For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. – Mark 8:35
Last week we had a meeting with the APs (Assistants to the President) and talked about sacrifice. Hermana Meroy and I decided that we needed to help the other Hermanas (Sister Missionaries) more, so this week was FULL. We went and did divisiones (Spanish for divisions or splits) in their sectors almost every day this week and it was incredible. I feel like we’ve been really blessed for this because we’ve been able to see how we can help the sisters better and love them more. Everyone has their own problems, whether it be that their investigators don’t want to go to church or something personal or they’re just tired and don’t know what else to do…going to their areas and working with them has really helped me a lot. I’m so impressed with the missionaries who despite everything, keep working and are so dedicated to serving the Lord.
This week, I’ve learned a lot about how to follow the Spirit. I am very underqualified to help people with their salvation or to help the Hermanas but God is our Heavenly Father and he knows what each person needs. I’ve seen that a lot this week. And although we weren’t in our own sector very much we’ve been able to find and teach families that are interested in the gospel and it’s just the best.
