Ok, so I am going to ask you to do something a little difficult haha I am going to ask you to look back into my MTC days for a second 🙂 So in the MTC we had this devotional, and there was an area of the 70 there with his wife, and they gave a really awesome devotional!! Ok, so fast forward to today!!! Well… yesterday and the day before that haha because we had our Stake Conference and he and his wife were the ones from the 70 there 😀 His name is Elder Charles!!! And yesterday after Stake Conference was done, I went up to him and shook his hand and I asked him if he remembered me, and guess what he said!! “Of course I remember you! You were in the MTC last time I saw you!” I totally died inside of happiness!!! He is so amazing! He was able to tell me some things that I really needed to hear, and it really lifted me up 🙂 The Spirit was so strong when he spoke and I just couldn’t help but smile 🙂 This week we also had a Tausch, which was really good and loads of fun! Sister Brinkerhoff also got to stay over at our apartment in between stake conference sessions 😀 I love that woman!!! Her golden, Sister Harwood, is so adorable!! She looks like supermodal cute haha Sister Moore is like super adorable as well 😀 Like right now she has a bun in her hair with a little bow underneath the bun 😀 So Adorbz!!! Sister Gunderson is super adorable as well!! Her hair is all cutzie, like always, and she is wearing a polka dotted skirt! How adorable is that?! Long story short, missionaries are awesome! Haha A scripture that was really able to help me was:
” And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.” -D&C 84:88
If you ever feel alone, or sad, or stressed, or any not good feeling, you are NOT alone. God loves you so much that he has sent Angels to be on your right and on your left to give you the strength to keep moving forward, to keep doing your best. Trust me, I know that it is hard and that sometimes it seems like you really are alone in that moment, but I can very well assure you that you are never alone. You are never unloved. You are never forgotten.
Always and Forever,
