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.

August 5th Update

P-days, ladies and gentlemen. P-days are wonderful. Today we had a zone activity, and it consisted of watching church movies and eating food. I forgot how watching movies really can be so relaxing! We watched God's Army. That movie is a little chreca. We were all scandalized when the missionaries get married in the end. What a crazy depiction of missionary work. But at least it was funny to watch it.
I had some good quality time to write in my journal during the movie. Sometimes that's kind of my way to work things out. 
In life, sometimes it's super easy to get caught up in the details. That "one track course" that you can see in your head, and if it doesn't work out that way you can get really stressed out. But when it boils down to it, with the things that happen in our lives we can ask ourselves two questions: Are you having fun? Are you learning?
Right down to the most perfect person you see, we are all fighting our own demons. We all have things that are hard. But if we're all trying to become better everyday that what we were yesterday, there's really nothing to be ashamed of in our efforts. We are God's Children. He loves us. He trusted me to teach His gospel already full aware of all the imperfections that I have. He gives us our opportunities, even though He is fully aware that we are not perfect. I don't know why we expect to perfect when Heavenly Father sure hasn't ever expected that. 
If we continue on the path of righteousness we have chosen, we have every right to claim the blessings that we have been promised. We may have that one track course picked out for our future, but that's selling ourselves short. Life is meant to beautiful and joyful. We're just here to do our best. That's all Heavenly Father wants and He loves us. We've got so many goals, but if we really have faith in Jesus Christ, we will know that as long as we try our best and have fun, He will give us the desires of our hearts. And He knows those desires more than we do. 
You'll never know when opportunity will come out of nowhere that will change everything. All we need is a heart full of faith and put our faith in Christ. 
I love you guys, and I hope you have a great week. Enjoy the journey!
