This week was awesome! We saw a lot of miracles and I am excited to see what we can do this week. Last Preparation day, we rode a bus up into the mountains and went to this place called "Thousand Island Lake."
It was beautiful and we got a little hiking in which was nice. I think a good day really does start with exercise. I have found that the days I don't exercise hard are usually the harder and less successful days.
Now that my companion and I are healthy we are excited to see what we can do with more energy!
Exchanges were good this last week. It is hard for me sometimes, however, because I still feel like I have no idea what I am doing and it makes it pretty stressful to try to be a good example to the missionaries in my zone.
But I am also confident that God will make me into the tool He needs to carry out his work as long as I am willing to work hard.
I was able to exchange with Elder Anderson and Elder Stevenson this week and both exchanges went pretty well. These two are probably the ones who are struggling the most and I am hopeful that the exchange helped. Christ led perfectly and worried about his apostles because they could not understand fully. But for me, I am just not a great leader, so I am really relying on the spirit to guide me as I train these younger and struggling missionaries..
I think back to when I was a little younger on the mission and the struggles I had. My leaders then were so awesome and I learned so much from them, and I felt like they really inspired me to become better.
May God grant me with the blessing that I also will be able to do the same to those who need it.
(I hope you can be very happy! Come on! Come on!)
