Thank you ALL so much for your Birthday wishes! You really all helped to make my 20th birthday extra-special and I will forever be grateful!
Heavenly Father decided to rain EXTRA blessings upon us this year when he gave all of the missionaries in my mission the TEEWEI black boxes in our car for my Birthday! Joy! It tracks our location, our speed, our bumps and whether or not we are buckled up. So exciting! All of the missionaries LOVE it SO much. Haha
Anyways, like always, this week was filled of amazing experiences of seeing God's hand at work. One special experience and probably the highlight of my week was being able to go into Newport Beach Temple with our recent convert, Guiti. Guiti was baptized a little less than 3 weeks ago and it has truly been such an remarkable experience being able to see her learn and grow in the Gospel. She radiates the Light of Christ from every part of her and brought a very special spirit as she enter the House of the Lord for the first time.
My heart was touched and I was reminded again of the importance of my calling. I have been set apart and called to represent Jesus Christ in inviting and helping others to come closer to Him. It is such a honor and privilege that makes all of the challenges and difficulties worth it. So worth it.
I know that I sound like a broken record; however, I love being a missionary. I love being able to share the joyous message that the Gospel brings. I love seeing the Lord's hand at work I love seeing people accept our invitations and come closer to their Savior. The Gospel is a message of joy in knowing who we are and the plan that our Father in Heaven has for each of us.
I love you all so much.
I hope you have a miracle filled week.
