GO AGGIES, and Blotz!
My second district meeting on Friday went pretty well! It started 25 minutes late, which wasn't good. those other elders left to pick us up at 10:20 when district meeting was supposed to start at 10:30 and it takes about 20 minutes to get to Mdantsane! I lovingly rebuked them and next week they're gonna be on-time! or else haha jk. I kinda had to cut some things out of district meeting because of time, but overall I think it went really well. I prepared well and thought it turned out nicely. Now I'm already thinking about what to teach in the next district meeting.
1 YEAR on mission...all of my planners
I've taken some time to kinda reflect over and think about my year of service here in Africa. I peeked at some of the goals that I have set for myself at the beginning of my mission and saw how I was doing on them. I've learned/experienced more than I ever imagined so far, and am super anxious and excited to see what this next year has in store for me. I am proud to be able to say that I have no regrets so far and that I have done the very best that I could in each of my areas and left them better than they were when I got there. I hope I have changed some peoples life, not only here, but in the eternities. I've been blessed to have been able to harvest and baptize some amazing people and hopefully have left a legacy of love in each of my areas!
Scriptures are, as follows:
For behold, angels are declaring it unto many at this time in our land; and this is for the purpose of preparing the hearts of the children of men to receive his word at the time of his coming in his glory.
Therefore, declare the things which ye have heard, and verily believe, and know to be true.
A talk, lesson, or an email doesn't need to be endless to be edifying! :)
