Mar 18, 2013 Our Responsibilities as Missionaries

I am training!

I love my mission president. He helps me understand my purpose as a missionary so much. He talked this Saturday about our responsibilities as missionaries. One scripture that he shared was Helaman 3:35

35 Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God.

I think that is basically what the mission is about. It is about discovering how much you can dedicate yourself to God. This Sunday morning we went to look for investigators, when the ones we were looking for fell through, we passed by a former investigator. He was sleeping, but we insisted that we at least talk to him. He woke up and went to church with us! Yeah! We get blessings as we try and give more and more.

Another thing that I learned was the importance of obedience. I love Matt 16:26

26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We need to be perfectly obedient. It really isn’t worth it NOT to be. The Lord has provided a way for us to repent, but every time we sin, we lose blessings that we could have had. Wickedness was never happiness.

This Sunday is a special conference for all of Argentina.  We are going to try and have a bunch of investigators there.

Have a wonderful week!
