CH 3: Meh it's okay so far

The Gospel is true. In the realest way I know how. through experiences. It wasn't just a peaceful feeling after reading the scriptures. I used the scriptures to show love towards my zone. One of the missionaries was feeling a bit out of it and down and somehow... even though i couldn't think of anything to do, I found a verse. It uplifted him and I know that through him, countless more will be blessed in the next few years. I love my district and my zone. And though the Lord has assigned us to do this additional work, with his help, I know that I will be given what's necessary to bless and help those around us.
I do miss my family but I'm feeling okay. Yes, homesick, but that's normal. It's how I know I was cared for and loved by my friends, family, and mostly everyone in this email list. I'm losing myself in the work and though I do love all of you, I know I need to be here. I love my investigators, and every day I can feel my love for the gospel and to my investigators grow. I'm gonna be honest, some days this week kinda sucked. like "broken heart and contrite spirit and I feel like I'm gonna poopin die" kinda suck. But by remembering why I'm here, and by seeing the joy this gospel can have on others, I'm constantly reminded that this is where I need to be. This is where I want to be. And this is where the Lord has plan for me.

Stay lit y'all
