Then we got to go to the best lesson ever, and the Spirit was so strong! We taught about the Atonement of Jesus Christ, using Luke 22:40-44 (what happened), Alma 7:11-12 (what Christ suffered), D&C122:7-9 (what we know because of His sacrifice), and D&C123:17 (what we can do with our freedom from sin). It was a really incredible experience, I loved it so much :).
Being a missionary is seriously the coolest thing ever. I'm so excited to be here in Plummer with Sister Hulsey, and all the sweet people I've been able to meet. I'm just SO PUMPED AH! It's going to be a really good week :).
(By Berton Braley)
If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it
To work day and night for it
To give up your time, your peace and sleep for it
If all that you dream and scheme is about it
And life seems useless and worthless without it
If you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it
And lose all your terror of the opposition for it
If you simply go after that thing that you want
With all your capacity, strength and sagacity*
Faith, hope and confidence and stern pertinacity**
If neither cold, poverty, famine, nor gout
Sickness nor pain, of body and brain,
Can keep you away from the thing that you want
If dogged and grim you beseech and beset it
With the help of God,
YOU WILL GET IT!
