Oiiii minha querida familia!!Como vao??? I miss you alll!!!!! I JUST got to get onto the computuer! omg! We were stuck outside for an hour cause no one came to unlock the door for us to the family history center!
WOW I learned how much I LOVE studying!! When an investigator has a question and we say we'll look it up and return and report, hehe, we go home and it brings up tons of other questions that I had growing up but never really thought about or asked or kinda just pushed aside because I didn't know the answer ... and I would search them up and find things in the Bible and Book of Mormon that made so much sense and everything just falls into place and its the coolest feeling!! It's such a testimony builder when I realize that this gospel really DOES answer all the questions! If people would just be open to hearing us out they'd realize that we DO have all the answers! Even members need to realize that, I think. I never felt comfortable asking these questions because I was raised Mormon and thought I had to know everything. So I just wouldn't talk about it.
One big thing for me was the Godhead. It really was a tough concept for me to understand but I knew what we believed, they're separate beings, so I just accepted it and moved on. but when we have to explain it to people I realized I don't actually know what I'm talking about so I had to study. It's amazing how much my testimony of the gospel and the scriptures and the Book of Mormon and the nature of God has grown just from me learning and studying it out for myself.
I've learned so much about how we are all still learning and will CONSTANTLY be learning until we're perfected AFTER this life in yearsssssss and years to come. It's okay to have questions. God gave us that ability to think and question for a reason--that reason being to find out and when we do find out, that's when we grow and it builds that testimony! It's the coolest feeling ever. I looooove it! Funny, cause I always hated studying before... school, church, everything. haha. oh, the things you learn on a mission ;)
Thank you mom for the letters! I'm glad youre having fun with the stuffing ENVELOPES now haha. I will write a letter today for you cause I gotta goooooo!!
