Ch 81 Foreigners

Some Spiritual kwan first. You know, sometimes I am just utterly surprised with where we are right now. I know I may not look it, but this is the most emotionally exhausted I have ever been in my life. I was expecting that to be far in front of me, say in a marriage, or at the birth of my first child. Then again for most of my life I never expected myself to be here to begin with. Lately though I've been thinking about what we've been doing and you know what? I think the entire process of missionary work is a miracle. 

Yesterday we were just walking through our area when a member who just moved into the ward called us in the street,
Immediately we talked to him, he let us inside the house and we talked for a while, about God, about testimony and what we need to do to be happy. I left that experience thinking wow. This guy didn't know us at all, but he warmly invited us in, we walked about something we hold dear and important to us, and though he didn't know us, he treated us like family. 

We are literally foreigners, maybe not as much for me, but nonetheless I believe that it truly is a miracle for us to be here. Because I know that it is only through the Atonement of Jesus Christ that that experience came to be. I know that it is only because of His sacrifice for us that I got to know that member. I know that it is only because of His everlasting love that I got to know you. And I know that it is only because of His infinite atonement that I am here. 

Oh also I baptized my aunt last Saturday. She is my 40th baptism and she is awesome.
