Angels on Errand

… more than just words! (Eishelle)

Hello everyone!   I want to thank you all for the emails that you’ve sent and the mail that I’ve received!   You guys are awesome and I love each of you big time.

Zone meeting was this past week and I just LOVE our mission president and his wonderful wife.   They taught us a whole bunch of things of course.   The Lord says, “I stand at the door and knock.”   Us missionaries are literally his hands knocking.   Every time we contact someone or speak to anyone about this gospel, that’s what we’re doing.
Without any detail these past few days have been very hard.   And I know what you’re thinking… that we go through things to become stronger people and feel closer to God.   Sounds cliche, doesn’t it?   I tried to convince myself that that’s why I’m going through hard times in this missionary work.   I thought those words but I just didn’t feel it.   But I honestly felt it when I was kneeling down to pray before bed.   It was the first time I’ve teared up because the work is so hard.   I think I took a lot of pride in the fact that I haven’t teared up because the work was so hard, but guess what?   The mission breaks you!!!   I lead the music in my branch for sacrament meeting and the closing song hit me yesterday like a ton of bricks.   ‘Mas Cerca Dios a Ti’ is what we sung. That’s ‘Nearer My God to Thee’.   The Spirit testified to me that this really was for me to feel closer to Him.   It was more than just words, it finally had feelings.
Big hugs and kisses,
Hermana E. Whitney
