|At least the weather allows a new method for spreading the gospel!|
I have been thinking about the "worth of souls" a lot this week. There are so many prizes and titles in our world today that we sometimes forget the true meaning of worth. One thing I have really come to know on my mission is how much we are all worth in God's eyes. There is a quote I read this week that said something along the lines, that as we come to understand our worth, we will understand the worth of people around us more. It is so true. We have an investigator currently, who is someone who doesn't feel much worth in her home life. She always tells us how much she loves being with us, because we make her feel important. She feels like someone loves her when she is with us. I don't know how interested this girl is, and how much she will progress in the gospel - but I have learned an important lesson through getting to know her. We must always uplift those around us because we are ALL CHILDREN OF GOD. Because I know my worth, and because I know that I am a daughter of God, it is easier to me to look at those around me.. and recognize that they too are important and loved in God's eyes. We are not better because of a title, looks, popularity.. but we are all equal. We all need to be better at treating EVERYONE around us as a child of God.. someone with much worth. It is true that the worth of souls is GREAT in the sight of God.
I have really felt that although it is so important to spend our time working with investigators that will progress towards keeping commitments or getting baptized.. I also really feel that it is also important that every person I meet.. every single contact.. or every person I talk to through the day - feels closer to Christ, and knows their worth because of me, whether or not they accept the gospel. As I have had this mindset, it has helped me recognize more who I am.. and the love our Savior and Heavenly Father has for each of us.

Also.. ONE YEAR THIS LAST WEEK.. This has been one of the greatest years of my life. I am so grateful for the things I am experiencing.. Sometimes I feel like I never want this to end! Luckily, we trust in knowing that Heavenly Father does have a plan.. one that is better, and exactly what we need for growth and progression in this life. These are the things that are most important in life - I pray that I will remember these lessons za vekomaj!!!!!
Happy one year to me and this good old pal of mine.. stillllll in the same district hahaha
