October 26, 2015

Hey! We had a really great week. Now that the 4 of us live together its a lot more fun, it seems like there is more time in the morning to work out, and to read while waiting for the shower. I have a really good habit of waking up right on time and making my bed and praying. It makes a big difference in the day when we wake up on top of things, or if we wake up lazy. Something that would've helped a lot in high school but hey what can you do haha, I'll definitely apply it for the rest of my life though. 

We are seeing a lot of miracles. I love a quote that Mr. Tousa always said "if you're not getting better, you're getting worse". We always do self analysis in the mission, personally and in companionship. We see what things we need to start doing, what things we need to stop doing, and what things we should continue doing. We put about 3-5 things in each category and it really helps us to focus more on being efficient and effective. We cant fall into routines, we always have to be creative! 

We are being a lot more direct with the people who we teach. Some times we seem to beat around the bush and are scared to invite people to do things, but if we really love our brothers and sisters we are going to tell them what they need to hear, and what God wants them to hear. I love a funny quote that says "Friends tell you what you want to hear, but true friends tell you what you NEED to hear." I am only appointed for so much time, I need to use it as wisely as possible and what I have been called of God to do is bring his children unto him through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end. If not now then when? Today is the day to receive the blessings of an eternity! 

I love the Book of Mormon. It is so clear what God has in store for us, and how we are going to receive it. Obey the commandments! Its so clear. The consistency, every single day, don't be lazy. Pray, Read the scriptures, Apply them, and go to church on Sunday, humble yourself, repent. He loves us so much, what are we doing to show him that we love him too? Take advantage of the blessings! :)
Love you! Have an amazing week! Remember the little things!
