My Testimony

DSCN0118[1] (1)

My mission, so far, has been the most amazing experience of my life. The mission field is really unlike anything else. It’s is such a great opportunity to learn what the Lord wants you to learn. I feel like I’m not the one doing most of the teaching, I’m more of the student. The Lord has taught me a lot through the scriptures, through the examples of others, and especially through experiences of both trials and successes. I’m now in my third area with my seventh companion and have gotten used to things changing around all of the time.

        The other thing that I want to share about my mission is how it has helped me to come closer to the Savior Jesus Christ. I know that this is the same work that Jesus Christ did when he lived upon the earth. He faced so much more opposition, hardship, and suffering than we ever will, but if we give it our all, as small as that might be compared to His all, He will bless us with success and mold us into who He knows we can become. I know that he is God’s son who was sent here to make our salvation and exaltation possible. I know that this is His Church and His Gospel. I know that if we will humbly come unto Him he will make us strong.

I really do love it here already and I know that this is where the Lord wants me to be right now. I feel it more and more every day. Praying in Tagalog has been really powerful for me.   I love being a missionary!!   I know that the Lord will help me to accomplish his work.  Alam ko po na sa pamamagitan ng pagbabayad-sala ni Jesucristo, Tayo can buhay sa namin mga pamilya walang-hanggang.” (I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can be with our families eternally). I know that this Gospel really does bless families!  This truly is the lord’s work. We are being prepared to teach the Gospel just as the people of the Philippines are prepared to be taught. When I testify of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I can really feel how important it has been in my life. I know that our Father in Heaven loves us. I know that he gave his Son for us, all of us.
