Something I love about the mission and life is that there are always new beginnings and God always gives us second chances and third and fourth....for everything!!
My last companion is from Natal, Rio Grande do Norte and I LOVE HER! I love all my companions so much and i see how the Lord blesses me with wonderful people in my life. We can't handle not talking and laughing together to the point that I haven't written in my journal for four days now :) I told Sister Peregriuno that she need to go sit in another room so I can actually get something done. haha I love her and reminds me so much of my first companion. I thought it was funny to start and end my mission with basically the same person :) I love how the Lord surprises us in the little things and gives us little blessings...
I have been re-reading all the general conference talks from this last conference and I really liked a talk where President Deiter F. Uchtdorf asks us a few questions:
Do we stand loyal to God?
Do we practice what we preach , or are we Sunday Christians only?
Do our daily actions reflect clearly what we claim to believe?
Do we help "the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted?"
Do we just talk the talk, or do we enthusiastically walk the walk?
I loved these questions and pray daily to the Lord so that I have the strength to really fulfill what the Lord requires of me. I love that there is always change in life because I recognize the need to be better and strive to be perfect.
We are meeting a lot of wonderful people and preparing others to be baptized but what I value the most are the daily spiritual experiences that I'm having in a place and with people I love!! I love this life!
