Yesterday was a bitter-sweet day in the mission field for me. Yesterday I received an iPad! The iPad is to be used in my daily missionary work. No longer do we have paper planners and area books! Oh happy day! We now do all of it through an app! It is going to take some getting used to, but I feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity! The Lord is truly hastening his work! It is the most exciting time to be a missionary!
The bitter of our day yesterday, was discussing a situation that a sister in our mission is going through. Sister Jensen Parrish lost most of her family from CO poisoning. This accident is extremely devastating. Talking about it did bring much comfort though. I don't know how people can lose any one without the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sister Parrish's testimony is a strength to everyone here in this mission. Her absence is going to be missed EXTREMELY! Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
I have a testimony that God gives us trials for a reason. No matter how difficult or tragic things are, it will be okay. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, everything will be made right. He has a plan! We need to trust in that.
Families are Forever!
