Spring time, Repentance

This past week has been a great week! I still feel extremely tired, but that's a good thing. There is just always something to do, but that's what makes life interesting and fun.

Elder Wilkerson and I are exercising hard in the morning and eating well. I love to make salads. I fell healthy and happy. The Nunez didn't come to church again. But we had a great lesson with them. I still love the scriptures. It literally snows pollen in Georgia. I love to see all the trees change colors, so beautiful!

I love being a missionary. I love the opportunity to testify of Christ. I know he lives. He is our Savior. He bore our sins and afflictions. Because of Him we will all live again. All of us! Because of Him death has no sting. Because of Him we can be clean. We can repent. We can be perfected. Because of Him we can find joy. I know He lives!

We had a Zone Conference on the topic of Repentance on Wednesday. There have been times throughout my mission where I felt like Repentance was a burden. I didn't want to focus on it because I thought it would bring me down. I felt like I was just noticing on all the bad things I was doing and becoming depressed. But as we talked on Wednesday I realized how my perspective had changed. Repentance is a blessing. How great is it to know that we can truly change and be forgiven. If there is something in our lives that takes away the peace of the spirit, then we can change it. Repentance is that change. That change makes us happy. Repentance is a gift given to us so that we can be happy. Isn't it amazing how Satan can make something so beautiful seem so scary and harmful.

Have a great week!
