Progress is Progress no matter how small.
This week I had the amazing opportunity to see one of our beautiful 4 members feel the Love of Christ. Sometime in life we feel unworthy for the blessings of heaven- as if we’ve done so much wrong, we can not be forgive. This is False. There is always forgiveness and you can always be worthy through Christ’s Atonement.
Partaking of the Sacrament is the holy ordinance that we are able to do each week- committing ourselves to follow Christ. As we prepare to partake, we are repenting and changing our hearts. The act of partaking the bread and water symbolizes our inner promise with God. He will give us his spirit if we follow his commandments.
I know this is true. I love talking with people everyday about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ!
I love life!!

Adventure of the week:
I was screeched in and it was SUPER FUN!!! The challenges that I had to do include:
1. A shot of Cough Syrup
2. A shot of Cod Liver Oil
3. A hunk of Bologna
4. And kissing a 15 year old Cod fish!!
There was music and dancing and you have to dress up like a fisherman. The Branch put it on for us as we traveled 3 hours to district conference this weekend.
Testimony of the week:
When you need help- ask for it. I have meet many people who visibly need our help on the outside and ask for it too. Sadly, I can’t to do much for them. What I’ve come to realize is that asking for help on the inside is harder the people here than the outside.
What do I mean by this…
Outside: clothing, food, transportation
Inside: inner happiness, peace of mind, relationship with Jesus Christ, Testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Think about what is hardest for you? How can we rely on the Saviour for help. Our temporal and spiritual needs are more connected than we think. I know they are one in the same.
I love Newfoundland and life out here!! Summer is here and I LOVE IT!!!

HALF WAY.
The middle, median, hump, tipping point.
At the half way point of the mission the lesson that I am beginning to understand now is that ‘Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear’
There are a few principles are prevalent with this idea.
1. Fear rarely has the power to change our hearts, and it will never turn us into people who love God and desire to obey what’s right.
I have thought about what goes into changing someone’s heart- their inner most desires and reasoning behind action. To help someone see that the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is here, we must teach and learn in love- not fear.God wants to change our personal nature to come closer to Him.
2. The Lord will fight our battles. He is not ignorant of the problems, stresses, anxieties, or sub-conscious challenges we face- He is not. However, rather than dwelling the immensity of our trials would it not be better and more enlightening to focus on the grace, goodness, and grandeur that is the love of God. He wants us to be happy. Focus on the good. Focus on trusting Him- the blessings that are readily ours!
3. We can be liberated from fear as we walk with humility, faith, and dignity as we are bold followers of Christ. Let us all be a little kinder, more forgiving, less offensive, and caring towards ourselves and our brothers and sisters.
I don’t know all the answers, but I share everyday the ones that mean the most. I LOVE THE WORK OF MISSIONARIES! I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON!
Funny section:
– In Newfoundland they call ants (like the little creatures that are small, and you spray with windex) ’emmetts’ and we were walking and this woman goes, “look at all those emmetts!’ I was very confused to say the least, but thought it was funny!
-Went to a beautiful place called  Eastport/ sandy cove.
– I ❤ Icebergs!
