So along with the waiting and logistical planing, I have also been immersed in my spiritual planning and preparation. Besides my desire to serve, and the confirmation I have received that this is the right thing to do, I feel completely inadequate when it comes to serving the Lord. I know that this is something that I am supposed to do but at the same time I am terrified because I barely even understand what it means to be a missionary, let alone how to be one. Fortunately my stake offers an extensive mission prep class every Sunday morning and let me tell you it is absolutely AMAZING! The spirit is so strong and I am even beginning to have some faith in myself along with the faith I have in my Heavenly Father. I have already learned so much and I feel like this class is the highlight of my week.
My Sundays are seriously the best because I go to mission prep from 7:30-8:30 a.m., then I drive straight across town to sacrament meeting at 9:00 a.m., after sacrament I have temple prep (LOVE IT), and finally I finish out my church meetings helping in the nursery. I don't think I could get a better meeting schedule.
Well even though time is dragging and the days seem to never end I have to admit that I know that there is still so much I need to learn and do before May and I am doing my best to make the most of the time I have left here. But May can you please hurry?
(This book is simply amazing. You should read it regardless of if you are going to serve a mission or not.)
