This is so cliche to say but time is FLYING. I'm talking breaking the sound barrier kind of flying. ✈ This Wednesday I will have been on my mission for exactly 8 months. Good granny it's going by so fast. In honor of my eighth month mark I am going to tell you 8 things I LOVE about being a missionary.
🎉 8 Things I Love About Being a Missionary 🎉
1. I love seeing the look on people's faces when they open the door and see it's the missionaries. Classic.
2. I love being given substantial time to study my scriptures in the morning! My studies mean the world to me.
3. I love that biking in a skirt. 'nuff said.
4. I love getting to know members! They are so important in missionary work!
5. I love knowing the towns I'm serving in better than the people who live there. #I'mWorkingOnHumilityCanYouTell?
6. I love being totally cut off from the world. It has it's perks believe it or not.
7. I love meeting people and seeing how much God has prepared them for the Gospel.
8. I love seeing the change in others as they come to know the truthfullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their entire countance changes and they become so much closer to the person Heavenly Father Needs them to be. It's an incredible process to be a part of.
This week has been a lot of meeting members and making a bunch of suuppppeeerrrr awkward contacts. It's a goal of ours to see how many awkward contacts we can get. We are killing the awkward contact game!!!!👍
This week I have been trying really hard to be much more spirit-led in all aspects of missionary work. That includes my studies. I normally have a study outline that I follow but this week I've gone off the beaten path a little bit. I spent a whole study session studying "Patience." It was AWESOME!!!! Holy Hannah I will include a pic of the scriptures and I want y'all to read them cause they are so good!! I was looking to learn about patience, and I did, but I learned so much more about how much our Heavenly Father loves us! ❤
My scripture for the week:
"And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
And they did all eat, and were filled."
Jeffery R. Holland said "Don’t worry about Christ running out of ability to help you. His grace is sufficient. That is the spiritual, eternal lesson of the feeding of the 5,000.” Since he is much more eloquent with his words, I won't add anything to it.
I love y'all! Have an awesome week!!
Your fav sister missionary,
Sister Allgaier ❤
