August 11, 2014

Well another week in Bristol, TN! haha It's great here! It was rainy a lot and I love the rain! So that was fun.
We are teaching a guy from Guatemala!! And I get to speak Spanish! It is soo fun :) haha I love it! We read the BOM with him in Spanish and he prayed in Spanish and he said, "Please help me to know that these things are true!" and I was like yeaaaahhh!! That is sick! I love him! His name is Rocky :) hahaha. It's great!
We are also teaching someone who doesn't believe in God. That is always so hard to do...because everything we teach is centered on Jesus Christ and God. So we have been reading the Bible and BOM with him! It's great!
My companion Sis. Merrell is pretty great. I love her!

I just love being a missionary!!  I love everywhere I go!

I've definitely learned the principle of being patient with yourself and with others. I've learned that my WHOLE mission...but it just keeps coming up. Apparently the Lord is trying to teach me a very valuable lesson :) haha.
I KNOW for a fact that the Lord is aware of us in our situations. I've had lots of prayers answered and I know that what i'm doing is good. Moroni 7:13. and all things that are good are of God.

I am hitting my year mark this's crazy and I'm freaking out. I kind of hate it. It's crazy to think where I was a year ago. and how much I've grown! I've grown more than I ever thought I would. Missions will do that to you :) One of the very first things I learned while being out here is that you don't go on missions to change other people. You go on missions to change yourself so you are able to help other people use the Atonement to change for themselves. 

My mission is the best thing I've ever done :) I love it! I'll always be a missionary in my heart and spirit!
But anyways....

i love you and miss you soooooooo much! I hope you have a fantastic week and a better week! I know the Lord has many great things in store for you!

One of my favorite scriptures: 1 Cor. 2:9. I got this scripture when I was getting my patriarchal blessing. We don't know what the Lord has in store, but it's because He loves us and cares for us and knows us!

I love you and miss you!
Love always,
Sister Burr
