This week was SO GREAT! On Tusday and Wednesday we had Sister Specialized Training at the mission home in Leeds. It was wonderful!!! The focus was on doing the little things for people that matter the most. We watched that Lighthouse video (the older Seminary one...about the guy who gave random things in his will to random people who had done and act of kindness to him that changed his life...you know the one i'm talking about?? I'm pretty sure we watched it for FHE once upon a time) it was soooo good! You truly never know how a little act of kindness can make the difference in somones life. We also focused on love, how love changes everything. There is a sister here named Sister White (oh man i want to be like her ha) She said that one of the most important thing she learned was loving people, and seeing them how God sees them. She said that each morning she prayed, "Please bless i can show maybe just one, just one person how much you love them today. That in some way they can feel through me your love." That hit me so hard. When we knock on doors we only have just seconds to tell them our message, but i never thought about leaving behind love. Oh how that made all the difference this week. Focusing on "How much does God love this person...How can i show them how much God loves them...how much he yerns for them to come back home". That is what his work is all about. Love. i LOVED Sister Speicalized Training! We (all of us sisters in the whole mission...which is only like 20 of us ha) were able to spend some quality time with each other (which doesn't happen ha cause we're all spread out pretty far from each other) and to learn and grow. Also to spend some time with President and Sister Lindley. They are SOOOOO WONDERFUL!!!!!
Can you beleive it's December on Thursday?! Time is just FLYING!!! Less then 4 weeks i'll be talking with the people i love the most!! How wonderful will that be :) I love you all so so much and I hope this week is a happy one! I love to the moon and back! Cheers!
Love, Sister Brown
