It was the greatest day.
Hector, our investigator that we've been working with for months, committed to being baptized January 16th.
This was the greatest Christmas gift I received this season.
We are working harder than ever. We received a training on the 23rd about being a CONSECRATED missionary. I am gonna dedicate everything I have to this work for my last few transfers. Every piece of my heart. Every cell in my body. Everything.
I love my calling as a missionary. it has taught me so many things. I think one of the most important things I've learned from serving is the enabling and healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. God doesn't expect me to be a perfect missionary. However, he do expect me to do my BEST and when I don't, the grace of the Savior makes up for the rest.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone.
How can you consecrated yourself more to The Lord?
