We also had Zone Training with the Zone. So fun to be able to see some of my favorite people! It was great to be uplifted and inspired by the ZL's and others. I know that this gospel is true and I'm so happy to be serving here. Honestly it's not easy, especially this week. I seem to have caught a bug of some sort. Being a missionary and being sick is NOT fun. But the Lord still takes care of us. Somehow this transfer is already almost over and I'm not sure how! Time is flying so fast. Ah! I'm trying to savor every moment. Recently I've been studying about repentance and forgiveness. It's so, so incredible how powerful the principle of repentance is. For the longest time I just though that repentance was a big, scary process that you had to do when you messed up super bad. But that's not really the case. Repentance is so much more than talking to the Bishop! I've read the talk "Latter-day Saints Keep On Trying" multiple times and every time I think about repentance I just think about the phrase, "Twas I, but tis not I". How wonderful it is that we can repent daily and become "new creatures" (Mosiah 27:26). Through repentance we can become more Christlike.
Hope you all have a grand week! Be good :)
