Where do I even begin with this week? My testimony grew in ways I
never expected. My ability to love and serve is stretched and
increased. I am the happiest missionary.
From the outside, my week probably didn't look like anything special. I
just flipped through my planner to see what happened that made this
week so special and I saw about 10 cancelled appointments, around 60
hours of proselyting, the typical meetings and English classes...
really it looks like a boring week from the outside! And to be honest,
I don't have any amazing or exciting stories for you! BUT! This week
seen from my eyes was the best week ever! I had the opportunity to
find people to teach all week long! I got to testify of our Savior's
love for us to our brothers and sisters over and over on the beautiful
center streets of Celje Slovenia. I got to work alongside my
companion who has changed my life in ways I cannot express. I got to
spend time with members of the true Church. I had the privilege of
SERVING the people in Slovenia for another 7 days. It was such a good
I will not lie... sometimes it is really scary to walk up to people
and talk about God... someone they probably haven't thought about since
Christmas. But I was reading this week the scripture that says that
"Perfect love casteth out all fear." So I realized that if I love the people
of Slovenia, I should not have fear in bringing them the message of
the Restoration (see video at bottom of "Learn More" page at the link).
This message will only make them happier. So I have
been working on perfect love for these people here because it really
does cast out all fear. I know the Lord loves the people here. His
only desire and intentions are for us to be happy and to receive a
fullness of joy. There is no doubt in my mind that that is what He
wants for us. With this in mind, contacting has been really good this
week. Finding people to teach is not just something I do between
meetings and events. Finding people to teach is why I wake up and work
out and study the gospel. I really love missionary work.
I really have no complaints, and if I did, I hope you wouldn't listen
because I would be lying. I am exactly where the Lord wants me to be.
I am doing what Christ would be doing if He were here. I simply love
life. Thank you again for the support and prayers. They are felt and
appreciated. I love you!
