Pre-Mission Thoughts

15 Apr

So i thought id start this blog off right for those who are gonna try and follow it, with my permission thoughts. Its Thursday night, the Thursday before my date to report to the MTC. The MTC for those who don’t know is the Missionary Training Center. My training will be in Provo, Utah. I’ll be there for about 6 weeks under going 14hr days of training in Spanish and gospel and cultural related things. So today I’ve pretty much finished shopping, which for those of you who know me well, I’m not a big fan of it that’s been a great relief. I’ve also just been having spiritual boosters, i was able to give my second priesthood blessing, which let me tell you Ive never felt the spirit so strong in my whole life, it was to a lady who’s a very close family friend, more so id say shes pretty much family, it was a neat experience which i wont ever forget. My minds kinda been racing the last few days, as it gets closer and closer till i leave. I was able to visit Saint Louis, and see old friends and my old bishop who, honestly without him i don’t know that id be where i am at this particular moment, as i drove away from Saint Louis for the last time, all the people in my ward came out and waved me off, and it was very neat i cried as i drove away thinking how blessed i really was and how much i will miss them all. My feelings right now so that you can see what goes through a guys head before he leaves is of course that of to my friends and family. i will definitely miss the people in my life, but its also to excitement and peace of knowing who’s errand I’m about, following the commission of Christ to Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. That’s probably the scripture that’s most in my mind right now, knowing that I’m following the commission of my brother and savior Jesus Christ is a huge honor and i feel humbled and honored to be able to be worthy enough to serve in this commission. i think Ive said enough and bored you all, so ill write here again soon! i love you, and if you ever need anything you can email me or write me, i would love to hear from you. you can find all that information email and address posted here!
