I can't believe everything that has happened sense I have left for my mission! It began with Elder Perry passing, then the legalization of gay marriage, and lastly Elder Packer passing! This will be one exciting general conference in October! On Tuesday President Toone got the mission together and we discussed that, as representatives of the church, regardless of our personal opinion, "marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children." Because I'm a missionary, and my purpose as a missionary is to invite, I invite all to read The Family: A Proclamation to the World. Study it. Memorize it if you will. Make it apart of you! I know that God is very award of each of us and how we feel. He has a plan for everyone of His children. I know my will is not always God's will but it is my constant goal to make God's will mine. I know when I do that is when I'm happiest.
I went on splits for the first time! Although it was not over night (because there are no other sisters in my zone to go on splits with) it was still fun to go on visits with the Relief Society president. We stopped by a old ladies house, Jodi Thompson, and she's not a member but Sister Clemens and I have stopped by before to check on her. She has dementia but is the cutest thing ever!
Lastly, we have this investigator Jordan, who we street contacted. He wanted to know how God fit into his life. We met with him and had an amazing lesson on the restoration but the worst part is we haven't been able to contact him sense! We're trying not to be the clingy GF but it's super hard when their salvation is on line! But like I said earlier, Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us, Jordan included. Thank you for all the love and support!
