I hope you all had a good week! Mine has been an adventure to say the least. There has been an all time high on sick missionaries which means my schedule has become more busy than ever. On top of that I have become district leader to the Assistants, so that means I need know the missionary handbook like the back of my hand. I am so under-qualified.
I normally don´t share health stories because they are either way too gross or just too dumb. However, this week on missionary got chicken pot. He is isolated in his room currently and is unable to leave. We have already sacrificed his companion to be stuck with his so if he gets it too it will be quite a shame. So far he has enduring. However, that isn´t the worst part. As most doctors know (but I didn´t because I repeat I AM NOT A DOCTOR) chicken pox is more contagious before there are a ton of pimples. This missionary attended district meetings before he had a lot of pimples. So he was around members of the district when he was most contagious. We will know in about a week if the chicken pox has spread to other missionaries or to the entire zone. It has been quite a week.
Despite all of this, I have found a new favorite scripture in the Book of Mormon. It is found in Alma 26: 35 ¨Now have we not reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began; yea, and my joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things, and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will repent and believe on his name.¨
I belong to a wonderful mission, with a wonderful Mission President, with wonderful companions and a wonderful gospel. I have a loving family with some of the best brothers anyone could ask for. They aren´t perfect but hey you can´t ask for too much. I have a loving father and mother, who have supported me in everything I have done except for whenever I pushed off cleaning the bathroom. Fun fact I actually enjoy doing the dishes now. Because of the Holy Temple, I will live with them forever.
I have wonderful friends who have also supported me in ways they cannot imagine. They have been examples to me, and an uncountable blessing.
I have a Savior, who has never given up on me, and never stopped believing in me. He has showed His love in uncountable and incalculable ways. I know that He lives.
