I don´t want to sound like a cliche missionary, but here it comes. I love this work. I love teaching this gospel to those who are hungry for it. Seeing the change in their eyes as they hear what they´ve been waiting for for so long.
We have a few investigators like that right now. Jorge mentioned to us that he has a past that he would like to forget. Guilt that haunts him day in and day out. He´s looking for forgiveness. A new start. And that´s what we have to offer him. When we teach him about the power of prayer, repentance, baptism, and the love that his Heavenly Father has for him, the Spirit is so strong.
This is why I´m here. To spread hope to all I can. Hope for new beginnings. Hope for forgiveness. Hope for truth. Hope for peace. Hope for something better. And even though it sounds cheesy, that hope is found in Christ. It´s incredible how the Gospel works. How simple it is, but what joy it can bring! Everyone is looking for it. You can see it in their soul, even if they don't realize it.
I´m not here to teach 45 lessons, find 12-15 new investigators, and contact 200 people in a week. They are great goals, but what feels even better than meeting those goals is meeting these people and seeing the change that they go through. That´s is something you CAN'T put on paper. Trust me, I´ve tried.
