I was also reunited with my MTC companion, Sister Greene! We had a special sister's training for all of the sister missionaries in the Utah Ogden mission. It was such an inspiring and motivating training. There are a good amount of sisters serving, I think close to 70. But the elders outnumber us 4:1. As sisters, and as women, we approach missionary work from a different angle. We are often more nurturing and compassionate. Because of this, we are not always as bold with our invitations. We are more sensitive to other's feelings, and we do not always hold investigators to keep commitments. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things that the elders do that are not the best, but the training was organized so that we would understand that we should be getting the same results as the elders are. There are a million different factors of course, we do not force people to get baptized just for a number, but it was great to be motivated and learn how to best use my skills as a sister missionary to help others draw closer to Christ. There are people who have been prepared by the Lord, who are ready and waiting for us to find them and share this wonderful message.
Reunions were sweet this week, and they made my heart smile. As I study the scriptures and learn more about my loving Father in Heaven, I look forward to our reunion in Heaven. I am so grateful to be able to learn and grow closer to him. I know that He loves me, and He wants me to be happy here on Earth. He has given me so many things to show His love for me- my family, friends, the scriptures, the sunshine, this gospel, even His own Son, Jesus Christ. I am so blessed to feel of His love and rely on Him every day for strength.
How will you prepare for your reunion with our Heavenly Father?
I love you all, and hope you are smiling!
