This has felt like the longest week being back at Temple Square, yet at the same time, it has flown by. This past week, we had Elder Clark visit our mission again for the Mission Tour. He came to do a Mission Tour here in my 4th transfer. It was an all-day training that the mission had and I learned so much. It was such perfect timing because I need all the help I can get now that I’m back at Temple Square. I won’t lie, it’s been a challenging last week for me. So much change has happened in such a short amount of time and like I mentioned before, I’m not the best with change. I’ve been trying my best to hit the ground running and just forget myself and go to work. I know my companion is having a lot of struggles right now too since she is brand new in the mission field. I want to set the best example that I can for her, but I feel like I need to be retrained as a Temple Square missionary! Maybe I’m just being hard on myself and holding myself to really high expectations, but it’s been a struggle for me.
Anyways, we had a really cool experience today! I have learned, especially from outbound, that exact obedience brings miracles. We only had a few more minutes before PDay started and it was so tempting to just go downstairs early and pack up for the day. However, I know from previous experiences that obedience is so important on the mission! We ended up meeting a man who is interested in learning about the gospel and said that he would love a phone call from us. It was so cool! Obedience brings blessings.
Alright, my time is up and I need to go now! I love and miss you all!
