The Awesomeness of Being a Missionary

Monday, 27 June 2016

Dear family and friends,

Wow, I love being a missionary here in Georgia!

Each day becomes better and better. I've been learning so much about how to become more like our Savior. How to love. :)

As we have been keeping prayers of faith in our hearts, and dedicated our time to the Lord, we have been greatly blessed. Our teaching pool (the amount of people we are teaching) went from nearly empty to overflowing in only a few short weeks! We haven't even had time to go knocking on doors lately, because we've been so busy with appointments!

So many amazing people to teach! I keep getting reminded of how much I love the people in Georgia. :) 

I love seeing the eyes of those we teach light up as we share our messages with them. One of our investigators, a sweet elderly woman named Mamie, is always so enthusiastic about what we share. We taught her the Restoration and the Plan of Salvation, and both lessons she was constantly saying "Oh!" and had the sweetest responses! Her face lit up as we shared each message. :)

We went on exchanges this past week with our new Sister Training leaders, and ever since then, I've seen Sister Archer become a new person! She is lovingly bold, she is more diligent, and she's opened up a lot more! Exchanges are amazing. It has been so exciting to see Sister Archer blossom from an innocent, terrified "greenie" to a bold, loving, more confident missionary. She is amazing!

Memorable moments:
-One of our investigators asked us, "What is the origin of curiosity?"
That was an interesting subject... :)
-At the library today, a random guy started asking about our messages that we share and our beliefs, and he then tried to convert us to his religion. :D

My invitation to y'all this week is to check out! Go there and register! It's an amazing website that the Church has been working on and there are a ton of fun service projects on it! If you are looking for opportunities to serve, that is where to go. It is amazing!

I love y'all. Very much. You are incredible and have amazing potential! Keep smiling and being faithful! Remember you are loved! You can work miracles as you are faithful! 

Have a blessed day,
