One month in the MTC!
Hello Family and Friends-
Well, I have been in the MTC for about a month now! ahhhh! It’s crazy. It doesn’t even seem real.
So, this last sunday I got called as the Sister Training leader. My district totally called it, and it happened. What is even funnier, is that Elder Watson is now one of the Zone leaders and Elder Butterfield is our District Leader. Haha. The same companionship all received leadership positions on the same day. That was fun. I know it is going to bless my life as I learn to become a better leader and following the example of the Lord.
We got our natives this week!!!! There are 13 total!!!! It is amazing! They are sooo cute, adorable, wonderful, and happy people. They are so great!
For Relief Society Sister Wixom from the general primary presidency shared a powerful message. When her and her husband were mission presidents an elder came and told her a story. He was confronted by a very ferocious dog one day and all he had between him and the dog was a paperback Book of Mormon. So, he decided to stick it out in front of him. The dog bit into it. When he opened his scriptures the teeth marks ended at the scripture: 2 Nephi 22:2. It talks about how Heavenly Father will always watch us and take care of us. It is really neat. Wow, what a story. Heavenly Father is wonderful! He will protect us. She also said that some of us may think we are not ready, or that we are not qualified, not good enough, not pretty enough, or talented enough. She said stop it. The Lord will not let us fail if we trust in him. This is soooo true! The Lord will help you no matter what!
Also Gerald Causse, 1st Counselor of the Presiding Bishopric, came on tuesday. He had some really good points as well.
-When the Lord gives you a calling, follow it.
-See people with the eyes of Christ.
These two things work really well together because as we follow the Lord we are able to see people with the eyes of Christ.
Well, this week has been eventful. I am keeping a positive attitude but I am super sick right now. The Elders in my district gave me a blessing. Watson anointed, and Kahng gave me the blessing. It was really powerful. They all have so much faith and I love them all soooooo much!!! Kahng is possibly leaving this Monday, which is super sad!!! I wish he could stay longer. Our district keeps getting smaller. Thank goodness everyone else is staying until the end.
Well, I love you all!
The gospel is true!!! I am so excited to share it with others. I am sad Creed is leaving this monday but I know he is supposed to be in Argentina at this time. He is going to bless so many lives!!!!!!!!
We get to see each other on sunday. I am excited about that. 🙂
Love, Orme Chamay
