Oh wow this has been a crazy week, literally has gone by so fast.
This week I have been focusing on becoming more Christ-like, It's been an amazing week!
Sunday Devotional was really awesome! (like always) but the most amazing thing about Sunday night was watching an old devotional by Elder Bednar called "Character of Christ" I was so so inspired to be better.
After devotional, the district older than us left. It was a bitter-sweet thing because they are some of the coolest people I've ever met. However, now we're the oldest district in the Zone! CRAZY!
Tuesday night I got to sing in the choir. We sang "Consider the Lilies" If you haven't heard that song, you should look it up because it's beautiful! The speaker for the devotional was Lynn G. Robbins of the 70 and his wife. They were awesome! They reminded me that I can't be afraid to open my mouth because we have a license to teach!
Wednesday I got to be a host for the new sister missionaries again. It brought back soo many memories. The day I got here was one of the craziest, most emotional, awesome days of my life. I feel like it wasn't that long ago, but now I've been here for over a month. To think how far I've come is insane... but I still have a long way to go!
Man I've had an awesome week! I loved the packages I got! Mom the Halloween package was so cute! My kasamas and I love the mustaches and the Homemade Carmel Corn is my favorite! I got some krispy kreme donuts that were gone in about 10 minutes from Michele. Grandma and Grandpa Bentley sent me a letter and a cute packet they're giving to the new missionaries in their mission in Pennsylvania. Aw thank you all so so much I love you!
Okay but by far, the highlight of my week was yesterday when I got my travel plans! woot! I leave a week from Monday on Nov 4th! Salt Lake to Seattle to Tokyo to Manilla to Laoag-
Awww guys I'm so excited! I'm going to be a real missionary!
Being a missionary is so awesome because you realize even more so that there is no such thing as coincidence miracles happen all around us! I have become so lucky here at the MTC! My savior Jesus Christ is refining me and I'm becoming more and more like him everyday!
This is the true church! I know it. I know that if anybody were to read and ponder the Book of Mormon and then ask God of it's truth then the spirit of the Lord would manifest it unto them! Ah man I love this gospel, It brings me so much joy!
Thank you for all your love and support!
