7.  1.15.13-Howes, Mechams-templeOur zone had a training on Friday and I got to see some of my great friends from my MTC district. Seeing them definitely helped with my home-sickness. I also got to play the guitar this week. It felt like home! I hadn’t played one since being on my mission.

We taught a 15 year old girl who has doubted the church since her baptism last July. I think that lesson was the first time I fully felt the power of being a missionary. Words were put into my mind at the very moment that I should say them and I felt so overcome with the infinite love that Heavenly Father has for this young girl I was teaching. I had the opportunity to share with her one of the songs I have written about finding your light. I’m humbled that I’ve been able to use my musical talents on my mission. It has been such a blessing!

In Doctrine and Covenants section 18 verse 15, it says “And it shall be given thee from the time thou shalt go, until the time thou shalt return, what thou shalt do.” I came across that verse and it really stuck out to me, because I have felt the Lord guiding me in everything I do since being on my mission. I know that He will continue to guide me until I return home. The next verse says “And thou must open thy mouth at all times, declaring my gospel with the sound of rejoicing.” Good is so good and knows us all so perfectly. What an honor it is to wear the name of His son, Jesus Christ and declare His gospel.
