Weekly Update 2 May 2012
It has been quite the week! As you know (or may not know) transfers was this week, and the wonderful news is that I am staying in St. Helen's! I love it here and I really believe that it is the "Gem" of the mission, the next transfers isn't until June so I will be staying here for a total of 6 months, which is quite spectacular actually to have two areas for a missionary under one year, either President is keeping me here because I'm doing really well here or ... well I can't see any other reason why I would still be here so I'll chose to believe that I am doing great here! A missionary hasn't stayed in the St. Helen's ward for 6 months in the last two years, so it really is a privilege for me to break that boundary.
Well... we've been through quite a lot together Elder Lamb and I, and we have another 5 weeks together before any opportunity comes to break us up. We have been able to utilise both our talents, Elder Lamb is an Electrician so we have been doing some Electrical work for members in the ward, we have even fitted some extractor fans while I have been able to serve them musically.
A great lesson and a realization that I have learn't on my mission is how far I really need to go. I'm a pretty weak person and I still have a long way to go, I just love how my mission has really humbled me.
D+C 18:10 "Remember that the worth of souls is great in the sight of God", now from a missionary perspective we obviously view that we are trying to "save souls" that we are out to save others, some missionaries never Baptize, you may ask "who's soul did that missionary save?", the wonderful answer is sometimes: "his/ her own" our own souls are wonderful to a loving Heavenly Father. Sometimes we may not save the "one soul" that we are supposed to look for, but in the end we were looking to save our own "one soul" in the end.
