Thank you so kindly for your email this week!
I love how it was centered on Humility and a little bit of desperation. What a glorious combination.
The Photos I attached are of our service project and the young man is T G a friend from the Wrekin ward.
We went to the park today with our District and Elder D let us use him camera so there are some fun photos. Our friends S and K M.... we love them so much and they are a miracle of faith and tracting. We ended up finding them a month ago and they have come back to church! The blessings of this gospel are so brilliant and we are grateful for the M Family~ they really have adopted us as their own.
My greatest love centers on you glorious sons and daughters of God!
The second family is The A's. They treat us so well and they are an incredible blessing to have in our ward. At one time P was the Bishop in Italy and I have tried my Italian on him every now and then only to get a laugh ;)!
I love this work the Friends that I have made and the talents I have obtained ( Like eating with my hands... trust me its a talent) are never to be forgotten.
I Love that Elder D and I are working hard with two families that are coming BACK to church and are working with two families who are interested in the church!
I try with all my might to never compare my efforts to anyone else whether in this mission or in any around the world.
I wanted to share a simple poem from a mission UNKNOWN.
Ode to A Mission
A mission is a strange experience. It is a trial and a test.
A mission throws you at the worst, yet teaches you the best.
I’ve never been so happy. I’ve never been so depressed.
I’ve never felt so forsaken. I’ve never been so blessed.
I’ve never been so confused. Things have never been so clear.
I’ve never felt my Heavenly Father so distant. He’s never been so near.
I’ve never been so discouraged. I’ve never been so full of hope.
I feel I could go on forever. I think I’ve come to the end of my rope.
I’ve never had it quite so easy. I’ve never had it so tough.
Things have never been so smooth. Things have never been so rough.
I’ve never traveled more valleys. I’ve never ascended so many peaks.
I’ve never met so many nice people. I’ve never met so many freaks.
I’ve never had so many ups. I’ve never had so many downs.
I’ve never worn so many smiles. I’ve never worn so many frowns.
I’ve never been so lonely. I’ve never had so many friends.
Boy, I hope this is over soon. Wow—I hope this never ends
This couldn't explain my feelings more perfectly.
I love the Lord and He is the Master of this work.
Till next time,
