS much. i love the Lord - He is SO good to us.
okay hey everyone will you all please send pics of yourselves!!!! CHARI THANK YOU for the pics!!! they cracked me up! i loved it but okay anyways
cheryl lant came to speak at our devotional last tuesday night and she spoke about how when you pray you should bea ble to see thE Lord's face in your prayers. he knows each and everyone of us by name and he know's every thought, desire, need, and worry that you have. just talk to him!!! and she always spoke about, WHAT IS IT THAT WE ARE?!?! as a missionary, i am sister missionary called of god and with the authority given to me, i will be endowed with the power to serve him to build his kingdom!!
everyone i love you all and most importantly the lord loves you the most!!! i love this gospel and the truth and happiness and trials that it brings to my life. it is the greatest blessing to be the Lord's missionary and i can promise you when you are on the lord's errand, you are entitled to HIS help!!! i solemnly testify to you that i know that jesus is the christ and that he lives and that he will come again!!!
