This is also going to be a short email.. like Erin's. Anyway, the Most exciting thing this week was that it rained yesterday and there was a lot of lighting. This has been the first time it has rained for months. Also, We had to write a few things for one of the members, I think it was for the ward history, so I will share a small portion of it.
What 3 things have you learned while on your mission:
I feel like that since I have learned so much more of the Gospel that I have started to change into a better man. I still have a lot of changing to do, getting rid of old habits and replacing them with something better, but as I have taught the three main lessons I seem to understand my purpose more and more. I hardly understood the message of the restoration when I started on my mission, but the significance of the Priesthood is so much clearer than before. I will be focusing a lot more on the simple Doctrine of Christ; faith, repentance, baptism, gift of the Holy Ghost, enduring to the end, throughout my life.
- The sweet message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ: faith, repentance, etc. and how it's focus is to make bad men good and good men better.
- The power of the priesthood and its significance in the Restoration.
- The plain and perfect truth of the Plan of Salvation that gives purpose to my life and motivates me to continue ever onward.
Funny/embarrassing story while serving in the Baseline Ward:
One time while knocking on a few doors, an old 80 year old something guy, with a mustache, answered the door and I, not seeing clearly, thought he was a kid so I asked if his parents were home. It has also happened the other way around as well.
I have a lot of work to do.
Also, about the embarrassing story--- that happens a lot. A contributing factor is that most people have this storm door that is completely made of metal with a lot of little tiny holes made in such a way that they can see us, but we can't see them. We call it the confession door.
