Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I am sorry that I was so late to tell you all this but things here are so different. I cant believe how time goes by so fast! It's scary, but at the same time I have grown so much in learning the gospel and in seeing the people through God's eyes. Sometimes we go through life seeing the shell of people and making decisions based on that but with God's sight we see the sweet fruit that is within all of God's children. It goes from a dim light to a glorious radiating light that makes us see how blind we have been. At least that's how I have felt lately as now I see the amazing opportunities that he gives us each day to change people's lives.
Today I found out that one of
the missionaries that I was with in the MTC broke down and his anxieties didn't allow him to stay on his mission for the 2nd time. It broke my
heart. I was asking myself WHAT DO I SAY, WHAT IS THE RIGHT ANSWER? As I
broke down in tears, the only thing I knew was to pray, and as the words
came to me, I only thanked him for his willingness to fight and get up
and try once more and that I would always be here for him, that God had a
purpose for him. Sometimes we will face storms that will brake through
all our defenses but knowing that Christ gave his life for us so we wouldn't suffer lets me know that when the storm passes and those clouds
drift away, his redeeming light will grant us strength and an assurity
that we can get up and fight. I know that all of us can do it and fight
through all this and on our journey pick up those souls that might be
under all the broken pieces and cant see that light!
I love all of you
and keep you in my prayers!
