July 28, 2014: Sunrise, sunset. . . Sunrise, sunset
Another six weeks have come and gone. Admittedly, it seems like a lot longer than that, due to all of the crazy moves and changes. But this next transfer I'm sure will fly past I'm sure.
|Here's our beautiful district, together for the last time|
The good news is, I'm not getting transferred for once. Well, kind of. They're cutting our area in half and giving half of it to some Sister Missionaries. They also get our apartment, and we're moving in with some other Elders. Their apartment is like 8 miles away from our area, and there's no word yet on us getting a car, so we have a bit of a commute on the bikes. But it's all good! Even if the Sisters are getting all of our favorite members, the Lord knows what he's doing. We'll just have to find some new even more favorite-est members to bring to church.
There's not too much to report. On Friday we had a ward Family Home Evening and we played lots of silly minute-to-win-it games.
On Sunday I gave a talk about suggestions and ways that we can all as members reach out to help others come unto Christ. Every member a missionary, right?
Spiritual thought: I was skimming through some Ensign magazines looking for cool pictures to put on our daily planners when I found this sweet quote:
If your premortal self could send you a letter, it would probably say something like this: "Dear self, please remember that your greatest desire is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ."
Do we understand who we are? And do we understand who we can become? I know for sure that each and every one of us really has "divine potential." We each chose to come to earth to follow God. So, if you want to feel real, eternal happiness, just do that. Follow him. Be happy. :)
I love you all so very very much.
