My First 12 Weeks as a Missionary

The first 12 weeks of being a missionary has been stressful, exciting, difficult, rewarding, disappointing, and worth it. I have thought about calling it quits, but I always think about why am I out here. I'm out here because I love this gospel and the blessings it brings. I want to help family's be together forever. I want to help other people see that being here on earth is just the beginning. Our Heavenly Father has set up a plan for us to have eternal life. The first part of that plan is having faith in Him and His son Jesus Christ. As we grow our faith, we want to repent of our sins or change our ways to become better people. When we repent we become worthy enough to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized. The difference between the LDS church and everybody else? The priesthood. The priesthood is the authority of God, the permission to act in His name. That is part of my purpose as a missionary. Help people be baptized. I was able to do that this past week. I was able to help a 10 year old girl be baptized on the same day I baptized, Febuary 14th. It was exciting to see it happen. I was grateful for the experience. These past weeks have been difficult. In my area, we have plenty of potential, its just a matter of actually meeting with them and having lessons with them. Thanks for all the support and all the prayers. See ya next week, fellas.
