2 more days and I have 6 months in the mission. Como, que, WHAT. So crazy how fast the time is flyyyyying by. This week I decided to stop counting the days and make the days count. And it really was such a good week. We saw so many miracles. And its just such a testimony to me that obedience truly brings blessings. Our investigator that decided to stop talking to us decided to start talking to us again (WOOT WOOT) and I just love her with all of my heart. Even though she had decided to stop talking to us she didn´t stop reading or praying. Which is like unheard of in the mission. And she told me that she has started praying before reading and the other day she was praying and praying for an answer and she opened the Book of Mormon up to the perfect verse that was exactly what she needed. And it’s just such a testimony to me that God really hears all of our prayers. No matter if you´re in some random town in Argentina or the most famous capital of the world. He hears us all. “Heavenly Father desires that we drawn near to him so that He can drawn near to us” He is always waiting to hear from us and pour these blessings upon us, all we have to do is turn to Him.
“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.
Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.” Marvin J. Ashton
Something that I have gained such testimony of in the mission is the use of our agency. The way we use our agency in all situations is something that is so very valuable. Whether we are wasting our time on an argument that literally has no significance(which is a regular thing when you are with the same Hermana 24-7), or maybe wasting our time on people that aren´t seeking the best for us, or maybe wasting our time away in the things or the world or maybe saying things that really don´t need to be said. Whatever it is, it´s these little things that break us down. It´s these little things that hold us back from reaching our full potential. Every time we participate in these temptations of Satan we are taking steps backwards on this path that God has prepared for us. It´s so important that we see things through the eyes of God and not as the world sees them. We need to have Charity, the pure love of Christ if we really want to feel this joy and happiness that we have the potential to feel. I really have the greatest testimony of Charity. Because really it’s so hard to just let things go, to stop thinking about yourself and forgive someone that has hurt us. It´s even harder when you are with the same person for 24 hours 7 days of the week. But what I have learned more than anything is how much more we can grow in this life and learn if we just act in the way that Jesus Christ would act. Just put our selfish desires away and think WWJD.
I love the mission and I love Argentinos. And I love learning about Jesus XD lol okay I just really love this gospel with my whole heart and some more. The mission has CHANGED my life. So if you are thinking about going.. GO. And remember who you are and to write me and to enjoy life. Because lifes what you make it, so let’s make it rock!
