This church is true. The gospel has been restored. Families can be united together for eternity. We are all loved by a Supreme Being. There is hope.
Elder D. Todd Christofferson named the CRM the "mission of the un-discouraged." I'm internalizing that title and looking forward to the future with hope and optimism. My plan was to serve a full 18 months. But my Father's plan is different. But the beautiful thing is that His plan is absolutely perfect for me. It's difficult for me to feel happiness, but at this point I feel so much peace. All is well!
This week was pretty tough. Sister da Silva can read my mind and knows when I'm not doing well even when I tell her I'm doing fine. She's been my rock for two transfers, and I know the Lord has something so special planned for her. I love her like a true sister. She has seen me at my lowest and has raised me up as best as she knew how. I'm forever grateful for her service to me and to the Lord.
Also there was a 5.8 earthquake at 1 am and we thought we were surely going to perish. #still alive and kicking
Stay hopeful. Stay faithful. The Lord is cheering you on each step of the way!
