week 14

I think every 6 weeks my blog letter home will be about trusting the Lord.

Transfer emails came this week.

Sister Judkins and I really thought we were safe because we were in the middle of her training! 


Sackley, Mallory........ Transfer and Train

This is a joke right?

I've thought a lot about the last 3 months the last couple of days. Everything that has happened so far on my mission was NOTHING that I expected. Our joke is that the Lord won't have any more curve balls to throw at me next transfer! But I know there will be, because there always is.

I have gained a strong testimony that there is no growth in the comfort zone and there is absolutely NO comfort in the growth zone. I'm terrified for the upcoming week, but I know that the Lord has something in mind. He knows what He is doing, and I just need to take a chill pill and calm down.

We read a book every morning in companionship study called, "Adjusting to Missionary Life". There is a part that says, "Think of the worst possible thing that could happen, and if it's something the Savior could help you with, move on without fear". 

Move on without fear.

This week the Lord is going to help me as I go to pick up my newest greenie. He is going to bless her with patience. He is going to bless us with strength to do His work in this new area. He is going to help me as we try to navigate where the apartment is, where the church is, and where the investigators are at. He is going to help us as we get lost as we walk and bike around town. I officially have no knowledge to lean on, only Him. It's scary, and so exciting at the same time. 

Am I terrified? Yes. But I have faith. Faith is an incredible thing, and I know that as my new companion and I act on our faith, the Lord WILL bless us with miracles. 

Let's do this.

Love ya!
