Being a Missionary is like going to Disneyland.
Being a Missionary is like going to Disneyland. First you receive your ticket, also known as your plaque. I cant remember how to spell that! anyways. But in order to recieve this ticket you have to work really hard to earn money and save up and then purchase the ticket, its the same with the mission you have to prepare to have that plaque on your Chest everyday! Anways, you get to the land of disney and it is so great, you enter the park and you just dont know where to start, there is so many things to do, to see, to eat, to enjoy. Same in the mission field, you have sooo manny desires things to do, people to meet, things to talk about, and awesome weird food to eat. You arrive at the ride, you wait in line and are just super pumped to go on this ride, but you have to wait theres barriers your gonna have to get over! its the same with investigadors and you have to teach them lessons, bare strong testimony of many doctrinal points, and pray all the time, and then you arrive at the gate, where you have to great choice to enter into this jounrey, and boom this is baptism, its the beginning of the great ride! your there you made it, you sit down and get all settled, this is having a strong relationship with your ward to your recent convert! if you are seated correctly, and have proper security thingys, your going to be fine, your not going anywhere, thats why this point is sooo important. And then you set of on you journey, you have ups and downs, trials and great awesome times, its the same thing with investigadors, With our recent convert Francisco he has had his ups and downs, he ran into some anti mormon informacion on the internet, which is like a huge dip, but we helped him climp back up, Anyways also in disneyland, you have those rides that have broken down, all you have to do is fix them, these are the great members called Menos activos. With the help of the staff at good old disneyland, aka your aweomse consejo de barrio and ward, you can fix those rides, some are hard then others but you can also get them back on track! But most importantly with this analogy, which is awesome I know! There is an incredible magic in The land of Disney, and it comes from a great little mouse, Mickey! It is the same in the Misson Field, This is all possible with the incredible, magical, power of the infinite power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, he is what makes this incredible work, work! I know that he lives and that he is such an important, vital part of this work! He knows you and me sooo well, and we must always trust in him, siempre, during those bad times, as well as in the times that are great! I am ever so grateful for my Savior and Redentor, Jesus Christ!
Alright, I hope you all enjoyed the analogy, its pretty great!
