“It becometh every man who hath been warned to warn his neighbor”

Last week, I was on Facebook, and one of the pages I have liked was talking about New Mexico being the seventeenth state to legalize gay marriage. One person commented and said that Jesus said that the person without sin should cast the first stone, and that if their gay brother got married, they would support him, because that was how God made him. I didn’t like that they said that God was the one who made him gay, because I know for a fact that he didn’t. So, I commented that God didn’t make him that way. Other people responded criticizing me, and saying, “how can you sleep at night?” I can sleep because I know that there is a God and that he loves me and everyone else on the planet. Continue reading

Missionary Shoes and My Endownment

This week a member of my ward gave me some shoes for my mission. My previous dress shoes were getting ruined: the soul of one was coming off. He gave it to me because someone gave him shoes for his mission, so he was paying it forward (now I get to give shoes to another missionary when I get older)

Yesterday, I went to the temple to receive my endowment. I now know why you must be worthy to enter the temple, for if you are not everything would seem really weird and silly. But, I know the things we do in the temple are from God, for I felt the spirit there. I am glad I went and I am looking forward to the next time I go.

I am a True Missionary

Mission Journal

 

When I walk ether from school to my bus stop to my mission, or from my mission to  my home, people see my missionary name tag and ask me, “Where is your companion?” I have to explain to them that I am a service missionary and don’t have a companion. Also, when I am walking home I am offered rides. They are worried about me just because I have a missionary tag on! I know that I am a true missionary even though I am not on a full-time proselyting mission.

Mission Report for Last Week

Last week we started indexing pictures. We index the names in the title. We don’t need to but we can look at the pictures. That helps me feel closer to the people, because now they are more than just names.

Yesterday, I went to a fireside for young service missionaries It was a musical fireside with Kenneth Cope. It was very spiritual and I could feel the love that God has for me.
