I didnt mean to send that last email without anything. I just feel so rushed in this email time. Anyway, this week I have learned so much, and my testimony has really been strengthened. This week me and Hma, Tuquerres really put the goal of finding 10 nuevos to the test. We began contacting more, asking for more references and names in every lesson, and chatting with our lider missional and new branch president about plans that we could set and follow to help in finding these 10 nuevos. At the end of planning yesterday, the total was 3. Although I was a little dissappointed that we didnt meet this goal, I really felt more motivated than anything to make myself better. To make this area better, and become better missionaries, it requires alot of faith and diligence. That is shown through doing all these things that I was probably no fully completing, like street contacting, like asking for names,many things. I feel like you set that goal with us to elevate our faith, and help us to really be better missionaries, and realize that God also has everything already included in His plan for us. So thank you, President. Other than that, the temple dedication was amazing, and I feel so priveleged to be in Peru in my mission at this time. God knows exactly where I need to be, and its here.
I feel motivated to work even harder and apply the atonement in my life!
As we watched President Utchdorf seal in the cornerstone, he talked about the significance of fathers day. I couldnt think of any better way the celebrate what our Heavenly Father would want on His day. I thought about my father Phiklip Addington, and all the sacrifices he made throughout my life so that I can be strong in teh gospel, and the constant guidance of my mother. I thought about my companions parents who had just been baptized , and what they must be feeling for their daughter- pride, love, mostly love.
I am so grateful, Dad for everything you have given me. Never stop listening to the counsel of your Heavenly Father, he will always tell you what to do!
Happy Fathers day to Fathers everywhere and in heaven. May the example Heavenly Father sent us always be out guiding light. Ether is amazing, read it because I dont have time to type it.
