This is a post for all those who are about to serve missions/considering missions/are a member missionary/maybe someone who isn’t a member/that really means anyone. 🙂 Tehe! I say this all the time, but I mean really mean it, I wish I could shout it from the rooftops…
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!!!!!
Ok moving on. So I love being a missionary. I love sharing the gospel. I love talking to people. But I also really love adrenaline rushes. Haha, you may be thinking, “Why are you serving a mission? You should be riding motorcycles, or bungie jumping, or be on Wipeout (secret dream there), or anything but a missionary.” But I can tell you that the biggest rush I get , where I’m fist pumping and laughing my head off, is when I share a message that truly makes me happy.
Can you believe that? I hope so! The message I go out and share every day is true! So why wouldn’t I get a HUGE rush when sharing it!?
I think it all begins with my love for my Savior. He has done so much for me. He has helped me realize who I am, where I am going, and what I can become. How? Because He restored His gospel again to the earth! Goodness gracious I’m the luckiest girl to be able to wear His name over my heart each day.
I always send pictures home to my family… I mean that’s what a missionary should do right? So my parents always claim that I make “funny faces”. Call it what you may Mom and Dad, but I claim it’s the excitement I have for my calling. Every time I’m “chessin'” a smile, I’d like to think it’s because I’m really happy I’m doing what I’m doing. 🙂 Look at the following….
Book of Mormon in my hand on this one… just saying
Now that you’re thinking, “Is this really normal joy to have as a missionary?” I can tell you that YES! It is normal! Why because I say yet again… IT’S TRUE.
And yes I can in fact make normal faces…
I am surrounded by God’s love each and every day because of what I have. I can say I love my life. I love what I am doing and I love life! I have the biggest rush ever with what I get to do. I get to teach people about Christ every day. And it’s through His love that I can be happy. Are you unhappy? Come ask us about Him. Come feel His love rushing into your own life. I promise you, He is always offering it!
