Week 46

Dear Family,

What an amazing week it has been!  As always, I love the work of a missionary! 

The new camera is AMAZING!  Thank you so much, I reaaaallly do enjoy it!  It is so much better than the other camera I had.  I cannot believe the quality on it! 

I want to share some cool inspiring quotes that I found this week:

"No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted.  It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude, and humility.  All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God... and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we came here to acquire."  ('That We Might "Not Shrink" ' by Elder Bednar)

"Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better...  My declaration is that this is precisely what the gospel of Jesus Christ offers us, especially in times of need.  There is help.  There is happiness...  Don't you quit.  You keep walking.  You keep trying...  It will be all right in the end.  Trust God and believe in good things to come...  Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come."  ("An High Priest of Good Things to Come" by Elder Holland)

Ponder those quotes and read the talks that they come from.  They are absolutely incredible!  It will help you have a greater vision of why we go through trials, but how there is always hope.  There is always a light at the end of the tunnel; I can promise that!!   :)

I love you all so much - hope you have a great week!
