doing really good! I'll send some pictures! But gosh. Today is transfer calls and this week is kaichos last week. Crazy! Okay. So gosh. This week I had a huge epiphany and was really humbled haha. Let me share. So I'm not gonna lie to you all... This transfer has for
sure been the hardest transfer of my mission. But at the same time it's been the transfer with the most miracles. Packard shimai and I are very different people and that's okay. But sometimes we have a hard time getting along and in order to see all the miracles we have been seeing we have to work really hard on our relationship and let me tell you it's totally exhausting. But this week I was reading the Book of Mormon and ya know in mosiah 24:14-15 it says about God
strengthened them so they could bear their burdens with ease? Well I read that and it made me think of this talk by elder bednar so I read it and it was so good! It's called bear up their burdens with ease. He talked about how we need trials so we learn to rely on the atonement.
Then he said that we need to learn to pray for the strength to overcome, change, or accept our circumstances instead of praying endlessly for God to change things according to our will.... That hit me so hard! Because gosh I prayed so hard all transfer that one of us would transfer. But I realized that God didn't send me here with Packard shimai to teach me to pray really hard for a new companion. He called me here to learn and grow. And yeah it's not easy. None of this
transfer has been easy. But gosh. I've learned so much. And I've grown so much and it's awesome. And if anything I've learned to rely on the Atonement for strength to make it through. So my prayers have changed a lot. Instead of praying for my situation to change, I'm praying that
I can change. And since I've had this realization I really have felt like a huge burden was lifted off my shoulders. Not that it totally disappeared but that God really is strengthening me and helping me through. I've really grown a lot this transfer and I'm so grateful!
Anyways. I don't have a ton of time left but I just wanted to share the change of heart I experienced this week haha. I love you guys! And I'll let you know what happens with transfers next week!
