Hello My Dears,
Life is great here. I seriously cannot complain at all! We have been having great success and we have been working with the world's finest people. I'm not even joking. We have some of the best investigators. It's the best thing in the world! I love teaching them the gospel and seeing them put it into action and then seeing the blessings they receive because of their actions. It's a rewarding cycle of awesome. Love it. Couldn't have asked for better.
I'll go through our week real fast and then I have some stuffs that I want to say. Because I'm a Leavitt. And that's what we do.
This week we had President Interviews, Exchanges, lessons, Church, went to Vandalia, and did all sorts of fun things! We saw lots of miracles-- big and small-- and were just so blessed. The next few weeks are going to FLY by because we have SO much going on. The work is hastening! I love it SO much. I can't even describe. President rebuked me for not being as prepared foras I should be.... and here I thought I was focusing on the work really well. dah. I just can't win here. hahaha. Oh well.
I don't want to give too much away because then it might jinx it and there is no need for that. Sorry friends. You'll have to find out next week. :)
So the things I wanted to say.
Today we were reading in Mark during companion study and it was the part at the end of Chapter 10 where Christ heals the blind man. I think this is one of my favorite stories as of right now. The blind man in the story can't see (obviously), but he still recognized his Savior. Often, I think to myself, "Would I recognize the Savior if He came near me?" and that made me think a lot. This blind man recognized Him. Do I? And then it says, "Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called." Christ didn't go to the man. He waited for the man to come to Him. Because that's how the Savior works. He waits [patiently] for us to come to Him. He is always willing to heal us and help us, but we have to come to Him. I just loved that story.
Our whole mission is reading the 4 Gospels by the end of the transfer and it really has been one of my favorite parts of the day. I LOVE learning from my companion and seeing what sticks out to her and then having her teach and testify of the Savior and then on the flip side, being able to do that as well. The Atonement and Savior have become very real to me lately and I just want to talk about it all the time!
I love being a missionary. I'll catch ya'll later. :)
Stay safe. Be good. Know that I love you. But more importantly, know that the Savior loves you.
