Why a mission?

The gospel is the most beautiful thing in the world. I know it's all true, and this knowledge has given me all the wonderful things of this life. I can't wait to share this knowledge with others.

June 17th Update

Cambios, cambios, cambios!
Hermana Phelps is heading out of Libertador, and so am I!
We share a chapel with Los Copihues, another ward. They've got 4 Elders there. But now, they're doing 2 Elders and 2 Hermanas in the wards. I'm pretty excited.
It's starting to get a little colder here.
We had some pretty crazy experiences this week. We talked to this man a couple weeks ago, and we were going to go see him. And his house burned down. We saw the smoke and everything. His name is Daniel Lopez. We went and saw him yesterday, and everything is burned. Everything. But, he had this stereo playing "How Great Thou Art". The faith in our Heavenly Father is pretty amazing. We sang him "Lead Kindly Light". That was nice. We're going to go this week and help him gut out the rest of his house. Also, we contacted an Elderly man who basically was going to die right in front of us! That's a bit of an exaggeration, but he'd had a work accident, and he said that he was still bleeding from his chest but there were just no more hospital beds. Things like that make you grateful for what you have, right?
Well, I guess this one's a short entry, but think about this:
Why did none of the Stripling warriors die? What does it say about their faith? What does is say in that chapter about their attitude on life?
I love you! I know that a sound mind is what the Lord wants that we have. And that through our faith in Christ, we can achieve it. (Helaman 5:12)
Love you!
Hermana Lovell
