Right after Specialty Training, I had my interview with President Clayton, and it was awesome! I am so grateful for my mission president, also my mission dad, that cares for me and takes care of me. I am extremely grateful. I was the last missionary that came out of the building after the training, and I was on exchanges with Sister Reeves from Brockville. So that was fun. I was forgetful the whole time we're exchanging because of the stress and loaded information in my mind, but I'm glad for Repentance! And the spirit of comfort! =)
On Sunday, the topic at church was all about eternal families. They had 2 baby blessings, which is super cute! During sacrament meeting, I was expressing my gratitude for my family and the love in our families. We might not be the perfect family, but I'm grateful that we have the gospel =)
After church, we met with the Bishop. We shared to him about the new thing that's going on the mission and how we want to work with investigators, less-actives, returning member, and active members (Isn't that amazing? That's totally inspired! Every family members can be active because of it! =D ). He gave us names to work with, and he really is a great bishop! Then, he asked me if I have a high probability of getting transferred. I said yes because the Assistant gave me a little hint after Specialty training. He asked me for our mission president's number, so I'm guessing they're going to let me stay here for a little while because of my language. The ward wants a Chinese family to be sealed in the temple, and they need me to teach them in Chinese and translate for them for the family's temple preparation class. I am glad that I can be Heavenly father's tools in this mission. I am grateful for the talents and abilities that I have developed growing up.
I had a great exchanges with the Brockville sisters! I am grateful for the trust that the Lord have in me, he truly knows me and know my capability. I might not know it, I might look down on myself, but Heavenly father don't and he never will. =)
I am grateful to be able to strengthen my own testimony about my Savior these past weeks. I love my Savior very much. It is something that I have known growing up, and he was the person that's always been there for me throughout my life. He loves me, and I know He loves you (readers) too. There is nothing far more meaningful than to know that He performed the atonement for us. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John )
Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
