A mission is first, for me/you and building our own strong testimony…

ImageIt was a pretty bad week.  All our baptism dates fell through.  It

is really hard to help people if they don’t want to change.

I’ve learned that a mission is first, for me/you and building our own

 strong testimony of Jesus Christ.

I am still in BurnsLake.  That is the life of a missionary of  The

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  I guess it is like

President Monson’s Sunday afternoon talk in General

Conference were he reminded us in that poem:

“GOOD TIMBER DOES NOT GROW WITH EASE;

THE STRONGER WIND, THE STRONGER TREES;

THE FURTHER SKY, THE GREATER LENGTH;

THE MORE THE STORM, THE MORE THE STRENGTH.

BY SUN AND COLD, BY RAIN AND SNOW,

IN TREES AND MEN GOOD TIMBERS GROW.
