94: Hard lessons are learned on a mission

Just another week of teaching people about Repentance!

As I have become more and more experienced as a missionary, the more I have become affected by the agency of others. I means that in the sense that as people use their agency in a positive and righteous way, the more happiness and joy I feel, but the opposite also occurs quite frequently as well. When we explain things in such a clear way that they plainly understand what they SHOULD do, and then they choose to disobey the commandments of God... I can't really describe the level of anger and sadness that wells up inside of me knowing that people are having blessings withheld from them because of their disobedience to the commandments. It is really quite heartbreaking. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful enough to change our lives and bless our families, and some people just couldn't care less about the Gospel...

But I know that God lives and He loves His children so much. He sent His Son to be our Savior. Christ invites all men to Come unto Him. I know that through Christ we can all be forgiven of our shortcomings.

Well I wish that I had more time to write about how the week was, but this is all I've got time for...

I love this work. I love this people. I love this Gospel.
