Has it really been a month already?
Congrats for being done with school! My thoughts have been with you all this weekend as I thought of the twins graduating and walking in their graduation robes and getting their diplomas. And everyone else, I love you all and miss you, and I think of you and pray for you every day.
I am not really sure what to say this week. It has been a wonderful week, as always. Sometimes I feel like I need to write home all of these positive things, but I want to be real too… we’re all human, right? So sorry this one will be a little short 🙂
Another thing that I really loved was a point from last night’s devotional. Elder Zwick of the 70 told us about how he was behind the construction fo the Portland temple. Unexpected rain came for 9 days, and they had to completely redesign the foundation. We will experience setbacks, but as we rely upon the Lord, we can completely redesign our foundation upon Him.
I am running out of time, but I love you all! I love the Book of Mormon. It brings me such peace and answers my prayers. I made a goal to read the whole thing again in the 6 weeks that I am at the MTC, and I am right on track. Today in the temple, I read the best chapters. 3 Nephi 8-11. My heart was so full, and I can’t ever deny the Spirit and the witness that I received today. Read them. Love them. Ponder them. Jesus Christ is the light and life of the world. Sometimes things seem so dark and hopeless and confusing. We don’t know where to go or what to do. But his arm is outstretched towards us, and once we take it, we will see His light and He will guide us in the direction we need to be. We can find Him through obedience. I know this and believe this with all my heart, for my heart burns with this knowledge!
I love Him so much. I wear His name on my chest every day, and I am learning of Him, trying to do as He did, and testifying of Him, so I can one day become like Him.
Vi voglio bene,
Sorella Emma Strong
