Maribor, Slovenia: A Day in the Life of a Missionary


Many have asked what my days are like, so I thought I would give you a description with pictures.  A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SESTRA NYDEGGER... 

I love it. I love being a missionary and I love the schedule we live.. I advise you guys one day to go try contacting when you are bored.. it is SO MUCH FUN... We constantly pray, we study the scriptures, we pray some more, and we feel the pure joy and happiness that comes as we share the gospel. 

Also, this week they had a worldwide broadcast for all of the missionaries. They had not held one for 10 years, but it was so incredible. My favorite part was standing up and singing "Hark all ye Nations" and knowing that 75,000 other missionaries around the world right then were all singing at the exact same time. I feel so blessed every day that the Lord allowed me to be apart of his army.. I love missionary work. 

HAVE A GOOD WEEK LOVE YOU ALL!
