My banner is clear

"The Fellowship of the Unashamed. 
I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed. - The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. 
I am finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. 
I don't have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. 
I now live by faith, lean on his presence, work with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven. My road narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He returns for his own He will have no problem recognizing me, MY BANNER WILL BE CLEAR."- Henry B. Eyring 

This mission has changed me! It has made MY BANNER CLEAR! I am an emotional wreck inside. I will be honest with you! I have absolutely loved my mission, yes there is been rough parts, but those amazing moments have definitely outweighed the bad. I don't want to go home. I wish I could have both worlds. But, I can't. So, I will strive to adapt to a new world. I will have patience in myself, and strive to accept Gods perfect Plan for me. 

As of this week....
We are teaching cute little K & J! They are doing so well and can't wait to get baptized! There is something different about teaching children, they are just so special! Please keep them in your prayers and their family. 
We had a lot of service opportunities this week. We did a new service I've never done, matching socks for an hour! It was pretty fun! We also were able to spend a couple hours with the Dry Creek Elders and move 2 non-members out of their storage unit! A miracle and tender mercy for me. The moments when I can let my boldness and bluntness come out are awesome for me. The guy has been struggling for a long time and he asked me what He should do....and I Told Him!! It was awesome!! Mind Blown:) 
This week has been awesome, a miracle week, and I've loved it.
This gospel is so true! I love it! 
I hope you all have an awesome week!
