Hey there everybody!
As a Sister Training Leader though I have become much more aware of my work as a missionary and just who I am in general. I know I need to be an example to the rest of the sisters. I have learned so many things already from the newer sisters as well as things I need to change so that I can be the best example I can be to them. It is hard, especially because things don't just change overnight. In companion study today we were studying Christ-Like attributes from Preach My Gospel. One of the first things it mentions is that without the Atonement we cannot change. I know that in order to change what I need to and become more like the Savior it is going to take humility and repentance every single day. I know that by doing that I can magnify my calling both as a leader and as a missionary.
Yes I am stressed but I am grateful. I'm so grateful for the trust the Lord has in me as well as for the opportunity He is giving me to grow. I know I am here for a reason and I hope I can do all I can to fulfill that purpose.
I'm looking forward to conference this weekend! I hope all of you will take a chance to ponder the words in Mosiah 2 and D &C 21 4-6 and then seek to apply those words by watching all the sessions of conference! I know that as we do we will be blessed by the inspired words we will hear.
I love you all! Have a wonderful week.
p.s. We made lunch for all the new and leaving missionaries this week. We washed a lot of potatoes...it was fun though!
