The weight of your calling he perfectly knows.
Your path may be thorny, but Jesus is nigh you;
His arm is sufficient, tho demons oppose."
The Time is Far Spent #266 https://www.lds.org/music/library/hymns/the-time-is-far-spent?lang=eng
I need to be fixed in my purpose this week and not let anything hold me back.
A previous investigator M. Sister Dias (my trainer) and I taught him together, we found out he was still on parol and he would have to wait a loooooong time to get baptized. He got really discouraged with that cause he really wanted to be baptized. He also needed to go to jail for a few days or week or something to do some time... He didn't want to and said he wasn't going to go. We told him we need to be law abiding citizen... We didn't get positives responses from him and we got scared he was going to run for it... every email we got back from him after that he said he was fine and don't worry about me.... He then he stopped replying and we just knew he was in jail.Well last week I was going through all my dropped people and trying them all one last time. I called M's bishop to ask about him. AS of December 8th 2013 he has been an active member of the church. I could hardly contain my joy! I haven't talked to him myself yet but I hope to be able to before I leave or add him on FB when I get back. BTW FB is an awesome way to find people :)
So to sum this all up. I am learned that a missionary's work is never done. My work isn't done. Taking off the name tag means nothing. Its a piece of plastic. What matters is the name written on your heart. I hope after 18 months or 24 months Christ's name is written on ever missionaries heart even after the name tag comes off. We still represent Jesus Christ. I need to remember my calling isn't done. I haven't been released, just reassigned. I'm excited about that. There are people in other places that I need to help. They just all happen to be in Canada at the moment, or on FB or... Its going to be great! I hope you are all looking for those people God has sent you to.
Remember you are Braver than you Believe, Stronger than you Seem and Smarter than you Think
