So I hit my year mark everyone. That is right! July 31, 2013 I entered the MTC and became a missionary. Honestly, I know without a doubt just as much then and probably even more now that this is the best decision I could have ever made. I have learned and grown so much these past 12 months and I feel so blessed to be a part of this work. This week, a guy in our ward said that a mission is the most selfless selfish thing we could ever do. How right he was! This is because we are dedicating our lives to the Lord but in the process we become the people God wants us to be. AH, I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY.This week was great. I decided that in the face of all this adversity, I could continue to be a pill and be selfish or I could have a serious attitude adjustment and remain humble and positive. I chose the second option! So the week really turned around for us.
Sis. Nordstrom has still been a lot of pain due to the whiplash so we decided that she should still rest but that we couldn't afford not to go out and work another 2 days. So we found some members that were willing to "babysit" her (haha I call it babysitting because she's my child and I def was a nervous "mother" leaving her for the first time) and we found a young women who was free for 2 days to come out with me and be my companion. And man did the Lord provide. Despite all the setbacks we have been having, we caught up with all of our investigators and our numbers! We even got all the numbers at the beginning of the week for our key indicators so that I could stay with Sis. Nordstrom and help her rest the rest of the week. The Lord saw that we were doing our best with the hand that we were dealt and He helped us out so much.
